Doctoral Colloquium on the afternoon of 4 September 2018

As in previous years, the Conference will include a Doctoral Colloquium to provide an opportunity for PhD students and early career researchers to present their work.

Tax Education Day on 5 September 2018

A new feature for the conference in 2018 will be a day on tax education. This will address both University level teaching of taxation and the teaching of tax to professional students. Participants are invited to present details of interesting and innovative ways they are undertaking tax teaching for part of the day. Invited speakers will fill other parts of the day to provide a practical and (we hope) inspiring day suitable for anyone involved in tax education.
