Fifth Annual Searle Center Conference on Antitrust Economics and Competition Policy -- Call for Papers 

Antitrust Economics and Competition Policy
Friday, September 21 - Saturday, September 22, 2012
Northwestern University School of Law

The goal of this conference 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. While papers on all topics are welcome, we especially encourage submissions related to the following four topic areas:
• open vs. closed systems
• tying, bundling, and predatory pricing
• price squeezes and other vertical pricing issues
• cloud computing

RESEARCH PROPOSALS: SUBMISSION, REVIEW PROCEDURE AND TIMELINE: Research Proposals should include an abstract (300 words maximum) and c.v.

Proposal Submission Deadline: Research Proposals should be submitted to Derek Gundersen at by May 18, 2012.

Notification Deadline: Research Proposals will be reviewed by a committee. Authors will be notified of the committee's decisions by June 11, 2012.

Discussion Draft Deadline: Authors should plan to submit a paper suitable for distribution to discussants and other conference participants no later than September 4, 2012.
