From Robin Paul Malloy comes the CFP for next year's annual meeting of the Association for Law, Property, and Society (ALPS). The first two ALPS conferences were absolutely terrific, both for the scholarship and for the ability to meet so many other scholars in the field. For my money (or at least for my travel budget), ALPS is the single best conference to go to for property, land use, and real estate legal scholarship. Here's the CFP:

CALL FOR PAPERS: ASSOCIATION FOR LAW, PROPERTY, AND SOCIETY (ALPS)
ALPS, third Annual Meeting (supported by Syracuse University, College of Law and Georgetown University Law Center) to be held at Georgetown Law School, March 2-3, 2012. Our first two meetings included 150 participants each; of which approximately 1/3 were from outside of North America. The discussions on all areas of property were exciting and benefited from the diverse mix of viewpoints presented. We are looking forward to an equally good meeting this coming March.
This year registration will include an option to register to attend without presenting a paper. For those wishing to present a paper any topic on property law and policy is of interest and may be on any of a number of topic areas including: Real, Personal, and Intangible Property; Cultural Property; Intellectual Property; Real Estate Transactions and Finance; Land Use and Zoning; Urban Planning and Development; Environmental Law; Climate Change; Housing; Home; Green Development; Mortgages and Foreclosure; Land Titles; Indigenous Populations and Sovereignty; Human Rights and Property; Entrepreneurship and Property; Takings and Eminent Domain; Property Theory; Property History; The Economics of Property
Pencil it in now, and plan to be there in DC next March!
