2021 Annual Congress of the IIPF | Online

NEWS ON THE CONGRESS
as communicated in the paper notification message on 28 April 2021

Unfortunately, the continued Covid-19 crisis has forced the IIPF to organize the congress in a virtual format. Given the slower than expected vaccine rollout, it is likely that quarantine measures may be in place for individuals who are traveling without a vaccine. Therefore, the IIPF has decided to host the congress online. So, please refrain from making travel arrangements for Reykjavik.

We anticipate that the virtual format will be similar to last year’s Congress. The dates remain fixed from August 18-20, 2021. With respect to the time of day, the Congress will be scheduled on GMT. Further details will be posted to the Congress website.

The Congress registration fee will be 120 Euros for presenters and 80 Euros for (PhD) student presenters. Please note that IIPF requires all congress presenters and participants to be or become members of the association.

Finally, for this year’s Congress we will attempt to include several planned virtual social events. In addition, we will arrange networking sessions where junior scholars are matched to senior scholars in their field. Further details on these events will be forthcoming.

We are very sorry to not welcome you in Reykjavik this year, but we hope to meet you online in August!


The 77th Annual Congress of the International Institute of Public Finance will be held at the University of Iceland, Reykjavík, from August 18 through 20, 2021.

Its Local Organizing Committee is chaired by Prof. Þórólfur Geir Matthíasson and administrated by Pálmi Gautur Sverrisson (both University of Iceland), who already organized the 2020 Annual Congress of the IIPF.

The Scientific Committee is chaired by Prof. David R. Agrawal (University of Kentucky, USA) and Prof. Aline Bütikofer (Norwegian School of Economics, Norway).

The theme of the keynote speeches will be „Public Finance in the Era of the COVID-19 Crisis“; keynote speakers: Jérôme Adda (Bocconi University, Italy), Marianne Bitler (University of California, Davis, USA), John N. Friedman (Brown University, USA) and Andrea Weber (Central European University, Hungary).

Contributed papers on any topic within the field of Public Economics and related disciplines will be considered, as is traditional at IIPF congresses. Submissions will be accepted as from end of December 2020 until 15 February 2021 at midnight (GMT – observe the timezone!).
