UPDATE: The organising committee has decided to postpone the summer school due to COVID-19. We are already organising a winter school at the beginning of 2021. Further information will be announced in the next months.
The first edition of the Summer School on “Algorithmic State, Market and Society”(FLOS) will be held in Florence on 13-17 July 2020.
The one-week programme focuses on cutting-edge issues in the field of law and technology focusing especially on automated technologies.
This initiative aims to create a multi-stakeholder environment where scholars, practitioners, students and experts in the field of law, technology and economics can exchange views and opinions.
The idea of FLOS has been conceived within the framework of the research group on “Algorithmic State, Market and Society” which has been launched during the inaugural conference on “Constitutional Challenges in the Algorithmic Society” held at the University of Florence and European University Institute in May 2019.
FLOS aims to give rigorous and comprehensive training in a wide variety of topics on law and algorithms thanks to the collaboration of distinguished scholars and participants. It embraces law, technology and policy and it is open to policy makers, practitioners, judges, scholars and students.
Each day is made of four sessions of one hour and half. Each session deals with different issues in the field of law and algorithms and aims to create the environment for questions and discussions between participants.
FLOS is jointly hosted by the University of Florence (Italy), the European University Institute (Florence, Italy), and Bocconi University (Milan, Italy).
FLOS is coordinated by professors Oreste Pollicino, Giovanni Sartor and Andrea Simoncini and scientifically organised by Erik Longo and Giovanni De Gregorio.
