CALL FOR PAPERS

EMPIRICAL STUDIES OF TRADEMARK DATA WORKSHOP AT USPTO

SEPTEMBER 26-27, 2013

 

Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and Policy, New York University School of Law

and the

United States Patent and Trademark Office

 

in cooperation with

 

Center for Law & Economics, ETH Zurich

Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre

University of East Anglia

 

We are seeking paper proposals from economics, management, and legal scholars on the empirical study of trademark data for a one-and-a-half day workshop at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Alexandria, Virginia to occur on September 26-27, 2013. This will constitute the companion workshop to our previous workshop at the University of Oxford in December 2012. Like its Oxford counterpart, this workshop is part of a broader project to support better scholarship in this embryonic area of research and lead to the publication of high quality and high impact studies. With the increased availability of trademark data, we are soliciting papers that open up new avenues of trademark research. Papers with empirical or experimental data and papers with a U.S., international, or foreign focus are welcome.

 

The project is co-sponsored by the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and Policy at New York University School of Law and the United States Patent and Trademark Office in cooperation with the Center for Law & Economics, ETH Zurich, the Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre, and the Centre for Competition Policy (UEA).

 

Authors whom we were unable to accommodate at Oxford are encouraged to apply to this workshop.

 

Interested authors are encouraged to submit either a completed paper or a two‐page research proposal that includes an abstract of the intended paper, an outline of the methodologies to be used, and a brief statement about the current state of the research project. Interested authors are also encouraged to indicate whether they would be willing to serve only as discussants in the event that the schedule cannot accommodate their papers. In addition to the conference dinner, standard fare travel and hotel accommodation for the presenting author will be provided.

 

Proposals should be submitted by June 24, 2013, to saurabh.vishnubhakat@uspto.gov.

 

Authors will be notified of acceptance by July 15, 2013.

 

Please direct any questions to Barton Beebe (barton.beebe@nyu.edu) or Alan Marco (alan.marco@uspto.gov).
