The 2022 Australian Workshop on Public Finance is hosted by the Tax and Transfer Policy Institute, Australian National University (ANU) and will be held on Thursday 4 and Friday 5 August 2022 at the Crawford School of Public Policy at the ANU.

This is a call for submission of extended abstracts or full papers. Empirical papers using Australian administrative datasets in any area of public economics, public finance, or tax policy, from any discipline, are welcome. The submission deadline is 17 June 2022. Please send submissions to diane.paul@anu.edu.au. The selection of papers and discussants will be finalised by 1 July 2022. Domestic travel and accommodation will be covered for paper presenters and discussants. There is no registration fee for the workshop.

Professor Greg Kaplan, of the Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics and the College at the University of Chicago, and an editor of the Journal of Political Economy, will be the keynote speaker.

The conference will feature empirical research papers in any area of public economics, with a particular focus on papers that make use of the ALife, DOMINO, MADIP, Single Touch Payroll or other Australian administrative datasets (making best use of the data; the representativeness of the data; tips and tricks for coding variables into useful variables for analysis, etc.) Each paper will be assigned a discussant. The conference will also provide an opportunity to discuss the state of development of Australian administrative data, and for researchers that are making use of large administrative datasets to share their latest research and insights.

Priority will be given to papers using Australian data over those using data from other countries. We welcome incomplete papers and work in progress. Please feel free to forward this message to colleagues who may be interested.

NOTE: Details on the first Australian Workshop on Public Finance (ALife Conference) held in 2021 are available here.

We look forward to seeing you in Canberra.

Best wishes
