Amsterdam, The Netherlands
In 2013, for the 11th time, IBFD will organize its Research Students Meeting for doctoral students. For the 2nd time around a parallel meeting for Early Career Scholars will take place.
The purpose of these meetings is to provide doctoral students and early career scholars with an opportunity to discuss their current research projects with leading academic experts and a select circle of colleagues. All participants will benefit from tailored coaching provided by our panels of selected experts, as well as from the input given by their fellow researchers, coming from all around the world. Our aim is to provide researchers with an adequate forum to further develop their projects that, ultimately, will lead to the enhancement of research in the tax field.
Venue and Dates
The meetings will take place at the IBFD Head Office in Amsterdam on Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 June from 9:00 until 18:00.
Who should attend?
The Doctoral Students Meeting is intended for students working on a doctoral thesis in the fields of international, European or comparative tax law.
Early Career Scholars Meeting

In addition to the presentations by the participants and panel-led discussions, the programme will contain several special methodological and informative sessions on useful topics for doctoral students and early career scholars.
The programme will be designed to include individual research time for participants to make use of the IBFD library and facilities. As is tradition, participants will be invited by IBFD for a social programme including a boat trip through Amsterdam (9 June) and a closing dinner at a local restaurant (11 June).
