A day-long gathering where intellectual property scholars present their works in progress for commentary in a workshop environment.  The papers for review will examine issues on a variety of topics relating to innovation and intellectual property protection in design.  Each paper will receive 45 minutes of review:  15 minutes of presentation by an author and 10 minutes of critique by a designated commentator, followed by 20 minutes of open discussion. The program includes keynote talks by design experts Judy Yee (Microsoft) and Michael Bierut (Pentagram).  The conference will conclude with a paper slam in which authors will share information and invite commentary on their works in early stages of development.

Conference is by invitation only.
