Call For Papers - Antitrust Economics and Competition Policy

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

     Northwestern University School of Law
     Searle Center on Law, Regulation, and Economic Growth

     CALL FOR PAPERS
     "ANTITRUST ECONOMICS AND COMPETITION POLICY"
    
     September 26th & 27th, 2008
    
    
     The Searle Center on Law, Regulation, and Economic Growth
     is issuing a call for original research papers to be
     presented at a Research Symposium on Antitrust Economics
     and Competition Policy at Northwestern University School of
     Law. The Symposium will run from 9:00 AM on Friday,
     September 26th to 12:30 PM on Saturday, September 27th. 
     The Symposium is co-sponsored by the Center for the Study
     of Industrial Organization at Northwestern University.
    
     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:
