This conference is the first ever conference for the Next
Generation of Antitrust Scholars. Much
has changed in both the law and economic theory of antitrust in the past 30
years. The purpose of this event is to
convene a conference of the next generation of antitrust law professors (people
who started their teaching career in or after 2000) and provide them an opportunity
to present their latest research. Senior
antitrust scholars and practitioners in the field will comment on the papers.
Submissions are open to professors around the world. Papers will be accepted based upon the highest scores given to the 1,000-2,000 word abstract or full article submitted. Speakers who are accepted by an abstract must have a completed draft of the paper ready two weeks before the conference.
The conference organizers will not pay for any expenses for speakers or discussants. Refreshments at the conference, however, will be provided free of charge.
The deadline for submissions is November 20, 2009. Participants will be notified by November 30, 2009.
November 6 UPDATE: A number of people have asked - is this limited to law professors or can economics professors also submit papers. The answer is this is antitrust - economists are not just welcomed but encouraged.
