I am pleased to share the information on this conference organized by the WU Wien:
The preparations for our conference “Recent and Pending Cases at the ECJ in Direct Taxation” which will be held in Vienna from November 21 to 23, 2013 and which will be organized by the Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law at WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business) with friendly support of PwC, are proceeding well.
We are happy to inform you that the detailed programme with all the case numbers, speakers and chairpersons has been placed online, and for registered participants the case law is available for download. We are extremely happy that this year Advocat General Juliane Kokott and Advocat General Melchior Wathelet will honor us with chairing a conference session.
The opening highlight will be the inaugural lecture of Prof. Edoardo Traversa on Nov. 21, 2013 at 17:00 on the topic of “Tax incentives and territoriality: reassessing the ECJ case-law in the light of the principles of federalism and sound tax policy” which will be followed by a panel discussion and cocktail reception on invitation of PwC.
We are happy that very distinguished experts from the countries where the direct tax cases pending at the ECJ are coming from will present these cases, the request for the preliminary ruling and the relevant domestic and European legal background. This will enable us to discuss recent developments in European tax law. In order to have lively and high level discussions, the number of participants is limited. Therefore we want to invite you to apply as soon as possible. Some seats are still left, but not too many. Please find the invitation and the application forms on our website http://www.wu.ac.at/taxlaw .
