Welcome to the homepage of the Association of Competition Economics (ACE)

ACE was created in 2003 and brings together competition economists working in government, academia and the private sector. It provides a forum for discussion and debate on policies and specific cases. It is a not-for-profit organization based in Europe and is open to all those interested in the economics of competition.

The main activity of ACE is the annual conference but the Association also encourages local conferences and workshops.

We are pleased to announce that the next ACE conference will be hosted by Mike Walker and Jenny Haydock (CMA) in Edinburgh.

The event is scheduled to take place on the 16th and 17th of November 2023.
