Call for Papers for Warsaw
The Call for Papers, which was distributed through a number of academic and practitioner channels and journals, has triggered a high level of interest. From the 35 abstracts submitted close to 20 authors qualified as eligible and shall be considered for the prize giving competition. This is a very successful result and proves the attractive format and opportunity which AIDA Europe is offering to academia and legal research. It also underlines AIDA Europe's focus on one of its main goals for the Warsaw Conference titled "De-Mystifying InsurTech: a Legal and Regulatory View", which is to provide for a critical review of the legal and regulatory issues related to InsurTech, a key development and challenge to law making, academia, the insurance markets and the society at large.
