We are pleased to announce the second annual Roundtable on Empirical Methods in Intellectual Property, co-hosted with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The roundtable will take place in Chicago, IL on September 19-20.
The roundtable is intended to give scholars engaging in empirical and experimental studies of IP a chance to receive feedback on their work at an early stage in their research. Accordingly, the roundtable will be limited to a small cohort of scholars discussing projects that are still in their developmental stages. See below for the program schedule.

PatCon 3: The annual Patent Conference
April 12–13, 2013
IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law
565 West Adams Street
Chicago, Illinois 60661
The Patent Conference is a cooperative effort among the University of Kansas School of Law, IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law, University of San Diego School of Law, and Boston College Law School to hold an annual conference where patent scholars in law, economics, management science, and other disciplines can share their research.
In 2010, the founders of PatCon—law professors David Olson, Dave Schwartz, Ted Sichelman and Andrew Torrance—realized that the growth and importance of research in the area of patents required an exclusive forum that would enable participants to share their research with other experts and explore links across the legal and business side of patents.
