The 76th Annual Congress of the International Institute of Public Finance will be held in Reykjavik, Iceland, from August 19 through 21, 2020.
Its Local Organizing Committee is chaired by Thorolfur Matthiasson (University of Iceland, Reykjavik).
The Scientific Committee is chaired by Mireille Chiroleu Assouline (Paris School of Economics and Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, France) and Marco Runkel (Technical University, Berlin, Germany). The theme of the keynote speeches and panels will be "Public Finance, Natural Resources and Climate Change".
Keynote speeches will be given by Prof. Anna Alberini (University of Maryland, USA), Prof. Ottmar Edenhofer (Technical University Berlin and Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Germany), Dr. Karen Palmer (Senior Fellow and Director of the Future of Power Initiative, USA) and Prof. Rick van der Ploeg (University of Oxford, UK).
Prospective contributors, both practitioners and academics, are invited to submit papers on any topic within the field of public economics. Non-IIPF-members must pay a submission fee of €20.
Submission deadline: 15 February 2020.
Acceptance decisions will be communicated by early April 2020. Authors of accepted papers are required to become members of the IIPF and to confirm their presentation by registering before June 1, 2020. Payment of the annual IIPF membership fee also ensures a reduced registration rate. Authors who wish to be considered for the IIPF Young Economists Award, the IIPF Peggy and Richard Musgrave Prize (both for authors under 40 years), or the International Tax and Public Finance PhD Student Prize should indicate this when submitting papers for presentation. Selected papers from the 2020 IIPF Congress will be published in a special issue of International Tax and Public Finance.
