2015 Works in Progress Intellectual Property Colloquium

The George Washington University Law School and the United States Patent and Trademark Office have been jointly selected to host the 2015 Works in Progress Intellectual Property Colloquium in Alexandria, Virginia, on February 6–7, 2015.  Since its inception in 2003, the annual WIPIP Colloquium has grown to become one of the leading annual intellectual property conferences, particularly for research that is still in development and so may benefit most from scholarly discussion.  GW Law and the USPTO look forward to continuing the WIPIP tradition of fostering robust and productive discussion of intellectual property law and policy scholarship, with particular focus on early-stage research.
