The theme of the conference is “Competition and Regulation in the Information Age”, which particularly addresses the challenges that are brought about by the blurring between communications and information services. There will be a plenary session as well as an industry and policy panel on this issue. Contributed panel sessions and papers are welcomed on the full range of topics covered by the ITS. A best student paper prize will be awarded and the conference is followed by a Ph.D. seminar
The conference is being co-organised by ITS and the University of Passau, Faculty of Business Administration and Economics
