The 3rd Annual International Conference “Antimonopoly Policy: Science, Practice, Education” (hereinafter - Conference) will take place on December 5-6, 2017. Traditionally, the venue of the Conference is the Skolkovo Innovation Center (Moscow, Russian Federation).

This year the main topic of the Conference is “Digital Economy and Competition Policy”. The digital economy is a modern reality that is rapidly developing and affecting all economic spheres ranging from the markets of explicitly digital goods and extending to classical markets. The current antimonopoly methods for assessing the conjunction of big data and competition law, as well as for considering the risks for antitrust enforcement in digital conditions require rethinking. Within the Plenary Session the leading antimonopoly regulators, as well as highly profiled experts in antitrust procedures will be able to consider the pertinence of the approaches and economic analysis tools used in the era of the new economy.

The main focus of the Conference will be further embraced within individual sessions devoted to such topical issues as detection and suppression of cartels, market definition in recognition of dominant position of economic entities and M&A consideration, tariff regulation, control over public procurement, as well as competition law in the system of modern education and science.

All sessions of the Conference are open for participation of any interested experts and will be supported by simultaneous Russian – English translation.
