Australasian Tax Teachers Association’s 2015 Conference

Hosted by the Adelaide Law School
The University of Adelaide
Adelaide, South Australia 19-21 January 2015

In 2015 the University of Adelaide will host the Australasian Teachers Association’s (ATTA’s) annual conference.  The conference will run from Monday, 19 January to Wednesday, 21 January.

The theme of the conference is: Tax: ‘It’s time’ for change and papers are invited to be submitted that explore the way that tax reform can be successfully achieved so that Australia’s tax and transfer system is well positioned for the opportunities and significant policy challenges of the decades ahead.  Papers on this theme are strongly encouraged; although the submission of papers on any aspect of taxation is welcome.  Also, papers that explore the scholarship of tax teaching and learning are invited.  Current PhD students are encouraged to submit an abstract as there will be special mentoring workshops for them.

The program will include a mix of keynote presentations and papers by participants.

The confirmed keynote speakers are:

Tuesday, 20 January
Justice Richard Edmonds of the Federal Court in Sydney, Second Commissioner Andrew Mills of the Australian Taxation Office, and Robert Jeremenko the Senior Tax Counsel of The Tax Institute.

Wednesday, 21 January
Justice Anthony Besanko of the Federal Court in Adelaide, Scott Bryant Partner and Head of Legal and Tax, PricewaterhouseCoopers Adelaide (and the firm’s immediate past Managing Partner), and Professor Gordon Cooper, Adjunct Professor at the School of Taxation & Business Law at the University of NSW who will deliver the Patron’s Address.

In addition, Alice McCleary, Independent Professional Company Director and a past National President of the Tax Institute will deliver a speech at the conference dinner.
