The Second International Pre-Olympics Legal Conference on Legal, Security and Privacy Issues in IT will be held in Beijing, China from December 5 - December 7, 2007. May 2, 2006. You are cordially invited to participate in this forthcoming conference, which will focus on all legal and technological issues related to IT/ Internet, including media law. Industries are also invited to give a presentation about their organisation and activities in connection with IT Law.

Call for Papers. Industries and Academics may submit a research paper or make an oral presentation. (For further details about the CFP, see attachment or visit the website) The latter requires a 100 word-abstract. All the academic papers for presentation will be published in the book, Cyberlaw and Security (ISBN: 87-991385-4-9 & 87-991385-5-7), and nominated to our 16 sponsoring international journals. All final camera ready versions are sent for proof-reading and 99% of papers accepted in the IAITL- organised conferences (see www.iblt.eu ; www.iltc.eu )have been published in leading international journals. The Conference is organised by the International Association of IT Lawyers (IAITL) and the Tsinghua University Internet Behaviour Institute. The Program Organisers have organised special sessions, panel discussions and networking activities, in addition to the social activities for participants and family members.

University Presentation. A growing number of Chinese are seeking further international education in various countries. We invite universities to join the University Exhibition which will be conducted in conjunction with the LSPI Conference.. The LSPI Conference also offers an opportunity for established foreign programmes of study to be presented by senior representatives from those universities present at the conference. It is planned that education agents will also be on hand to offer expert advice and representation on the entry and visa requirements for these institutions to students interested in making applications. It is recognised that more countries need to open their doors to Chinese students since China now offers a potentially huge market for foreign study.

Career Fair. Access to trusted legal partners is a vital component of foreign investment and business decisions. The LSPI Conference will provide an opportunity for law firms and companies to meet with some of China's ablest lawyers and business advisors. The LSPI Conference will also provide an opportunity for law firms and companies to provide potential recruits with information about various job opportunities and graduate trainee programmes available in their companies or organisations. Networking opportunities with lawyers, business advisors, and graduate students will allow firms to meet prospective business partners, as well as future employees, from the rich talent pool available in this area
