CONFERENCE DESCRIPTION
How are knowledge, information, and other shared intellectual resources
governed? Building upon the successful 2012 global thematic IASC conference
on knowledge commons, this 2nd conference aims to take stock of the latest
developments in the interdisciplinary study of knowledge commons. The
conference will seek to better understand how knowledge commons work,
where they come from, what contributes to their durability and effectiveness,
and what undermines them. This year’s program will highlight knowledge
commons in the fields of medicine and the environment by devoting special
paper tracks and policy sessions to those topics. The Conference organizers
invite paper submissions in the following areas:

ABOUT
The International Association for the Study of the Commons

The International Association for the Study of the Commons (IASC) is a
nonprofit Association devoted to understanding and improving institutions for
the management of resources that are (or could be) held or used collectively by
communities in developing or developed countries. IASC's goals are to
encourage exchange of knowledge among diverse disciplines, areas, and
resource types; to foster mutual exchange of scholarship and practical
experience; and to promote appropriate institutional design.

The Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy at NYU School of Law sponsors
interdisciplinary work in the area of innovation law and policy. It draws together
legal scholars and practitioners, economists, historians, culturalists, social
scientists, and representatives of the innovation industries to examine questions
on allocating global resources to creative activities; to study the legal regimes
and cultural forces that influence innovation; to explore methods for optimizing
the exploitation of intellectual products; and to search for new ways to facilitate
the transfer of technology from creator to end-user, across fields, and among
nations.

ABOUT The International Association for the Study of the Commons The International Association for the Study of the Commons (IASC) is a nonprofit Association devoted to understanding and improving institutions for the management of resources that are (or could be) held or used collectively by communities in developing or developed countries. IASC's goals are to encourage exchange of knowledge among diverse disciplines, areas, and resource types; to foster mutual exchange of scholarship and practical experience; and to promote appropriate institutional design. The Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy at NYU School of Law sponsors interdisciplinary work in the area of innovation law and policy. It draws together legal scholars and practitioners, economists, historians, culturalists, social scientists, and representatives of the innovation industries to examine questions on allocating global resources to creative activities; to study the legal regimes and cultural forces that influence innovation; to explore methods for optimizing the exploitation of intellectual products; and to search for new ways to facilitate the transfer of technology from creator to end-user, across fields, and among nations. 9
