The call for papers can be found here.

Conference Details:

The Applied IO conference series seeks to contribute to the understanding of the breadth of topics analyzed within the field of Industrial Organization, including demand, productivity, competition in the short- and long-run, innovation, investment, and auctions, to develop empirical protocols and tests of economic models, to promote the exchange and the dissemination of results at the forefront of research, and finally, to evaluate current competition and regulation policies. It will cover the state of the art in both theoretical and empirical Industrial Organization.

Young European researchers are encouraged to apply to the concurrent CEPR/JIE School for Industrial Organization.  The goal of the school is to provide a forum for young European researchers in Applied IO to get exposure for and receive feedback on their work.  Based on the success of the format last year, researchers accepted to the school will give very short (<10 min) presentations of their work at some point during the conference and participate in poster sessions during an extended lunch period immediately after their presentations.  Given its goals, only young researchers pursuing or having recently (within four years) received a PhD from a European economics program are eligible. Preference will be given to those students expecting to go on the academic job market in 2022-23, with additional (though lesser) preference given to other applicants according to their time since PhD completion. 

Applicants to the main conference that are eligible and wish to also be considered for the school should indicate such with their submission. In such cases, no separate school application is necessary.  Further details about the school are included in its own Call for Papers available here.
