Call for papers: Researching Current Issues in Global Competition Law and Policy

Time: 9:00am
Venue: Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT), London, United Kingdom

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Competition Law and Policy (ICC) is pleased to announce that its high-level Annual International PhD Conference 2017 will be hosted at the UK Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) in London on Friday 24 March 2017.

The Conference has been named after the ICC’s late affiliated member and chairperson of the UK Competition Appeal Tribunal, Ms Marion Simmons QC and will provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and fruitful debate between doctoral research students who are engaged in researching current issues in the field of competition law and policy. The conference offers an excellent opportunity for interaction between researchers from around the world under the guidance of senior members of the competition law community globally. It also presents a unique opportunity for research students to engage in a productive debate, meet fellow research students from around the world and receive fruitful feedback on their thoughts and ideas.

Expressions of interest to present a paper at the conference are welcomed from doctoral candidates currently conducting research in the field of competition law and policy. We welcome presentations on any topic of competition law and policy.

Those interested in presenting are asked to email a title and abstract of up to 1000 words of their paper to:

Only papers demonstrating research and original thinking of the highest quality will be selected. We discourage submission of papers giving a general ‘overview’ of a thesis but would strongly welcome those dealing with specific set of issues or topic.

Please send your abstract by 15 February 2017. Final decisions will be made on 25 February 2017. Decisions will be communicated via email on that date with an announcement made on the ICC’s website listing the names of successful candidates.

Papers selected and presented at the event will – if they are of high quality and meet the relevant requirements – be considered for publication in the ICC’s Global Antitrust Review.

Confidential discussions with the ICC members of staff regarding possible submissions are welcome. Please send an email to:
