1st JIRICO GLOBAL WRITING WORKSHOP & RESEARCH COLLOQUIUM FOR YOUNG SCHOLARS
August 17th-August 23rd, 2017
JINDAL GLOBAL LAW SCHOOL, O. P. JINDAL GLOBAL UNIVERSITY, DELHI NCR, INDIA FROM AUGUST 17– 23, 2017
Jindal Initiative for Research on IP & Competition (JIRICO) at O.P. Jindal Global University is pleased to announce “a new writing & research colloquium” for young scholars, Ph.D. students and junior faculty scheduled to take place from August 17 to 23, 2017 in India.
Participants will be selected from a global pool of young scholars. They will discuss their ideas, conduct original research with all other workshop participants, during the course of one week culminating in a thought-provoking working paper which will be presented by them on the last day which is the Research colloquium at New Delhi, INDIA.
Senior faculty and scholars will be invited to help guide the discussions and give comments on each paper during the course of the workshop. The commentators will be subject-area experts not only from Jindal Global Law School (JGLS), but also from our reputed partner universities spread around the world. Applicants are welcome to share names of two people who may be invited for commenting on their paper alongwith contact/addresses as well. Other than the workshop attendees, the colloquium audience will include invitee commentators and distinguished experts from the industry, academia and government agencies and the faculty members from O.P Jindal Global University.
JIRICO aims to promote research on relevant areas (not limited to India) at the intersection of IP laws, competition/antitrust law, economics, policy and business by assisting young scholars, including doctoral candidates and junior faculty, conduct original and inter-disciplinary research resulting in publishable papers. The participants will be required to contribute their working papers (at least 5000 words) to “JIRICO Discussion Paper Series” that will be uploaded online on the day of the Colloquium, and are given the option of contributing for a subsequent publication in a good quality, peer-reviewed journal of choice. The working papers must be developed and submitted by September 1st, 2017 for such journal publication to materialize, which is why participants are advised to plan their research and writing before the workshop.
The uniqueness of JIRICO writing & discussion workshop is to bring together and support deserving participants and assist them in their research in an incremental fashion. We expect applicants to submit an extended abstract of 750 to 1000 words consisting of (1) a topic, (2) research questions, (3) proposed methodology, (4) nature of research, (5) scope and jurisdiction of research by Sunday, June 25, 2017.
On a blind basis, participants will be selected and intimated by July 22, 2017. Previously published work or works accepted for publication elsewhere will not be considered.
Full and partial scholarships covering economy-class air travel, accommodation for the duration of the workshop, food and limited access to university services (such as library resources, sports facilities and ongoing university events) will be offered on merit basis.
We will allow co-authored works as long as the participating author fulfills the eligibility requirement stated above. In this case, only the participating author will be eligible for scholarship (full or partial).
