Conference Website:

We hope that a format will be possible in which at least some of the participants will physically come to Berlin, but we are also preparing technically so that virtual participation will allow intellectual interaction between the participants. 

We invite theoretical, experimental, and empirical work on any aspect of conflict/contests. This includes work from disciplines other than economics, including psychology, management, sports, biology, computer science etc. 

Please submit your paper, or an extended abstract (two pages) along with a short abstract of no more than 50 words to by 10 May 2021.

The committee of organizers is:

Subhasish M. Chowdhury, University of Bath

Kai A. Konrad, MPI for Tax Law and Public Finance

The Keynote Speaker for this event is:

Professor (em.) Vicky Bier, University of Wisconsin
