14th CEPR/JIE Conference on Applied Industrial Organization

May 23-25, 2013
Aula Giorgio Prodi, Piazza San Giovanni in Monte 2
Bologna, Italy


The conference series aims to contribute to an analytical understanding of the issues raised by competition and investment, develop empirical protocols and tests of economic models, promote the exchange and the dissemination of results at the forefront of research, and finally, evaluate current competition and regulation policies. It will cover the state of the art in applied and empirical industrial organization.

Glenn Ellison (MIT), Ali Hortacsu (University of Chicago), and Frank Verboven (KU Leuven) have confirmed their participation as keynote speakers.

The conference will be preceded by the 10th CEPR School in Applied Industrial Organization, which will take place on the 22nd of May 2013. The aim of the annual School is to provide a forum for intellectual exchange between PhD students and more experienced researchers in the field of industrial organization. More senior researchers are invited to encourage their students to apply to the School. A separate invitation will be sent for the School in the following weeks.

Papers will be selected by a committee formed by the organisers and the members of the steering committee of the Applied IO Programme.

The steering committee includes Sofronis Clerides (University of Cyprus and CEPR), Peter Davis (Compass Lexecon), Neil Gandal (Tel Aviv University and CEPR), David Genesove (Hebrew University of Jerusalem and CEPR), Margaret Kyle (Toulouse School of Economics and CEPR), Eugenio Miravete (University of Texas at Austin and CEPR), Martin Peitz (University of Toulouse and CEPR), Andrea Prat (LSE and CEPR), Katharine Rockett (University of Essex and CEPR), Frode Steen (Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration and CEPR), Otto Toivanen (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and CEPR), Frank Verboven (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and CEPR) and Nikolaos Vettas (Athens University of Economics & Business and CEPR).

About the Conference Venue

In the heart of the Monumental Complex of San Giovanni in Monte, is located the prestigious Giorgio Prodi lecture hall.
Place of extraordinary beauty and historical art value, the area offers the opportunity to host cultural and educational activities in a unique and smart environment. In what was once the dining-hall of the nunnery of the Lateran Canons, against the backdrop of the beautiful sixteenth-century fresco by Bartolomeo Cesi, it is now possible to organize conferences, workshops and meetings.
