LASA 2007 has a place!

Following the policy of blank denial of visas to scholars from some Latin American countries, the Latin American Studies Association decided to relocate its International Congress outside United States. Now the LASA 2007 Congress will be held in Montreal, Canada, between the 6 and 8 of September of 2007.
The original call for papers for the Law and Technology panel is here and following there is a reminder

Reminder Call for papers (the place and date of the Congress has been decided)
Law, Technology and Society in Latin America

Papers are invited to be presented at a panel on the relationship between law, technology and its impact on society in Latin America to be held at the 2007 International Congress of the Latin American Studies Association (LASA 2007), sponsored by the Law & Society Section in Latin America (LASLA), which will take place in Montreal, Canada, between the 6 and 8 of September 2007.
The panel will focus on the link between law and technology and the ways that is affecting society in Latin America.
While the methodology is open, it is expected that the papers would be based on theoretical and empirical work leading to the development of grounded theory, as well as more policy orientated studies which feed directly into the policy making process. They would normally be built on a multi or inter-disciplinary approach.

The panel will concentrate on the following issues:

-Legal aspects of E-Government
-Data protection law and policies
-Intellectual Property rights, technology and development
-Cybercrime and cyberlaw
-Law, technology and innovation policy
-Freedom of expression and new technologies

Submissions in the form of an abstract should be e-mailed to Dr. Fernando Barrio and it must be received by noon GMT, August 18th, 2006.
The instructions for the paper submission cab be found here
