The Review of Network Economics
Vol 2, Issue 4 - December 2003
The present issue of the Review of Network Economics is a symposium on
incentive regulation, which contains nine papers, each of which takes a
different pespective on the topic. We wish to express our thanks to
Professor Dennis Weisman, who was the editor of this issue,
for the outstanding job he has done in putting together this
thought-provoking selection of papers. His own foreword provides an
introduction to the issue and a brief overview of the various papers,
which is followed by a summary and reaction to each of the papers by
Professor Stephen Littlechild.
As part of our ongoing effort to draw attention to conferences that may
be of interest to readers, we wish to draw your attention to an upcoming
conference on Standards and Public Policy. The conference is organized
by the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University
and the Federal Reserve Bank fo Chicago, and to be held on May 13th and
14th, 2004 in Chicago, Illinois.
The organisers invite submissions of case-based, empirical and applied
theoretical papers on topics related to the economics of standards in
network industries. Their particular interest lies in papers with a
policy focus. They plan to select approximately three-quarters of the
conference papers for inclusion in an edited volume on standards and
public policy. If you would like to submit a paper, email a detailed
abstract or completed paper to Shane Greenstein
or Victor Stango.
The deadline for submissions is January 30, 2004.
Co-editors: John Panzar and Julian Wright
