 Infosoc Conference The future of.. Conference on Law & Technology
 The future of..

On the 28th and 29th October 2008 the European University Institute will
host in Florence the first edition of "The future of..." Conference on Law &
Technology, organized by the InfoSoc Working Group in conjunction with the
Law department of the European University Institute.

Such conference aims to be an original and ground-breaking symposium,
attracting quality papers dealing with prospective studies and analyzes of
legal developments and transformations expected in the future. Taking into
account the present technological trends affecting society, the "Future of…"
Conference challenges scholars to think and foresee the main problems and
changes that Law will face and suffer in the upcoming future of ambient
technologies, ubiquitous and pervasive computing, web 3.0, mixed realities
(convergence between virtual and physical domains), autonomous software
agents, artificial intelligence and many other features and elements.

The conference thus welcomes the contribution of scholars and researchers
from anywhere in the world, whose interests and research are directed
towards the assessment of the evolving relationship that might develop
between law and technology. In particular, the contributions shall relate to
the interplay of law and technology and the impact it may have on the future
of the information society, with strong focus on the complementary and/or
conflictual nature of technology, as it may be employed to enforce certain
legal provisons, or, alternatively, to bypass the law to eventually replace
the legal regime by technological means.
