The third edition of the Annual MannheimTaxation Conference will take place in Mannheim (Germany) on October 4-5, 2016. We invite submissions on any topics broadly related to tax research, including papers from economics, law, political science, other disciplines, and interdisciplinary contributions. The conference focuses particularly on applied and empirical papers related to business taxation, tax avoidance and evasion, behavioural responses to taxation, tax harmonization in the European Union, political economy of taxation, international taxation, tax law, and taxation of the financial sector.

We are very happy to announce that Dhammika Dharmapala (University of Chicago) will be giving a keynote speech. The conference is organised by the Leibniz ScienceCampus "MannheimTaxation", which is a joint initiative of the University of Mannheim and the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW). It aims to foster high-quality research in the broad field of taxation and provides a platform to bring together researchers from various tax disciplines.
