Oligo Society

The Oligo Society is a circle of economists interested in the game-theoretic analysis of competition and related topics in microeconomic theory. Topics of particular interest include industrial organization, contests, and auctions. The Oligo workshop series started in 2013. Since then, the organizing committee has steadily grown by electing local organizers into the committee. The Oligo Society is organized as a not-for-profit association ("Verein") under Swiss law. (Bylaws of the Oligo Society) The Oligo Society organizes one workshop each year, usually in early June. If you are interested in local organization of a future workshop, please contact any member of the scientific committee.
