To that end, the workshop will include both full drafts and early works in progress.
Those interested in presenting at the conference should send a 500-word abstract to ASIL-Midwest Co-Chair Cindy Buys (email@example.com) by Friday, July 28, 2017. Please also include a sentence about the stage the paper is expected to be in by September (e.g., reasonably complete draft, early work in progress, etc.). Papers may address any International Law topics, and this Call for Submissions is open to everyone in the international legal community. Preference will be given to ASIL members who are also members of the ASIL-Midwest Interest Group. Paper presenters will be asked to circulate their drafts (or a summary of the project if it’s early stage) to workshop attendees no later than September 1, 2017.
Those interested in serving as a commentator for a paper should also send an email to the Co-Chair Cindy Buys by July 28 (firstname.lastname@example.org).

This installment of Write On!, our periodic compilation of calls for papers, includes calls to present at the Hamburg Workshop as follows:
►The Hamburg Workshop will be held from 15 – 16 September 2017 at the University of Hamburg to discuss research projects in international law among peers (e.g. a chapter of a dissertation, a draft of an article, case comments). The workshop brings together promising doctoral students and postdocs with a background in international law and neighboring disciplines. All participants ought to exchange ideas and arguments to inspire each other and advance their research. Public international law and common sense will serve as a shared basis that will result in discovering parallel developments and similar issues in different fields of international law. For more details click here.
International Law Weekend 2017 will take place from October 19-21 in New York City, at the Association of the Bar of New York City and at Fordham Law School.

The Asian Society of International Law’s Interest Group on International Law in Domestic Courts has issued a call for papers for a workshop to be held on 24 August 2017 at Yonsei University, Seoul, South Korea.
The workshop will be held on the occasion of the Sixth Biennial Conference of the Asian Society of International Law (which takes place on 25-26 August). The Interest Group will organize a half-day workshop on the ways Asian courts invoke, interpret and apply international law. For decades, judiciaries across Asia have turned to international treaties, and customary international law, to resolve disputes between private actors on the one hand, and between individuals and the states on the other. Despite this widespread practice, insufficient attention has been paid to the Asian countries’ reception of international law. We hope to use this opportunity to spur scholarly reflection on state practice from any Asian jurisdiction.
Participants may wish to address the following topics:
► interpretive methods used by courts to enforce obligations under international human rights treaties;
► why courts enforce (or refuse) arbitral awards under the New York Convention;
► direct and indirect applications of the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods;
► the rights of prisoners of war under the Geneva and Hague Conventions, or other sources of international humanitarian law;
► courts’ citation to reports, recommendations and comments issued by treaty-monitoring bodies and international organizations; and
► invocation of unincorporated treaties.
This is by no means an exhaustive list; interested participants are encouraged to reflect on these, and other, topics that would fall within this general category.
Interested researchers and practitioners should send a 500-word abstract and a short bio to the convenors of the IG-ILDC: firstname.lastname@example.org (Machiko Kanetake) and email@example.com (Tim Webster). The deadline is 23 April 2017.
Selected participants will be informed by 15 May 2017. Preference will be given to current members of the Asian Society of International Law. Each participant must submit a short paper (5-10 pages) by 15 August 2017 for distribution to the other participants. Panelists will be expected to cover their own travel and lodging costs.
