Doctoral Conference 2021

Call for Papers: now closed

PhD students and early careers resarchers were invited to submit a paper for the annual Doctoral Conference, to be held by the Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation on Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 September 2021. Due to the uncertainty regarding ongoing travel restrictions, we will be holding the conference online again this year, with 4 papers to be presented on each day.

We welcomed submissions on any topics related to business taxation in its broadest sense, including papers from economics, law, accounting and other disciplines, as well as interdisciplinary contributions. Preference is given to current PhD students, but we also encourage early careers researchers within three years of completing their PhD to submit their papers.

The conference offers presenters the opportunity to receive feedback in a friendly environment from Michael Devereux, Centre Director, and other leading academics and CBT researchers.

There will be a Best Paper Award with a prize of £500.

The deadline submissions has now passed. Successful submissions will be announced here shortly.

This year’s Doctoral Conference convenors are Alice Pirlot and Martin Simmler. Please contact Alice or Martin if you have any questions about the academic content of the meeting. If you have any questions regarding the logistics, please contact our Events team.
