Sixth Annual ISHTIP Workshop
The Instability of Intellectual Property
Uppsala, Sweden July 2-4, 2014
The conference is free of charge and supported by the Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences (Riksbankens Jubileumsfond). The organizers will provide refreshments/lunch to all registered participants.
Hosted by the Department of Archival Science, Library & Information Science and Museology & Heritage Studies (ALM), Uppsala University in collaboration with the Faculty of Law, Uppsala University and Linköping University in Sweden.
By choosing the theme of The Instability of Intellectual Property for the 2014 ISHTIP workshop at Uppsala University we want to focus on the ways in which intellectual property moves and travels across disciplinary, legal, linguistic, and geopolitical borders.
A preliminary programme (that will be subject to changes) is now available. More commentators will be added over the coming weeks.
Founded in 1477, Uppsala University is the oldest Nordic university. Carolus Linneaus, Olof Rudbeck and Anders Celsius are some of Uppsala’s most well-known historic figures. Today, Uppsala University is home to more than 40.000 students (More Information).

The organizers have reserved a number of rooms in three different hotels, all within a 5-minute walk from the University Main Building where the workshop will take place. Participants should contact the hotels directly to reserve a room, indicating a preference for single or double accommodation, and whether a double room is acceptable in lieu of a single. Again, these rooms will be allocated according to the order of receipt of requests. Payment will be made by participants directly to respective hotel, but in order to benefit from the preferential workshop rates, participants need to quote the reference indicated below at the time of booking. Rooms have been reserved for the period of July 1 to July 5, and will be held by the hotels until May 31, when they become available for general booking. Room prices are given in Swedish Kronor/Euro/U.S. dollars and include a breakfast buffé (but please note that the exchange rate may fluctuate!).
