The Doctoral Program in International Business Taxation at WU Vienna (DIBT) is happy to announce the 6th Vienna Doctoral Consortium in Taxation, which will be held at WU Vienna on October 23 and 24, 2023. The consortium offers an excellent opportunity for PhD-students and Post-Doctoral researchers to discuss current research and to receive constructive feedback on their research projects.

Submitted papers shall have a strong focus on international business taxation and approach research questions from a management / accounting perspective. In particular, this includes topics of supra-national relevance.

Each paper session involves 15 minutes of presentation, followed by 45 minutes discussion through a pre-assigned discussant and through open discussion. The entire Doctoral Consortium will be held in English.

The Doctoral Consortium will be held in person. Participation fees of 100 Euros will be charged to cover catering and meals. An invoice will be sent by email after participants’ registration. Please note that funding is not available, participants are expected to cover their travel expenses. Doctoral students will receive a certificate on 6 ECTS which may be credited at their home institution.

Submission Guidelines:

 The submission shall include a cover page and a research proposal. The cover page shall include the title of the paper and a list of all (co)-authors together with their affiliation. The research proposal shall consist of an extended abstract of roughly one or two pages including: Motivation, Research Question(s), Method, Research Gap and Contribution. Additionally, doctoral students are encouraged to submit a (preliminary) full paper accompanying their research proposal, if available. Please, submit via e-mail to xixi.zhang@wu.ac.at. The full paper must be available in time.


In the past, the discussion has benefitted considerably from active participation of senior faculty. We therefore encourage supervisors to also participate in the Doctoral Consortium.
