Annual conference 2021: 8-10 September, Aston University

We are very pleased to announce the event this year will be a hybrid event – by that we hope that is may be possible for you to attend in person if this is possible for you, and you wish to, but equally, we will look to design he event to enable delegates to fully participate online (as last year).  For the face-to-face bits of the programme we will be hosted this year by Aston Business School at Aston University in Birmingham, UK (see https://www.aston.ac.uk/about ).

We intend to arrange our event as in previous years i.e. with 2 days of research-related papers and plenary speakers (on 8-9 September), and 1 day on tax education (on 10 September). Further details to follow.

All content will be available online, with plans for two pre-recorded streams for viewing (to be broadcast onto screens in Aston University for those present to watch together, or available on Youtube otherwise for everyone registered for the event). We will also run one ‘live’ stream that we plan to broadcast on Youtube also (and capture for subsequent viewing if these can’t be watched in real time).

We very much hope this gives participants the most opportunity to enjoy our events while remaining Covid safe – whether you can attend in person or not this year but also catering for those in different time zones – building on the great success of our > 350 delegate, fully online, event last year.

Please note – there will be a small charge for this year’s event – estimated currently to be approximately £25/day for all delegates (+ an extra charge to cover catering costs for those planning to attend in person). If sponsorship can be secured it is our intention however, to seek to reduce these fees for current Phd students and those in the early years of their careers.
