Call for Papers: CLaSF Workshop on ‘Competition Law and Pricing Mechanisms’

Competition Law Scholars Forum

The Competition Law Scholars Forum (CLaSF) will be running a workshop on 1st May 2014 at the offices of Bird & Bird in London. The subject of the workshop will be the broad theme of Competition Law and Pricing Mechanisms. We invite abstract paper proposals from researchers, scholars, practitioners and policy-makers in relation to any issue within this broad theme.  We welcome theoretical, economics-driven, practice-based or policy focused papers, and we are interested in receiving abstracts for papers which may be focused on perspectives or experience at national, regional (eg EU), or international levels, or a combination.

In particular, suggestions are invited in relation to the following matters:

  • Cartel pricing mechanisms, including the operation of the cartel;
  • Vertical resale price maintenance and competition law;
  • Hub and spoke price collusion;
  • Predatory pricing theory and practice;
  • Rebates, discounts and other commercially strategic/potentially abusive strategies;
  • The Intel case
  • The EU Commission’s rhetoric and practice following the 2009 Guidelines on Enforcement priorities
  • The authorities’/courts’ approaches to excessive and/or discriminatory pricing

Papers are invited from researchers, scholars, regulators and practitioners on any of these issues or other topics which fall generally within the broad theme of Competition Law and Pricing Mechanisms.

The Deadline for Abstract submissions is 21 February 2014. The full Call can be found at:

The Workshop will be followed by Drinks and Dinner.
