5th Journal of Private International Law Conference in Madrid on 12-13 September 2013 – Call for papers


Building on the very successful Journal of Private International Law conferences in Aberdeen (2005), Birmingham (2007), New York (2009), and Milan (2011) we now invite abstracts for the next conference in Madrid on 12-13 September 2013.  Abstracts should be up to 500 words in length and should clearly state the name(s) and affiliation(s) of the author(s).  They can be on any subject matter that falls within the scope of the Journal – see http://www.hartjournals.co.uk/jprivintl/index.html – and can be offered by people at all stages of their career including postgraduate students.  Please submit an abstract if you want to make a presentation at the conference and you are willing to produce a final paper that you will submit exclusively to the Journal to be considered for publication, subject to the Journal’s standard refereeing procedures.  Presentation at the conference will depend on whether your abstract is selected by the Editors of the Journal (Professors Jonathan Harris of King’s College, London and Paul Beaumont of Aberdeen) and by the conference organisers in Madrid (Professors Pedro de Miguel Asensio and Carmen Otero of UCM and Francisco Garcimartin and Elena Rodriguez of UAM).

There will be a mixture of plenary and panel sessions.  Please indicate on the abstract whether you are willing to present in either or are only willing to do so in one or the other.

The Conference will be held in the centre of Madrid (C/Carlos Arniches 3), in the facility of ‘La Corrala’ that belongs to UAM. The venue is close to La Latina and Puerta de Toledo metro stations.

Speakers will not be expected to pay a conference fee but will be expected to pay their expenses to get to Madrid and stay in hotels there.  Madrid boasts a large number of hotels with a wide range of prices. A certain number of rooms may be reserved for the Conference participants at rates offered to UAM and UCM.

Please send your abstract to the following email address by Friday 25 January 2013: (Jpil.2013.Madrid@gmail.com)
