The Department of Public Law and Tax Law of the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration has already organised two very successful series of High Level Scientific Conferences within the 5th Framework Programme of the European Commission. Presently, there is a need to continue the process that has been started but could not be finished because of the large range of ideas and questions raised in the past, since the two subject areas are still of great importance for the development of tax law within the enlarged European Union.
The ideal platform for achieving this goal is the organisation of a conference focusing on the dissemination of the scientific output of the past conferences. The event shall take place from 12 - 15 October 2006. Moreover, the project has a considerable networking dimension. At the conference, scientific experts from all over 'old' and 'new' Europe will come together and exchange their ideas. Also, potentials for future co-operations in Europe-wide research projects might be developed. Accordingly, the intended conference will make the research results of the preceding projects, which are of considerable value throughout Europe, accessible to as many people as possible.
The planned event shall function as an international platform for the exchange of opinions and for providing tax experts with information that cannot easily be obtained, especially not on a Europe-wide level. Besides, the project is aimed at revealing future trends and developments in international tax law and tax treaty practice and at strengthening the integration of the European Union. The project will be coordinated by Prof. Josef Schuch, Chair of Public Law and Tax Law of the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration. Following the conference, the outcome of the project will be published in a book. Thus, an impact all over Europe, especially for those who were not able to participate themselves, will be ensured.
