Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Dates not to miss

Now that we are firmly in Autumn time, dates for major events start to pile up. We thought it would be a good idea to remind you of some of the major ones ahead of us. Time to plan, as they say.

Under the leadership of the wonderful Michal Gal, ASCOLA goes from strength to strength. All competition law scholars are grateful to her. The 2020 edition of the ASCOLA conference will take place in beautiful Porto. Academics: you have until late January to submit your papers or extended abstracts. More info can be found here.

Denis Waelbroeck and Jean-Francois Bellis run the venerable Mardis de la concurrence. I am proud to have presented on selective distribution last year. This year’s programme of events is truly outsdanding (see here). It features, inter alia, Carles Esteva, Pierre Regibeau, Marc van der Woude, Fernando Castillo, as well as a lawyer that goes by the name of Alfonso Lamadrid. Not to be missed if in Brussels!

A more recent venture, undertaken by UCL and White & Case, promises to become another classic in the Brussels scene. This year it is organised by Deni Mantzari and Makis Komninos and will take place on 21 November. You can find the programme here.

And last, but not least (albeit perhaps more urgent): the College of Europe alumni in competition law organises tomorrow an event on digital competition (see here). The event will be moderated by Aleksandra Boutin and will have Thomas Graf, Silke Heinz and Thomas Kramler as its speakers. You can still make it!
