We are writing to invite you to submit a paper to the annual symposium of the Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation. The symposium will take place at the Saïd Business School in Oxford, from Tuesday 24 – Friday 27 June, 2014. As ever, we welcome research on any topics related to business taxation in its broadest sense, including papers from economics, law and other disciplines, as well as interdisciplinary contributions.
Submissions can be either completed but unpublished papers or extended abstracts (at least 2 pages) of work in progress that will be completed by the date of the conference. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2014 and papers should be submitted using the electronic form.
Selections will be completed, and invitations extended, by March 15, 2014.
The programme will follow that of previous years; there will be a limited number of formal presentations, and plenty of time for informal interaction and private work, together with social events. This year we will also have two keynote presentations by Joel Slemrod (University of Michigan) and David Weisbach (University of Chicago).
Please forward this call to young scholars working in the area of business taxation. The author of the best paper presented by a young scholar will be awarded a prize. The only submission criterion for this section is that all authors of a paper must have gained their PhD within the last three years.
This year’s symposium convenor is John Vella. Please contact John if you have any questions about the academic content of the symposium. If you have any questions regarding the logistics, please contact Clare.
Accommodation will be organised for presenters and discussants, and the costs of accommodation, meals and social events will be met by the Centre. We have limited funds to reimburse travel costs, and we would like to target our support to participants who are unlikely to be able to attend without such help. If you need financial assistance with travel costs, then please make this known to us on the ‘additional info/comments’ section when you submit your paper/abstract.
We look forward to receiving your submissions and welcoming you to another successful symposium.
Michael Devereux and John Vella
