The 2nd Berlin-Vallendar Conference on Tax Research will be held on July 21–22, 2016 at Freie Universität Berlin. The conference is organized jointly by Frank Hechtner, Freie Universität Berlin and Martin Jacob, WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management, Vallendar.
The conference provides international tax researchers an opportunity to present and discuss their current projects. We welcome all papers, in particular from young scholars, in the broad area of taxation. There is no limitation to certain research methods. Topics can, for example, cover but are not limited to tax related issues such as taxes in business decisions, tax avoidance and tax risk, tax planning, profit shifting, tax compliance and enforcement, and the role of taxes in financial accounting and financial markets.
A limited number of selected papers will be presented. Presenters will benefit from a formal discussant and general audience feedback. We also welcome interested participants who do not present a paper. Please keep in mind that the number of attendees is limited. Thanks to financial support from PricewaterhouseCoopers, there is no conference fee for attending and local expenses will be partially covered.
You will find impressions from our last conference as well as a list of the presented papers on our website (www.wiwiss.fu-berlin.de/taxberlin2015/). Please feel free to contact the organizers Frank Hechtner (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Martin Jacob (email@example.com) for further information. We look forward to seeing you in Berlin!
