The IAITL Legal Conference Series




Dear Participants,


On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to thank everyone who made it out to the 2014 IAITL Conference. We would like to thank all the incredibly inspirational and talented moderators, panelists, keynote speakers, authors and presenters. Their work and amazing presentations are proof of the high quality that the IAITL conference series has come to be known for. We were truly honored to hold this Conference which was with your help a resounding success!


Our planning team have reviewed the possibility of hosting the conference in 2015 and it is with much regret that we must announce the cancellation of the IAITL Conference series. The decision not to proceed with the conference has been a difficult one and has not been taken lightly. The IAITL remains firmly committed to it's mission of providing opportunities for previous participants and members to come together to further strengthen, support and promote the high quality of legal scholarship from experts from academia, government and industry in order to 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.


We thank all participants once again for having made the IAITL legal conference series a success.

The IAITL 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 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, Bangkok and more recently Lisbon.

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.
