Call for Papers
XLI Competition Law Scholars Forum Workshop (CLaSF)
Promoting Fairness, Accessibility, and Sustainability in Digital and
Technology Markets through Competition Law
Friday 5 April, 2023
UMA Law School / Facultad de Derecho de la Universidad de Málaga
Once again, CLASF is launching a new workshop to discuss the purposes of Competition Law. In this new Workshop we will discuss fairness and sustainability as objectives of
Competition Law, especially in relation to the dynamics of digital and tech markets. This is an open topic, where contributions on various subjects can be included.
The key theme here is research recently or currently undertaken by academics
and practitioners which can help to make a significant contribution to our understanding of the goals of competition law of promoting fairness, accessibility, and sustainability, mainly considering the dynamics of digital and technology-related markets.
Against this background, the Competition Law Scholars Forum (CLaSF) 41st workshop invites contributions (abstract paper proposals from researchers, scholars, practitioners, and policymakers) in relation to any issue within this wide subject. 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 (e.g., EU), or international levels, or a combination.
The workshop is organized under the direction of Profs. Eugenio Olmedo-Peralta (University of Málaga) and Barry Rodger (Strathclyde University, Glasgow). It will be hosted by the University of Málaga Law School in combination with the research projects led by the Commercial Law Department. In particular, we would like the seminar to combine the sharing of research findings obtained by researchers in the early stages of their careers with those of more senior researchers. We are planning a live, in-person event only.
The Workshop will consist of a mix of invited speakers and contributions chosen following this call for papers. Any person interested in being considered on the basis of the call for
papers at the workshop is asked to contact the Organizing Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org and to Prof. Barry Rodger at email@example.com An
abstract is required of approximately 500-1,000 words, to be submitted by no later than
2nd February 2024, and decisions on successful submissions will be taken by Friday 16th
Submission of presentation/draft paper is also required a week prior to the workshop. Papers presented at the conference can be submitted to the Competition Law Review editorial board with a view to being published in the Review. Note that the Review is a fully refereed scholarly law journal: submission does not guarantee publication.
