Both law and machine are man's creations. Both exist to serve him, but may very well hurt him too, since both they are not always used for their intended purposes. Law and machines can come from the noblest enterprises, but can also serve the cause of folly. They are instruments of progress.

This fifth edition of the “Competition and Innovation” conference series will explore the relationship between law and technique, between law and the machine. It will take stock of the changes and responses of law to technical advances and revisit the fears often associated with progress.
