ALSA is pleased to announce that in collaboration with the National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University School of Law (NYCU Law), an international conference on “Emerging Technologies, Social Change, and Legal Innovation” will be held on 2 to 3 December 2023 at the Guangfu Campus in Hsinchu, Taiwan. The conference aims to explore the complex interplay between emerging technologies, social change, and legal innovation. In the past few decades, we have seen the rapid development and deployment of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, fintech, blockchain, and regenerative medicine, which have had a significant impact on society. As a result, laws and regulations have been struggling to keep up with the pace of technological innovation. This conference aims to explore the legal implications of these emerging technologies and examine the ways in which laws can be adapted to meet the challenges posed by technological advancements.
We invite scholars from various disciplines, including law, technology, management, policy, and science, technology, and society (STS), including young scholars and doctoral students, to submit abstracts for papers that explore the impact of emerging technologies on law, society, and governance. The conference will offer a platform for interdisciplinary discussions and an opportunity for participants to share their research, experiences, and ideas on this important topic.
