Federal Trade Commission Microeconomics Conference Website
The Federal Trade Commission Microeconomics Conference is held annually in November and brings together researchers from universities throughout the world, other government agencies, and other organizations to discuss antitrust, consumer protection, and policy issues that the economists in the FTC’s Bureau of Economics encounter in their work.

The scientific committee for the conference is:
- Meghan Busse (Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management)
- Dennis Carlton (University of Chicago Booth School of Business)
- Kate Ho (Columbia University)
- Robert Porter (Northwestern University)
Organizers: Chris Adams (FTC) and Nathan Wilson (FTC)
