Northwestern University School of Law’s Searle Center on Law, Regulation and Economic Growth will be holding a conference on Antitrust Economics and Competition Policy on September 26-27th. From the Call for Papers:
The goal of this Research Symposium is to provide a forum where leading scholars from across the country can gather together with Northwestern’s own distinguished faculty to present and discuss high quality research relevant to antitrust economics and competition policy. Both theoretical and empirical submissions are welcome. Papers in industrial organization or applied microeconomic theory that address issues relevant to antitrust policy are welcome even if they do not directly focus on particular antitrust policy issues or institutions. We hope to involve leading thinkers from the government, non-profit, and private sector, as well as leading academics from economics departments, business schools, law schools and public policy schools. While most of the conference will be devoted to presentation and discussion of original academic research, we also expect to schedule a small number of panels on important current topics or policy issues. If you have questions about the appropriateness of your paper for the symposium, or suggestions for panel subjects, please contact Professor William Rogerson, Research Director, Searle Center Research Project on Competition, Antitrust and Regulation (firstname.lastname@example.org)
NOTE: The deadline for abstracts is April 15, 2008!
