The Review of Network Economics

Vol 2, Issue 4 - December 2003 

Editors' foreword
  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
