Abstract
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.

Daniel, I think there is a typo on your post, instead of "Many of the best of the Next Generation of Antitrust law professors will be presenting their works" it should say "Many of the best of the Next Generation of NORTH AMERICAN Antitrust law professors will be presenting their works".....
