IFA Poster programma

The IFA has initiated a so-called €œPoster Programme€ to attract young students to international taxation. The programme is open to a maximum of ten students graduating in international taxation who are writing a thesis on a purely theoretical or more practical subject. IFA is giving them the possibility:

  • to attend the Congress free of registration fee, but they are to bear their own travel and accommodation expenses;
  • to prepare a poster, indicating the main issues and parts of their thesis, which they will expose in the Congress premises near the various book exhibitors;
  • to discuss with interested Congress participants the issues of their thesis, exchanging their views with internationally recognised academics and professionals and other experts.

This initiative clearly aims at introducing young people to the IFA network. Therefore, IFA expects them to become acquainted with the organisation and procedures of the Association, so that they will be able to take active part in IFA's work in the future. We imagine that interest may exist for students living not too far from the Congress Venue. However, we would invite anyone willing to take part in the programme to submit an application accompanied by a brief outline describing the scope of the thesis, on the basis of which the selection will be made.

If you are a student currently writing your thesis and if you are interested in taking part in the Poster Programme during the forthcoming IFA Congress, which will be held in Madrid, Spain from 25-30 September 2016, please supply the IFA General Secretariat with:

  • a brief outline of some 2-3 pages of your dissertation,
  • a c.v.; and
  • one or more letters of recommendation, preferably by a professor/doctor of the university or institute who ideally is also an IFA member.

 The closing date for the (first) selection of candidates is 31 March 2016. The address details of the IFA General Secretariat are:
