The 2014 IAITL Conference series will be held in Lisbon under the auspices of the International Association of IT Lawyers. The conference series is the first international conference of its kind, gathering experts from academia, government and industry to discuss key legal issues related to Legal, Security and Privacy Issues in IT, Private Law, Public Law and the intersection between economics and law.


This is the only conference where:


• All papers are blind reviewed by 2-3 experts and the result of the reviews are given within a week

• All papers are edited to ensure quality before book publication

• All papers are also published in top international journals after a second round of editing

• Authors participate in panel sessions, aside from giving an individual presentation

• Policy debates and workshops are conducted and the Conclusions are published in top journals

• Social and entertainment events are organized every night

• Buffet meals are provided

• University Partnership Agreements and Exchanges are forged

• Cooperation and projects are organized and developed



This conference was first held in May 2006 in Hamburg, Germany and it generated significant international participation from a broad spectrum of academics, government officials, lawyers, judges and industry representatives interested in information technology law and policy. Since then, we have been in Copenhagen, Istanbul, Beijing, New York, Prague, Malta, Barcelona, Nicosia, Athens and more recently Bangkok.

We are delighted to build on this success and develop a first-rate program for the upcoming conference in Lisbon, Portugal. The Conference is intended to bring together early career researchers from around the world interested to meet up with more established academics, judges, European Commission and other public sector specialists and industry leaders to discuss issues and topics at the heart of current developments.

Our conferences are devoted to expanding understanding and developing international relationships among those who are working with issues dealing with information technology, economic and public and private law. The guiding principle of the Conference is to encourage communication and discussion of ideas at the frontiers of research. IAITL provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest research results and practical applications and stimulates interdisciplinary and international collaboration.

We are putting together a program that will fulfill this goal with an outstanding collection of speakers and discussants from all over the world. We will have an interesting mix of researchers, members of the judiciary, academic community, government policy executives and representatives from the ICT industry and trade.

The Conference will provide an opportunity for academics, practitioners and consultants from different backgrounds to come together and exchange ideas to discuss significant developments affecting practice and profession in Public and Private Law, including IT law, Trade and Economics, Technology and emerging issues on security.
