Call for Papers: Big Data, Health Law, and Bioethics

The Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School seeks submissions for their 2016 annual conference, entitled: “Big Data, Health Law, and Bioethics.”

This conference, and anticipated edited volume, will aim to: (1) identify the various ways in which law and ethics intersect with the use of big data in health care and health research, particularly in the United States; (2) understand the way U.S. law (and potentially other legal systems) currently promotes or stands as an obstacle to these potential uses; (3) determine what might be learned from the legal and ethical treatment of uses of big data in other sectors and countries; and (4) examine potential solutions (industry best practices, common law, legislative, executive, domestic and international) for better use of big data in health care and health research in the U.S.

Send a 1-page abstract of the paper you would plan to present to as soon as possible, but not later than December 1, 2015.
