Welcome to the First Online BILETA Conference.
Due to unprecedented circumstances, BILETA Annual Conference (Regulating Transitions in Technology and Law) which was supposed to be held in Tilburg University on 7th and 8th of April 2020 had to be cancelled. We would like to thank the organisers Prof. Eleni Kosta and Dr Leonie Reins, and the events coordinator Ms Femke Abousalama who put so much effort into planning the conference.
We know that a conference is more fun when we all assemble in the same place, make connections and maybe enjoy some socialising. However, we strongly believe that the dissemination of research and knowledge can also happen virtually. We will not get everything right the first time; we are trying to do something which we never thought we would have to do only a few weeks ago, but there is no harm in trying.
Finally, we hope that you and your family and friends are safe and well and will remain so at this very troubling time.
