Fifth Annual MaTax Conference


The fifth edition of the Annual MaTax Conference will take place in Mannheim (Germany) on 4-5 October 2018. We welcome 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. The programmes of previous MaTax conferences: 2016, 2017.

We are very happy to announce that that Prof. Michelle Hanlon (Massachusetts Institute of Technology - Sloan School of Management) and Prof. Wojciech Kopczuk (Columbia University) will be giving the keynote lectures. 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). MaTax aims to foster high-quality research in the broad field of taxation and provides a platform to bring together researchers from various tax disciplines.
