Call for Papers on "Cybercrime and Digital Law Enforcement"


Writing contest and general call for papers to coincide with "Digital Cops in a Virtual Environment: Cybercrime and Digital Law Enforcement," March 26-28, 2004, at Yale Law School.

The Yale Law School Information Society Project, the Yale Journal of Law & Technology, and the International Journal of Communications Law and Policy are pleased to announce an interdisciplinary writing competition and a call for papers in conjunction with "Digital Cops in a Virtual Environment: Cybercrime and Digital Law Enforcement," a conference which will take place on March 26-28, 2004, at Yale Law School.

This groundbreaking conference will bring together policy makers, security experts, law enforcement personnel, social activists, and academics to discuss the emerging phenomena of cybercrime and law enforcement. The conference will question both the efficacy of fighting cybercrime and the civil liberties implications arising from innovations in law enforcement methods of operation.

Papers from experts in all disciplines related to the conference and of all nationalities are welcome. The authors of the two best papers will be invited to present their work in a distinguished panel at the conference and will have their work published in special issues of either YJoLT or IJCLP dedicated to the conference. They will also receive full coverage of their travel and accommodation expenses to attend the conference. Competition entries are due by February 15, 2004.

The editorial boards of YJoLT and IJCLP will also consider papers for publication in the special issues up until May 1, 2004.

All submissions and inquiries should be sent to Dr. Simone Bonetti (simo.bonetti@tiscalinet.it), Professor Anil Samtani (asamtani@ntu.edu.sg)--lead editors, IJCLP--and Mr. Bryan McGee (bryan.mcgee@yale.edu)--editor-in-chief, YJoLT.
