Call For Papers: 77th Annual Congress of the International Institute of Public Finance

Congress of the International Institute of Public Finance 

The 77th Annual Congress of the International Institute of Public Finance will take place in Iceland (or if the situation requires, virtually) from August 18-20, 2021.  This year's theme is "Public Finance in the Era of the COVID-19 Crisis" and will feature keynote addresses from Jérôme Adda, Marianne Bitler, John N. Friedman, and Andrea Weber. Paper submissions from all areas of public finance are welcome.  Learn more from the IIPF 2021 call for papers or from the Congress website. The submission deadline is February 15, 2021. 

With the uncertainty of COVID-19, we cannot yet commit to the conference modality, but we are committed to running an online Congress regardless of the situation and remain hopeful that the situation will evolve favorably for an in-person component.
