Press Release – Digital conference “The Promise of Computational Competition Law and Economics

Subject: Digital conference “The Promise of Computational Competition Law and Economics

The Hellenic Competition Commission and the BRICS Competition Law and Policy Centre are co-organising an international online Conference on “The Promise of Computational Competition Law and Economics”, supported by the Journal of Competition Law and Economics.

Gathering legal and economic experts, as well as members of Competition Authorities, the aim of this event will be to discuss policy and legal issues arising from the increasing use of computational tools in competition law enforcement and to examine the prospects of applying Artificial Intelligence techniques in this field, in the future. 

Competition Authorities around the world are encountered with issues arising from an ever more complex economy and increasingly rely on the use of computational techniques (Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, machine/ deep learning) in enforcing competition law. The Conference will address the challenges encountered by competition authorities in integrating such techniques and advanced learning in the legal framework of competition law enforcement, examining in particular the legal requirements with regard to the standard of proof, procedural rights and investigation procedures.

Based on computational techniques, software screening tools for investigating collusive conduct have been applied by several Competition Authorities. Important efforts have also been made to develop operational screening tools for other anticompetitive practices, such as excessive and exclusionary pricing. Experts in the development of computational antitrust tools will contribute their valuable insights and experiences on the matter.

Joining the Conference are prominent academics from around the world, key experts and members of national Competition Authorities. 

The Conference will take place on Monday the 24th of May, from 15:00 – 18:00 (CET) and will be broadcasted (Live Streaming) from the Hellenic Competition Commission’s webpage at https://www.epant.gr/en/computational. The Programme can be found here.
