The 6th Junior Tax Scholars Conference and the Second Junior Public Finance Scholars Conference will be held by the Tax and Public Finance Department, Pantheon-Sorbonne University, and the Sorbonne Institute of Legal Research on 25 May 2018.

The topics of these conferences are:

Taxation & Big Data under the patronage of Prof. Ludovic AYRAULT

Cloud, BlockChain, data mining, software, digital platforms, algorithms, connected devices… means can be used by economic operators and alter the way economic activity is undertaken and recorded in accounts.  They can also be used by the tax authorities and change the way tax audits are conducted. Domestic and international policies defining the place of creation and the amount of taxable income call for a reconsideration of the assessment and control of direct and indirect taxes and of the future of taxpayers’ rights in the new era.

Funding the European Union under the patronage of Prof Julie BENETTI

The achievement of EU policies, through its powers and purposes, raises expenses. Suggestions for an evolution of the Union’s own resources, including the creation of EU taxes, have to be studied under the light of the evolution of the EU political project. Moreover, the definition and the development of the EU budget are to be reviewed in the current context of planning, evaluation and performance of public policies.

The aim of these conferences is to give to junior tax and public finance scholars, either Ph.D. candidates or doctors having defended a thesis after September 1, 2015, 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 conferences’ topic and written in French or English. The board will heed the originality of the paper’s subject together with the methodology adopted.

Junior scholars wishing to participate should apply by 28 February 2017 (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 defence of the thesis. All documents should be sent by e-mail to the Scientific Committee ([email protected]).

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 as from 9 March 2018.
