Call for Papers: Economic Governance of Data-Driven Markets
The Tilburg Law and Economics Center (TILEC) and the Governance and Regulation Chair (GovReg) at University Paris-Dauphine, PSL Research University will organize a two-day Workshop on "Economic Governance of Data-driven Markets" (http://www.tilburguniversity.edu/research/institutes-and-research-groups...) at Tilburg University, the Netherlands, on October 12 and 13, 2017.
We aim to discuss the specific problems that arise on markets and in political and legal systems through the ongoing process of datafication. Once such a problem and the optimal response/intervention are identified, the enforcement institution must be endogenized: How should data-driven markets or political systems be governed? By national or supranational regulation (public ordering)? Or by self-governance of industry-participants in some form (private ordering)? Scholars from various backgrounds, including institutional economics, industrial organization, and law & economics - and extending to neighboring disciplines such as political science, management, and information science will meet in a pleasant atmosphere to advance our knowledge.
The deadline for submissions is May 14, 2017. Papers should be submitted in PDF format to TILECgovernance@uvt.nl. Long abstracts are accepted but full papers are preferred. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by June 30, 2017.
Unless otherwise mentioned with the submission, it is understood that the author submitting a paper is also the presenter and present throughout the workshop. Submitters should indicate whether they want their paper to be considered for a poster session. If accepted for a poster session, authors are responsible themselves for producing their poster. Speakers might be asked to discuss another paper. Completed drafts of accepted papers are due by September 30, 2017, and will be made available for download on the conference website.
FEE AND REIMBURSEMENT POLICY: There is no conference fee. The hosting organizations will cover the accommodation and travel expenses of speakers in the regular sessions (not in the poster session) and the accommodation expenses of discussants.
