|Description:||ZEW Conference on the Quantitative Analysis in Competition Assessments - Centre for European Economic Research|
|Location:||Mannheim, ZEW, Germany|
|Subject:||The conference aims to discuss the recent developments in the empirical techniques - covering simple as well as most advanced and state-of-the-art quantitative techniques - and their practical application in competition casework and market studies/sector inquiries. A non-exhaustive list of such empirical approaches comprises: - Price Tests - Price-Concentration Analysis - SSNIP Advances - Demand Estimation - Structural Models - Merger Simulations - Empirical Analysis of Unilateral and Coordinated Effects - Econometric Models to Measure Market Power - Quantitative Analysis of Tacit (implicit) Collusion - Market Screening Techniques/Predicting Cartels - Empirical Analysis of Effects of Vertical Restraints - Empirical Tests to Determine Predatory Pricing - Quantification of Damages to Consumers - Bidding Studies, etc. High-quality competition analysis of antitrust cases envisages empirical analysis of market data within a robust theoretical framework, complemented with qualitative arguments. We especially welcome any contributions that illustrate the application of industrial economics, game theory and econometrics to applied competition analysis of antitrust cases and that combine both the development of a theoretical model and its empirical estimation. Papers with empirical advances in the field of the ex-post evaluation of competition policy are also welcome. [gemäß den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]|
