The fifth annual International Accounting Standards Board (Board) Research Forum will take place on 11 and 12 November 2018 in Sydney, Australia.
Each year the Forum is held in conjunction with an academic journal, and this year we are delighted to partner with Abacus, a journal from the Accounting Foundation at the University of Sydney.
The Forum will provide an opportunity for academic authors to present their papers to a mixed audience of academics and accountants in standard-setting, regulation, industry and practice. Board members and staff will also introduce case studies and panel sessions on topics currently being considered by the Board.
Ann Tarca, Board member, said:
I am very pleased that the fifth IASB Research Forum will be held in Sydney Australia in conjunction with Abacus. The Board pursues evidence-based standard-setting and academics are well placed to provide evidence that is vital in our standard-setting process. I encourage academics located internationally and in the region to submit papers for the Forum, on the topics outlined in the call for papers.
