The Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance invites young scholars to attend the 4th Max Planck European Postdoctoral Conference on Tax Law which will be held on 15-16 January 2018 in Munich. The Conference provides postdoctoral researchers in the field of tax law with a platform for presenting and discussing their research projects with peers from all over Europe and to foster the pan-European academic exchange of ideas.
As the success of the three previous Max Planck European Postdoctoral Conferences on Tax Law has shown, there is much to be gained from discussions within an international setting. This is especially true since international developments have an increasing impact on national tax systems: European law limits the tax sovereignty of Member States in cross-border situations; national tax policies are driven by the necessities of international tax competition; globalisation breeds new forms of economic integration challenging traditional rules of international taxation. Tax law research reflects these developments by placing more and more emphasis on the European, on the international and on the comparative perspective.
The Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance solicits proposals for presentations of about 30 minutes from scholars who either hold a doctoral degree or will complete their doctoral studies in the course of 2017, and who are not (yet) full professors. Both work in progress and finalised research may be presented. The presentations should be given in English.
To apply, please send an abstract of no more than 500 words to Caroline Heber by 15 October 2017. Scholars whose proposals are selected for presentation will be notified no later than 31 October 2017. A detailed invitation including the conference program will follow soon thereafter.
The Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance will reimburse the travel and accommodation expenses of the invited conference speakers. All speakers will be invited to the conference dinner on the evening of 15 January 2018.
