CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
     
          SECOND WORKSHOP FOR JUNIOR RESEARCHERS ON THE LAW
     AND ECONOMICS OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND COMPETITION LAW
     
     
     From June 5 to June 7, 2011, the International Max Planck 
     Research School for Competition and Innovation - 
     http://www.ip.mpg.de/go/ipmrs-ci - and the Professorship 
     for Intellectual Property at ETH Zurich -
     http://www.ip.ethz.ch - will jointly organize their Second 
     Workshop for Junior Researchers on the Law and Economics of 
     Intellectual Property and Competition Law.
     
     The workshop will enable a small number of junior 
     researchers from law and from economics to engage in an 
     intensive, rigorous discussion of their own scholarly work. 
     Several senior professors from law and from economics
     departments in Europe and the United States will provide 
     feedback on the research projects. Commentators include 
     faculty of both hosting institutions as well as Professors 
     Dan L. Burk (University of California at Irvine), Michael 
     Meurer (Boston University), and Timothy Simcoe (Boston 
     University).
      
     The workshop will be held in Wildbad Kreuth, a lovely 
     region one hour south of Munich, Germany. The organizers 
     will fund travel and hotel expenses for all invited 
     workshop participants.
