We are pleased to announce a prize for early career researchers as part of an interdisciplinary workshop on Generative AI and the Law that will be held in Berlin on 6 July 2023. The workshop will bring together leading experts from diverse disciplines to explore the potential role and impact of Generative AI on different legal fields. As part of this workshop, we are inviting submissions for the Early Career Scholars Panel. We are looking for innovative and original contributions from early career researchers on topics related to the intersection of Generative AI and the Law.
Eligible applicants include current PhD scholars as well as post-doctoral scholars (up to 2 years of completing their PhD at the time of the workshop). The organisers will accept papers written by several authors (including more senior scholars), as long as an early career researcher is named as the lead author.
The workshop organisers will award a prize for the best paper by early career scholar(s). The top three finalists for the prize will be invited to present their work at a panel during the workshop in Berlin. The best submissions for the prize will also have the opportunity to be published as part of an edited volume or handbook on this topic, currently in discussion with a world-leading academic publisher.
Submissions should be around 10,000 words (excluding footnotes). You should include an abstract of no more than 200 words, and a brief biography of the author(s), including their current academic affiliation(s) and any relevant publications.
An extended abstract (4,500 words) should be sent to Professor Mimi Zou firstname.lastname@example.org by 9 May 2023. Shortlisted candidates will be contacted in the same week and asked to submit the final submission (10,000 words) to Prof. Zou by 15 June 2023.
