Please mark your calendars for PatCon 6, the sixth annual Patent Conference, which will take place on Friday, April 8 to Saturday, April 9, 2016, at Boston College Law School.

The Patent Conference is an interdisciplinary forum where scholars from the fields of law, economics, management science, public health, history of science, and other disciplines can share their research. In addition, PatCon stands out in its commitment to including judges, USPTO personnel, and members of industry in order to encourage applications of scholarship in the wider world.
The Patent Conference is a cooperative effort among Boston College Law School (David Olson), the University of Kansas School of Law (Andrew Torrance), Northwestern University School of Law (David Schwartz), and the University of San Diego School of Law (Ted Sichelman).
We will post a Call-for-Papers soon, but please feel free to contact me in the meantime with any questions at We hope to see you at PatCon 6!

Best regards,
David Olson, David Schwartz, Ted Sichelman, and Andrew Torrance
About PatCon: The Patent Conference began in 2010, when the founders of PatCon—law professors David Olson, David Schwartz, Ted Sichelman, and Andrew Torrance—realized that the growth and importance of research in the area of patents required an exclusive forum that would enable participants to share their research with other experts and explore links across the legal and business side of patents.
