Double taxation still remains one of the biggest obstacles to cross-border trade. The conference will analyse the reasons for the existence of juridical and economic double taxation and the given solutions for the avoidance of double taxation. Special emphasis is put on the jurisprudence of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) and on legislative proposals which will improve the situation of the taxpayer.
In 2009, the Luxembourg based advisory firm ATOZ funded a new chair for International and European Taxation at the University of Luxembourg. Since February 2010 this chair has been held by Dr. Alexander Rust who previously taught at the prestigious LL.M. programme for International Taxation at New York University. For the conference he invited leading practitioners and academics who have extensively worked and published on the topic of the Avoidance of Double Taxation within the European Union. Mr. Koen Lenaerts, judge at the European Court of Justice, will illustrate the jurisprudence of the ECJ. After each lecture a panel will discuss the proposals made by the speakers. An audience of more than 200 practitioners and academics is expected to attend the conference.
The conference will take place from 9 am to 5.30 pm at the University of Luxembourg on Campus Kirchberg, 6, rue Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, Luxembourg-Kirchberg ( in English). The conference programme can be downloaded on www.uni.lu in the event section.

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
