There is no registration fee, but advanced registration for both the Asia Pacific IP Forum and WIPIP is required. 


Join us for the Fourth Asia Pacific IP Forum hosted by the Center for Advanced Study and Research on Innovation Policy (CASRIP) at the University of Washington School of Law. The Forum brings together founding members from UW, UC Berkeley, Waseda University, Hokkaido University, Seoul National University, Renmin University and National Taiwan University, as well as leading Pacific Rim scholars, practitioners, judges and policymakers, to discuss comparative transnational IP law in practice.

We have scheduled this year’s Asia Pacific Forum immediately preceding the Works-in-Progress Intellectual Property (WIPIP) Colloquium that CASRIP is also hosting. At WIPIP, U.S. IP academics meet to present their academic works-in-progress and receive early feedback from their colleagues. It is considered one of the top annual IP works in progress events in the U.S. Accordingly, the theme for the combined conference and colloquium is “East Meets West.”

“East Meet West” presents a unique opportunity for U.S. IP academics and Asian IP leaders to meet and discuss pressing IP topics of the day.

Detailed information about WIPIP is available on the Colloquium website:  

Asia Pacific Forum participants interested in attending WIPIP need to register via the WIPIP website.
