The Tax Research Network is the learned society for tax researchers, practitioner and policy makers in the UK, and has around 350 members from across the world. On the TRN website you can learn more about our activities (http://www.trn.org.uk).
The TRN’s 22nd annual conference will be held on 3-4 September 2013 at the University of Exeter, Devon, hosted by the Business School (http://business-school.exeter.ac.uk). Exeter is situated in one of the most beautiful counties in England. The conference will meet in the Business School, and excellent quality accommodation at is available, adjacent to the venue. (see http://www.exeter.ac.uk/eventexeter/ourvenues/hollandhall/).
Over many years the TRN’s annual conference has provided a vital forum for the presentation and discussion of leading edge tax research. The ever-increasing public debate about taxation, as a result of heightened sensitivities following the recession, provides us with an invaluable opportunity to make a contribution based on rigorous research. The conference remains an exceptionally multidisciplinary event and will particularly interest accountants, lawyers, economists, sociologists, historians and a wide variety of other scholars from the social sciences and humanities.
You are cordially invited to submit a paper for this conference. Whilst there is no specific theme, papers which are well grounded theoretically and/or innovative and interesting empirically are particularly sought.
Proposals for papers must be sent to Professor Lynne Oats by 28 February 2013. This should take the form of an extended abstract of between 1500 and 2000 words. You will be notified whether or not your paper is accepted by 31 March 2013. Full versions of accepted papers must be submitted by 31 July 2013. Please do not hesitate to contact Lynne if you have any queries (L.M.Oats@Exeter.ac.uk).
There will be a full registration fee and accommodation charge waiver for one presenter of each paper. The conference will be preceded on 2 September by a workshop for early career researchers and PhD students (details to follow).
We do hope that you will consider submitting an abstract and help to make the 2013 conference a success
