The International Conference on Tax Administration is a prestigious biennial event that brings together leading tax administrators, academics and practitioners from around the globe.

The theme of the 2020 conference will be New Frontiers in Managing Revenue Systems. The conference will explore latest developments in revenue administration in Australia and overseas. These include (but are not limited to):

  • cutting-edge initiatives in service delivery and compliance (digital and data use, tap and go, AI, algorithm, etc);
  • data policy, ethical exploitation, cyber security and new developments in regulating data platforms;
  • globalisation of revenue administration; and
  • tax dispute resolution and new approaches to protect the vulnerable (elderly, impaired, remote, etc).

Your proposal should include the following details:

  • title of the paper;
  • authors(s) brief professional bio and contact details;
  • an abstract of between 200−500 words of the contents of the proposed paper including its findings; and
  • status of the paper (for example, whether it is part of ongoing research or whether it has been previously published, etc).

Proposals should be sent to [email protected] with the subject ‘Tax Admin Conference Call for Papers 2020’ by end of Friday 29 November 2019 (Sydney time).

A Steering Committee will select papers for the conference and will advise you of its decision by mid-December 2019. Full papers will be required to be submitted by early March using the conference template. Selected papers will be published in a special issue of the eJournal of Tax Research (an A-ranked journal in the Australian Business Dean Council’s List of Quality Journals).

The Cedric Sandford Medal will be awarded to the best paper presented at the conference (only for papers submitted on time). The medal is in memory of the late Emeritus Professor Cedric Sandford and is judged by an independent expert panel.
