This year The 9th edition of the Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures (Florence 25-26th June 2020) will focus on ‘Sector Coupling: How to regulate convergence?’
The Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures involves the four areas of the Florence School of Regulation, coordinated by FSR Transport. It takes an interdisciplinary look at the most recent developments and future challenges for the network industries, covering energy, transport, water and communication sectors.
We look for contributions that link different infrastructure sectors, especially in terms of regulating interfaces between the different sectors, as well as regulating more integrated and converging sectors.
Contributions utilising multidisciplinary, as well as interdisciplinary approaches to regulation, are welcome. Papers linking academia and practice, as well as policy research papers are particularly encouraged.
Interested participants can submit their abstract by 14th February. The best papers are published in the Journal Competition and Regulation in Network Industries (SAGE), whose editor-in-chief is Prof. Matthias Finger.
The conference is intended for academics such as PhD students, PostDocs and Assistant/associate/full Professors as well as academically minded practitioners.
