    The number of seats is limited;
    please register in advance to reserve your place at [masked]



    The goal of the meeting is to provide legal academics and practitioners a window into the science that might be relevant for law and policy, and to provide scientists with an equally interesting window into the law and policy that might be relevant for their science.  To this end It would be great to have a presentation of your research that is tuned to a mixed audience of scientists and non-scientists.


    A broader goal  is to promote interactions between scientists who may not be fully cognizant of the multitude of relevant legal issues and concerns associated with their research and its applications, and the lawyers who may eventually regulate or even use this science, and its applications, and may not be cognizant of the exact limitations and strengths of the science.
