IIPF Annual Congress 2017

73rd Annual Congress of the International Institute of Public Finance 2017 in Tokyo, Japan

The 73rd Annual Congress of the International Institute of Public Finance will be held in Tokyo, Japan on August 18-20, 2017

Prospective contributors, both practitioners and academics, are invited to submit papers.

The theme of the 2017 congress is Fiscal Reform. Growing demographic pressures and increased inequality in developed economics challenge governments' ability to maintain the existing structure of spending. Developing countries need to adjust their tax and spending to meet demands of their growing economies. Recessions put strain on government revenue and lead to higher spending on stimulus and the social safety net. Tax systems need to adjust to the new digital economy that challenges but also creates opportunities for tax administrators.

Globalization requires cooperation between governments to address tax competition, avoidance and evasion. These issues and more will be topics of plenary discussion.

Keynote speeches will be given by:

Alan Auerbach (Professor of Economics and Law, University of California, Berkeley, US),

David Bradbury (Head of the Tax Policy and Statistics Division, OECD, France),

Takatoshi Ito (Professor of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University, US),

Hans-Werner Sinn (Professor of Economics and Public Finance, University of Munich, Germany).

The Local Organizing Committee is chaired by Motohiro Sato (Hitotsubashi University, Japan).

The Scientific Committee is chaired by Wojciech Kopczuk (Columbia University, USA) and Andreas Peichl (ZEW Mannheim, Germany).

Prospective contributors, both practitioners and academics, are invited to submit papers.

While the congress theme is Fiscal Reform, as is traditional at IIPF congresses, papers on any topic within the field of public economics will be considered.

Papers should be submitted through www.conftool.pro/iipf2017.

Deadline for submissions is February 15, 2017.

A Call for Papers and further information is available on the website www.iipf2017.jp .
