Cambridge, UK 31 May-2 June 2023

 

Organisers:  Christos Genakos (University of Cambridge and CEPR), Tommaso Valletti (Imperial College and CEPR), and Myrto Kalouptsidi (Harvard University and CEPR)

The organisers and steering committee of the 23rd CEPR Conference on Applied Industrial Organization (IO) are writing to invite you to submit a paper or to express your interest in attending the conference. We are planning for the 23rd CEPR/JIE Conference on Applied Industrial Organization to take place physically in Cambridge, UK. The conference will be organised by Christos Genakos (University of Cambridge and CEPR), Tommaso Valletti (Imperial College and CEPR), and Myrto Kalouptsidi (Harvard University and CEPR).

The event will take place in Cambridge, UK on 31 May - 2 June 2023. Financial support for the conference is generously provided CEPR, the Journal of Industrial Economics (JIE) and University of Cambridge, UK. 

 

Conference Details:
The Applied IO conference series seeks to contribute to the understanding of the breadth of topics analysed within the field of Industrial Organization, including demand, productivity, competition in the short- and long-run, innovation, investment, and auctions, to develop empirical protocols and tests of economic models, to promote the exchange and the dissemination of results at the forefront of research, and finally, to evaluate current competition and regulation policies. It will cover the state of the art in both theoretical and empirical Industrial Organization.

Young European researchers are encouraged to apply to the concurrent CEPR/JIE School for Industrial Organization. The goal of the school is to provide a forum for young European researchers in Applied IO to get exposure for and receive feedback on their work. Based on the success of the format last year, researchers accepted to the school will give very short (<10 min) presentations of their work at some point during the conference and participate in poster sessions during an extended lunch period immediately after their presentations.  Given its goals, only young researchers pursuing or having recently (within four years) received a PhD from a European economics programme are eligible. Preference will be given to those students expecting to go on the academic job market in 2023-24, with additional (though lesser) preference given to other applicants according to their time since PhD completion. 

Applicants to the main conference that are eligible and wish to also be considered for the school should indicate such with their submission. In such cases, no separate school application is necessary.  Further details about the school are included in its own Call for Papers available here
