Current conference

The 28th Annual Tax Research Network Conference

9 – 11 September 2019    University of Central Lancashire, Preston

Call for papers

The call for papers is now open.

Full details are available here

We particularly welcome papers from:

  • PhD students
  • Early Career Researchers
  • tax practitioners or tax teachers who are new to academic research

Please let us have your abstracts by 31 March.

Venue for the Conference

The conference will be hosted by the Lancashire School of Business and Enterprise at the Preston campus of the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).

We will be heading out to the 14th Century Samlesbury Hall for the Conference Dinner.

UCLan will be hosting the annual conference of the Society of Legal Scholars  in the week preceding the TRN conference (3 – 6 September).  We understand that SLS will schedule their tax stream for the end of that week. We hope that many of you will be able to attend both events.

Preston is located next to the M6 motorway and its station lies on the West Coast Mainline with direct services to Manchester Airport, London, Birmingham, Glasgow and Edinburgh. UCLan’s campus is a short walk from the station.

Tax Education Day on Wednesday 11 September 2019

We will be building on the success of the Education Day at our 2018 Birmingham conference and are putting together a programme which will be of value to tax educators as well as researchers and scholars.


Further information

We will update this page as the more detailed arrangements are finalised.

In the meantime if you have any suggestions or questions about the Conference or what else to do while you are in Lancashire, do please email the organisers at UCLan: David Massey or Debbie Wood
