Academic Symposium 2021

Call for Papers

We invite you to submit a paper for the fifteenth annual symposium of the Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation. Due to expected travel restrictions, the symposium will take place online again this year, in the same format as 2020. The event will run from 14:00-17:30 (UK time) on Monday 5 July and Tuesday 6 July, with 4 papers presented on each day. As ever, we welcome research on any topics related to business taxation in its broadest sense, including papers from economics, law and other disciplines, as well as interdisciplinary contributions. 

Submissions can either be completed but unpublished papers, or extended abstracts of work in progress (preferably at least two pages) which must be completed in time for the conference. The deadline for submissions is Friday 30 April 2021 and submissions should be made using the electronic form below. 

Papers will be selected and invitations extended in mid May.  

The symposium convenor is John Vella. If you have any questions about the academic content of the symposium, please contact John Vella. For questions regarding the logistics, please contact the events team.
