[Back to the Top]

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

  Latin American Competition Policy Conference
  Fundação Getulio Vargas
  São Paolo Brazil
  March 21, 2008

We invite the submission of theoretical, empirical, and policy-oriented papers from academics in law and economics on topics related to one of the two conference themes: (i) cartels, and (ii) competition advocacy in Latin America. The primary focus of the conference is on academic research that is country specific or region-wide. Additionally, we intend to organize a reaction session of competition agency officials on these issues.

Authors of accepted papers will receive reimbursement for travel related expenses (hotel, airfare, incidentals). Proceedings of the conference will be published in a book with a major academic publisher. To be eligible for submission, a paper cannot be previously published or accepted for publication. Papers may be submitted in any of the three conference languages: English, Portuguese or Spanish. Final publication of papers will be in English.

The initial deadline for abstracts and papers is September 5, 2007. At this initial date, authors may submit either an abstract or a paper and an abstract. Abstracts should be no more than 1,500 words. An author may submit more than one paper. However, any one person may present only one paper. All submissions will be refereed. Authors of accepted abstracts must submit a paper by February 1, 2008.

We expect to notify authors about acceptances by October 15, 2007.   

The number of accepted papers and the panel subjects will depend on the number, quality, and subject areas of the submitted papers.

Paper and abstract submissions should be sent to [email protected].  The conference website is available at
