CRESSE has always taken place in late June and early July with physical presence of all the speakers and of the conference and School participants. Because of the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot guarantee the physical materialization of CRESSE in June/July (with the Conference taking place from 2-4 July). CRESSE with physical presence will be postponed to late August / early September (with the Conference taking place from 3-5 September), if there are serious delays in the COVID-19 vaccination rollout in many countries until April 2021.
Specifically, if the situation is such that the great majority of the Confirmed Speakers and contributors to the Special Policy Sessions can attend in person in the first or in the second of the above dates, CRESSE will be organised with physical presence, with an opportunity given to those that cannot attend in person to participate online.
If the situation in many countries prevents the majority of the Confirmed Speakers and contributors to the Special Policy Sessions to attend in person at either of the above dates, selected Conference sessions will be delivered online.
We expect that the Scientific Committee will be able to announce its decision, on how and when the CRESSE 2021 Conference will be held, by the end of April 2021.
CRESSE and CPI are pleased to announce that, starting with the annual 2021 CRESSE Conference, they will collaborate in providing awards to the three best papers, selected among those submitted for presentation at the Conference, by young researchers (researchers that are within ten years from completion of their PhD). Selection will be undertaken by the Scientific Committee of CRESSE. The awards will be made during the annual Conference. The value of each award will be 1500 Euro.
A fourth Award will be given for the Best Paper on the Digital Economy by the Computer and Communications Industry Association (CCIA). The value will be €1,500. The paper finalists will be selected from among those submitted to the CRESSE Scientific Committee and the winning paper will be chosen by CCIA. Please see the rules here for eligibility requirements and submission guidelines.
We welcome submissions of theoretical, policy oriented or empirical papers related to any of the main aspects of Competition Policy (dominance, collusion or mergers) or Sectoral Regulation or to issues of policy implementation and enforcement. Deadline of paper submission: April 30, 2021.
The annual CRESSE Conference is recognized as one of the top conferences in the world in Competition Policy Economics and Law. It offers an unparalleled breadth of academic research in competition and regulation, combined with topical policy discussions and insights into the most recent developments in the main jurisdictions around the world.
An additional award will be given to the most read 2021 CRESSE Antitrust Chronicle paper.
