The International Accounting Standards Board (Board) will host its fifth Research Forum on 11 and 12 November 2018 in Sydney Australia, jointly with the accounting journal Abacus. The Board is now calling for people with backgrounds other than academia to apply to attend the event.
This annual event brings together academics, accountants and other stakeholders to discuss topics including non-GAAP earnings, accounting in extractive industries and intangibles.
Bringing academics together with other stakeholders enables the Board to get a broader range of perspectives on important financial reporting topics.
The number of attendees at the event is limited. Please register your interest by 14 September 2018. The registration form and further information about the event, including the complete programme, can be found here.
