The use of complex auctions formats in spectrum auctions has increased markedly over the last couple of years. Especially the Combinatorial Clock Auction (CCA) format has become popular among telecom regulators and has already been used to allocate spectrum in the UK, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and Denmark with further CCAs planned in Ireland, Australia and Canada. In conjunction with the spectrum management newsletter PolicyTracker, Copenhagen Economics is now organising a two-day training course on CCAs. The course is targeted at participants in upcoming CCAs, regulators planning spectrum release as well as operators and spectrum managers assessing auctions formats. At the course, participants will become familiarised with the practice of CCA auctions enabling regulators to make the best auction format choices and operators to choose the best bidding strategies. The training will have a hands-on approach revolving around a number of mock auctions based on actual recent CCA auctions. The course will take place in Brussels on 11-12 September 2012.
