A Meatier Taste: More IFCLA Conference Articles

May 17, 2016

The June/July issue of {i}Computers & Law{/i} will feature articles from speakers at the {IFCLA Conference 2016: http://www.scl.org/site.aspx?i=ev42040}, which is SCL’s major event in 2016 (replacing the annual SCL conference). We posted two taster articles last week and are now offering the chance for online readers to take a bigger, meatier bite with articles from Joachim Schwerin and Bojana Bellamy and Markus Heyder.

Joachim’s piece, {‘Humans, Machines and Regulators: FinTech in the Human-to-Human Economy and Beyond’: http://www.scl.org/site.aspx?i=ed47679}, is an enlightened and opinionated look at the prospects for innovation in financial services. The article from Bojana Bellamy and Markus Heyder, {‘Protecting Privacy in a World of Big Data: The Role of Enhanced Accountability’: http://www.scl.org/site.aspx?i=ed47678}, is a carefully considered analysis of the balance that society needs, and organisations need to implement, when encouraging a data-driven economy but not seeking to sacrifice privacy rights. Bojana and Joachim are speakers at the IFCLA Conference 2016.

The topics covered at the IFCLA Conference range across the spectrum of current legal and tech concerns: FinTech, healthcare augmented by technology, cybersecurity, IoT and data analytics, the Digital Single Market and blockchain to name just a few. The likely debates, especially on privacy, FinTech and cybersecurity, should make time and money spent in attending worthwhile and our articles can only give a flavour of this major two-day event.

The two earlier taster articles were from {Kenny Robertson on FinTech: http://www.scl.org/site.aspx?i=ed47629} – and {Indra Spiecker genannt Doehmann on the effects ‘Industry 4.0’ will have on the legal system and the ‘contrat social’: http://www.scl.org/site.aspx?i=ed47630}.

Our taster articles, selected from those that will appear in {i}Computers & Law{/i}, cannot reflect the full issue. And the magazine has space for only a quarter of the speakers at the IFCLA Conference. To get the full IFCLA Conference experience and to hear the full range of international speakers, including a series of top names and keynotes from Professor Richard Susskind OBE and tech guru Misha Dohler, you will have to attend the Conference itself.
