The objective of the conference is to discuss recent scientific contributions to the economics of information and communication technologies (ICT) and the economics of ICT industries. Theoretical, empirical and policy-oriented contributions are welcome.

In collaboration with ZEW’s Sponsors’ Association of Science and Practice, we are pleased to organise an additional workshop for PhD students this year on 6 July. Jointly with this year’s sponsor, SAP, they will select the most outstanding contribution for the Heinz König Young Scholar Award. The award is endowed with EUR 5,000 and also offers the possibility of a three-month residential fellowship at ZEW including travel and accommodation costs.
