I'm late getting to this (my own fault, I missed an important email), but We: Robot, the Robotics and the Law Conference at Stanford Law
School is still accepting papers until Jan 18. Last year's event was apparently smashing, and this year's CFP is quite enticing:
The following list is by no means exhaustive, but rather meant as an elaboration on conference themes:
Legal and policy responses to likely effects of robotics on manufacturing or the environment
Perspectives on the interplay between legal frameworks and robotic software and hardware
Intellectual property issues raised by collaboration within robotics (or with robots)
Perspectives on collaboration between legal and technical communities
Tort law issues, including product liability, professional malpractice, and the calculation of damages
Administrative law issues, including FDA or FAA approval
Privacy law and privacy enhancing technologies
Comparative/international perspectives on robotics law
Issues of legal and economic policy, including tax, employment, and corporate governance
In addition to scholarly papers, we invite proposals for demos of cutting-edge commercial applications of robotics or recent technical research that speaks one way or another to the immediate commercial prospects of robots.
