The Forum will comprise sessions in which academic papers chosen by Abacus will be presented by the authors. The papers will be discussed by an academic and a representative of the International Accounting Standards Board, or a panel of academics and non-academics, followed by discussion with the audience.
Topics discussed will include Non-GAAP earnings and the Earnings Quality Trade-off, Disclosure overload and Extractive Industries.

The objective is to have 50 academic participants and 50 non-academic participants. Abacus has issued invitations to academics.
The Board is inviting applications from non-academics. Preference will be given to those with an interest in enhancing IFRS Standards by engaging with the academic community and by considering the applicability of academic research.
The Board rotates the location of the forum around different geographical regions with the objective of engaging with a broad range of participants over several years. Selection will be made to achieve an overall geographical balance with a specific focus on Asia-Oceania this year, and a balance across different backgrounds, for example users, auditors, preparers, regulators and standard-setters.
There is no charge for attending this event, but please note that travel, accommodation and other costs incurred by attendees will not be reimbursed by the Board.
Closing date: 14 September 2018
Successful applicants will be notified in early October.
