Major topics include (1) possible conflicts between intellectual property rights and contestable markets, (2) the practicability of the so-called "new economic approach" followed by the European Commission, (3) bundling within platform and system markets, and (4) interoperability issues. Each one-day event is structured into several blocks each of which is introduced by two keynote speakers.
