The Sorbonne Law School Tax Law Department has issued a Call for Papers for the Fourth Junior Tax Scholars Conference on The Instruments of International Tax Law:
International tax law is composed of multiple instruments. Bilateral and multilateral agreements are, nowadays, standard means for the harmonious coexistence of national tax systems. The recent reforms in the USA as well as the current efforts carried by the OECD and the European Union question the value and the future of these instruments as part of the international tax system.
The aim of this conference is to give to junior tax scholars, either Ph.D. candidates or doctors having defended a thesis after September 1, 2014, the opportunity to deliver a twenty minutes presentation of their paper.
A Scientific Committee will examine the submitted papers. Those need to be directly linked to the conference’s topic and written in French or English. The board will heed the originality of the paper’s subject together with the methodology adopted. Papers on Tax law -domestic, EU, international or comparative – will be preferred, however papers presenting original economic aspects will not be, a priori, excluded.
Junior scholars wishing to participate should apply by February 28, 2016 (midnight GMT+1), suggesting an idea for a paper. Their paper’s project should include a detailed explanation of the paper’s content and its structure.
Applicants should enclose their contact information, curriculum vitae, their university affiliation as well as the date of registration in a Ph.D. or of the defense of the thesis. All documents should be sent by e-mail to the Scientific Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The submitted papers are going to be peer-reviewed by the Scientific Committee. Authors of the chosen papers will be contacted by e-mail by the Committee on March 30, 2016.
Final drafts of the selected papers should be sent no later than April 30, 2016.
