ATTA annual conference
ATTA’s 26th Annual Conference will be held at Griffith University (South Bank campus) from Monday 20 January to Wednesday 22 January 2014. The theme of the conference is “The Politics of Tax” and papers are invited to be submitted that explore the way that politics has and continues to influence the tax system. Visit the ATTA conference 2014 website.
Papers on this theme are strongly encouraged; although the submission of papers on any aspect of taxation is welcome. Also, papers that explore the scholarship of tax teaching and learning are invited. Current PhD students are encouraged to submit an abstract as there will be special mentoring workshops for them.
Abstracts of no more than 500 words should be emailed to Ms Renata Steenland at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 16th August, 2013.
In the meantime if you have any questions please contact Renata Steenland (email@example.com or phone: +61 7 3735 3930) or visit the ATTA conference 2014 website.
