PIL Seminar at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid, March 2012. Call for Papers

A new edition of the International Seminar on Private International Law (Universidad Complutense de Madrid) is to be held on March 2012, the 22 and 23. Venue will be the faculty of Law at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid – some sessions may take place elsewhere in Madrid.

Organizers, Prof. Fernández Rozas and Prof. de Miguel Asensio, have opted to follow last year’s pattern: a mixed model which combines a general approach allowing reflection on recent developments and the future of PIL, and a special focus on highly topical issues, as well as issues in need of particular study, such as torts and successions.

As in previous editions the seminar counts with several general lectures: some of the speakers will be Fausto Pocar (University of Milan), Michael Wilderspin (European Commission), Dário Moura Vicente (University of Lisboa), Sabine Courneloup (University of Bourgogne) and Eva Inés Obergfell (Humboldt-Universität Berlín). The seminar is otherwise open to scholars, either Spanish or foreigners, willing to participate. Papers can be presented in Spanish, English or French. Proposals are to be sent by email to Patricia Orejudo Prieto (patricia.orejudo@der.ucm.es), no later than December 15, 2011, including both the title and a brief summary.

Subject to prior scientific evaluation, papers will be included in the 2011 volume of the Anuario Español de Derecho Internacional Privado. The written version of the papers must be sent to Patricia Orejudo before April 1, 2012; this deadline is  non-extendable due to the closure requirements of the Yearbook.
