About GikII VIII

When robots, drones, autonomous agents, Facebook stalking, teleportation, 3D printing, MMORPGS, science fiction, computer games and superhero justice are discussed within the realms of the law and LOL cats, you know the time for the annual GikII workshop has arrived!  Yes it’s time for GikII VIII – and a time to immerse ourselves in debates about cutting-edge technology, popular culture and the law.

GikII is being hosted with the kind assistance of the Law Department and the Centre for Intellectual Property Policy and Management (CIPPM) at Bournemouth University. The dates provide you with the opportunity to combine GikII VIII with the Society for Computers and Law Workshop (12-13th September in London) and make it a ‘Geek Week’ with a beach week-end in-between. We point out however that buckets and spades are not provided!

When and Where

The GikII VIII Workshop will take place on 16 and 17 September 2013 at the Executive Business Centre, Bournemouth University, which is a 5 minute walk from Bournemouth railway station. Please arrive for registration and refreshments at 9.30am (the conference will start at 10.00am).

The nearest pay and display car parks to the EBC are shown here (Cotlands Road being the most convenient). Please note, although the EBC has its own very small car park there is no space for visitor parking.

Evening Entertainment

We will be holding an informal conference dinner at Hot Rocks restaurant on the evening of Monday 16 September at 7.30pm, at a cost of £16.95 per person. This dinner is optional and the price is NOT included in your GikII conference ticket. All attendees will be required to pay for their meals on the evening.
