(Write On! is an occasional item about notable calls for papers)
Papers are being sought for a works-in-progress conference to held at the University of Missouri School of Law in Columbia on on October 21, 2011 -- the day before a symposium at which speakers from Europe and North America will discuss international dispute resolution. Keynote lecturer at the October 20 conference, entitled Border Skirmishes: The Intersection Between Litigation and International Commercial Arbitration, will be international arbitration expert Gary Born (WilmerHale); among others scheduled to speak are Louise Reilly (Court of Arbitration for Sport), Marianne Roth (Salzburg), and the convener, Stacie I. Strong (Missouri).
Submissions for the concomitant works-in-progress conference should bear some relationship to international commercial arbitration, transnational litigation, or the connection between the two. Deadline for works-in-progress proposals is May 20, 2011. (There's also a student writing contest.)
