Summertime in Paris

Summer seems not much more than a distant memory on such a dreary January day, but it appears that preparations are already well underway for this year's summer schools. Our younger readers may be interested to learn that CERDI (Centre d'Etudes et de Recherche en Droit de l'Immatériel), the IP centre of the universities Paris-Sud and Paris-Sorbonne, is hosting an 'International Summer Seminar on Copyright' from 9 to 13 July 2012.

The seminar is directed at young copyright scholars and professionals (young means under 40 in the world of copyright). From the information available at this stage it appears that the CERDI summer seminar will be held partly in English and partly in French, and a working knowledge of either language would seem to be sufficient. In total, there will be eight half-days of seminars, two half-days of sight-seeing, and a closing conference followed by a 'festive meal'. There is a fee of 250 EUR for meals and accommodation, but otherwise the seminar is free.

If this has got you interested, further information is available on the CERDI website here. You can 'pre-subscribe' here, i.e. register your interest and pick the topics of the seminars in which you would like to participate (you must choose at least ten including three on which you would be prepared to give a short presentation). You can also suggest additional topics.
