A thousand years ago, when King Sweyn I Forkbeard (left) and his son Canute the Great founded a little fishing village on a fine harbor in Jutland, they might have thought that one day it would become one of Europe's great cities. But they probably had absolutely no idea that the place, later known as Copenhagen would one day host the International Conference on Business, Law, and Technology, which is scheduled this December 5-7, 2006.
Papers are still being accepted for the conference; the submission deadline is October 20. The organizers have a long list of topics they're interested in, which include Sales of Goods, Electronic Signatures, Contract Law, Consumer Protection, and E-business. Selected papers will be published in a book, Business Law: Present and Emerging Trends.
