The Fifth International Conference of the Journal of International Accounting Research (JIAR)

Adelaide, South Australia, 1-2 July 2017

In July 2017, the International Accounting Section of the American Accounting Association (AAA) will hold the fifth conference of the Journal of International Accounting Research in Adelaide, South Australia, at The University of Adelaide.

The goal of this conference is to expand the scope and impact of international accounting research through increased understanding and awareness of international accounting challenges and opportunities. Original and rigorous research will provide academics, practitioners and regulators with deeper insights into international accounting issues. While the journal continues to welcome innovative and high quality research which examines how accounting information affects capital market participants, one of the goals of the 5th Journal of International Accounting Research (JIAR) conference is to increase the scope and impact of international accounting research. We hope by having the conference in Australia just prior to the Accounting and Finance Association of Australia and New Zealand (AFAANZ) Annual Conference, we will receive high quality research from that area, as well as other areas of the world. Papers that address interesting and innovative research questions in all areas of international accounting are welcome but papers addressing issues such as the following are particularly welcomed for plenary sessions:

  1.  Lessons learned from IFRS adoption - How and why do effects of IFRS adoption vary across countries?
  2.  The challenges of management and control in a global world. Does IFRS affect the stewardship role of accounting?
  3.  The relevance of methods and paradigms from cross-cultural psychology and international business to international accounting research.
  4.  Challenges to the auditing profession and enforcement of accounting standards internationally.
  5.  The development of an international accounting profession and its challenges; including ethics, education, enforcement, language, etc

The conference will feature two types of sessions: Plenary Sessions and Concurrent Sessions. The submission deadline is 31 January 2017.

The Key-note Speaker for the conference will be Professor Mary E. Barth who is the Joan E. Horngren Professor of Accounting at Stanford University, Graduate School of Business. Professor Barth has been named the next Senior Editor of The Accounting Review (from 1 June 2017).
