Call for abstracts – BILETA Symposium ‘Finding An Optimal Way to Tackle the Technology Maze’, Jindal University (India), 6-7January 2023

BILETA in partnership with Jindal University (India) invites you to consider the call for abstracts for a symposium on ‘Finding an Optimal Solution to Tackle the Technology Maze: Mapping Law and Policy Interventions‘, which will take place at Jindal University on 6th-7th January 2023.

Technology has brought significant enhancement in everyone’s quality of life. Moreover, the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the acceptance of technological innovations. There has been a spurt in internet and IT-supported services, from educational institutions using online platforms to the judiciary hearing matters through video conferencing. The growth of electronic commerce, including tele-medicine, is another example representing a shift towards enhanced use of technology.

With the rapid technological expansion, there are concerns about whether the existing legal and policy governance structure can address diverse and complex challenges. With the idea of addressing some of these challenges, this symposium will invite discussion on the following sub-themes:

  • Emerging issues in Data protection law
  • Society, Behaviour & Technology
  • Cyberlaw & Cyber Security
  • Legal Liability of Online Intermediaries
  • Emerging issues in Intellectual Property Law

Important dates:

  • Last date of submission of abstract: 15th November 2022 *** extended deadline: 30 November 2022
  • Letters of acceptance: 30th November 2022
  • Deadline for registration: 15th December 2022
  • Symposium dates: 6th & 7th January 2023

Due to ongoing uncertainty of national and international travel, BILETA symposium will be held in a hybrid mode. Presenters can attend the conference virtually from their respective locations or attend it physically on the JGU campus as well.
