1st IBDT/IBFD/DEF-USP Seminar of Researchers in International Taxation
The Instituto Brasileiro de Direito Tributário - IBDT (Brazil), the Department of Economic, Budgetary and Tax Law of the Law School of the University of São Paulo (DEF-USP, Brazil) and IBFD proudly invite the international tax law community to join the 1st IBDT/IBFD/DEF-USP Seminar of Researchers in International Taxation from 14-15 September. 

Given the present situation in the world, the entire Seminar will be held online (Webinar), so that everyone will be able to participate from their home country. The purpose of the Seminar is to provide researchers with an opportunity to discuss their current research projects with leading academics and a selected circle of colleagues. Participants will benefit from tailored coaching provided by our panel of international tax professors, as well as from feedback provided by peers from Brazil and all around the world.  
The official language of all meetings is English. The Seminar will precede the 8th edition of the Congress on International Tax Law, promoted by the IBDT, in partnership with the University of São Paulo, from 16-18 September. Participants of the Seminar will also be invited to attend all sessions of the Congress, free of charge. 
 
 
  
 
One of the key components of the Seminar is the individual coaching sessions. Each participant will present an overview of their research project and the specific details in terms of the findings made and/or obstacles faced. Participants are expected to highlight the most interesting and controversial issues in their research and to introduce some questions and/or propositions specifically conceived to provoke discussion amongst the participants. The time should be equally split between the researcher’s findings so far and the outstanding issues and questions. After each presentation, feedback by the coaches and other experts will be given. The discussions will aim to cover the individual topics presented, as well as the common themes and connections between them.
