The 3rd annual ASU-Arkfeld eDiscovery Conference will be on March 12-14, 2015. Get your proposed papers in now.

In the event you have a great eDiscovery treatise banging around in your head (or your desk drawer), here is the opportunity for you.

A respected conference focused on eDiscovery and digital evidence is seeking papers on the topic. They are due by December 2, though, so sharpen your (digital) pencils.

Here is more from conference organizers:

“The Conference welcomes papers that fit within our 2015 theme: ‘Know the Law, Know the Technology.’ Papers might address law, technology, or the intersection of the two. All papers submitted will be fully refereed by a minimum of two specialized referees.”

“Only accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Best papers awards will be distributed during the conference, authors will be given an opportunity to briefly present their papers, and selected papers may be published in Law Technology News.”

“Authors whose papers are accepted will be entitled to complimentary registration for the conference. Papers must comply with the guidelines set forth in the attached announcement. The length of the articles will be 800-1000 words.”

The eDiscovery paper brochure is here. Click for more information.

More detail about the conference itself, to be held March 12-14, 2015, is here.

Scheduled for March 12 to 14, the third annual “ASU-Arkfeld eDiscovery and Digital Evidence Conference” features some talented panels of lawyers and judges. Those judges include some of the leading jurists who have rendered major e-discovery opinions: Judges Shira A. Scheindlin, John Facciola and Craig Shaffer.

If any lawyer or law student is headed to the conference (just part of it or the entire two days), and if you would like to write a blog post, please feel free to contact me. I’d be pleased to run it following the ASU event. (Photos are welcome too!)

I wrote about last year’s conference, here and here. I’d expect more great content this week.

As the ASU Law School describes it:

“The Second Annual ASU–Arkfeld eDiscovery and Digital Evidence Conference will focus on the practical and cutting-edge issues affecting the discovery and admission of electronic information. The annual conference is hosted by the Center for Law, Science & Innovation, in collaboration with Michael Arkfeld, Director of the ASU–Arkfeld eDiscovery Program.”

You may register here.

It’s looking like I will be unable to attend any of the events at this year’s conference. But I’d enjoy hearing from someone who does attend. If you’d like to write a follow-up post, long-ish or short-ish, just let me know. It could be an overview of the entire conference, or a briefer post on a single panel or on the keynote address, delivered by Judge John Facciola. And photos are always welcome.
