Again this year, the Industrial Organization Society is pleased to award the following two prizes which include an honorarium of $2,500. To be considered for one of the prizes, completed papers must be uploaded to the conference web site by January 31, 2023. 
The 15th annual University of Florida Robert F. Lanzillotti Prize will be awarded for the best paper in antitrust economics.·        
The 15th annual University of Florida Public Utility Research Center Prize will be awarded for the best paper in regulatory economics. 

RISING STAR SESSIONS: The Rising Star sessions showcase the best graduate student research in industrial organization, and provide emerging scholars with both heightened visibility and expert feedback on their research. Session chairs and discussants are drawn from established Industrial Organization scholars, and many of the presenters in Rising Star sessions develop long-standing professional relationships with their session participants. To ensure we give student work consideration for these prestigious sessions, all graduate student submissions must go through the Rising Stars Area on the submission portal. Papers that are not selected for a Rising Star session will be considered for inclusion in a general session at the IIOC. SPONSORED SESSIONS: This year there will be several sessions devoted to frontier topics that are jointly selected by the IOS Board and a company working on issues related to Industrial Organization. You may apply directly to present in one of these sessions, but all conference submissions related to these topics will be considered for inclusion in these sessions. Papers will be independently selected by the Program Committee.
