The International Institute of Public Finance (IIPF) is the world organization of public finance economists and has over 750 members from over 50 countries. In an increasingly specialized academic field, the IIPF seeks to generate intellectual interchanges among public finance experts.
The Institute’s annual congress is the main forum for its activities, which include organizing academic events, promoting the exchange of knowledge between academics and practitioners of all nationalities, and awarding prizes for outstanding academic achievements.
The congress also provides an opportunity for the IIPF governing bodies to convene (Board of Management, General Assembly of Members). The IIPF is currently administered by an Executive Committee consisting of President Joel Slemrod (University of Michigan, US) and two Vice Presidents, Clemens Fuest (Ifo Institute and University of Munich, Germany) and Monika Bütler (University of St. Gallen, Switzerland). The legal and administrative seat of the non-profit organization IIPF is in Munich, Germany.
Further information is available at www.iipf.org.
Regarding paper submission, members of the IIPF (in the congress year 2017) are not required to pay a submission fee for the Annual Congress. Non-members must pay a submission fee of €20.
Authors of accepted papers are required to become members of the IIPF and to confirm their presentation by registering before June 1, 2017.
Payment of the annual IIPF membership fee also ensures a reduced registration rate.
