The EIASM Public Sector conference welcomes contributions on all aspects of everyday life in public sector organizations. This forum is a conference for scholarly debate on the challenges facing public services in the 21st century .This includes the manner in which public service organizations respond to a recessionary environment. It also includes the impact of changes in technology on public services and the sustainability agenda. Structural changes in service delivery, with more network organizations, are also of interest. The interplay of public, private and non profit organizations in public service challenges is also of interest. The manner in which accounting informs or fails to inform public policy is also relevant to this conference.
This conference welcomes interdisciplinary perspectives on public sector issues. Accounting, Accountability and Governance in public services as captured through the lens of public management, public administration, public policy, and social theory are all of interest for this event.
This Call includes an interest in papers on the manner in which public services are managed and the role of accounting, performance and accountability information in management control. Research papers on the intersection of accounting practice, management styles and public policy are also welcomed. Studies of the nature of, and innovations in, accounting and auditing practices in action across the entire spectrum of public service organizations – central and regional government, local government, health care organizations, non governmental public sector bodies and agencies – are of particular interest for this conference.
Research papers which adopt a variety of methodological approaches are of interest to this conference. This includes studies which are based on in depth case studies of particular organizations; surveys of public sector organizations; historical studies of public sector bodies; observational studies; archival research and discussion papers on matters of contemporary debate.
In the selection of papers for this conference both extended abstracts and full papers will be considered for inclusion in the programme, but preference will be given to full papers by the Scientific Committee.
Extended abstracts (2 pages) or full papers are due by 27 February 2014. Extended abstracts should provide information on the theme of the paper, the theory used, the research method applied and a summary of the results.

Young scholars are invited to submit a research proposal (including a literature review, research questions and research design). The authors of the selected research proposals participate in the conference by (1) having a round table discussion of their research and (2) and being a discussant on one of the presentations by another of the Young Scholars. This format has been devised with the purpose of providing constructive suggestions for improving the papers of Young Scholars.
