Welcome to the tenth conference on performance measurement and management control. This biennial conference is the place to be for like-minded scholars to participate in debate and dialogue on current research and future trends in the practice of performance measurement and management control across methods and topics.

The conference will consist of plenary sessions, panel sessions, and research paper presentations.

The plenary speakers are:

  • Karen SEDATOLE, Emory University, USA
  • Gerhard SPECKBACHER, WU Vienna, Austria


As in previous conferences, we invite papers using a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches on any topic related to the broad theme of performance measurement and management control. We encourage submissions from around the world with the objectives of having a conference where different points of view are voiced and creating an environment that fosters learning, innovation, and collaboration. We encourage submissions from researchers at all levels of experience, from PhD students learning the art and science of academic scholarship to leading scholars who provide breadth and depth of experience to the discussion.

The topic of this conference is current developments in performance measurement and management control research. This is a broad topic by design with the intent of encouraging research and related discussions on important issues relevant to academic research, to practice, and to society. For example, papers could explore the following:

  • What big data, social media, and accounting analytics mean to management accounting
  • How the role of management accountants is shifting due to changes in technology, both within and outside the finance function
  • How visualization can be used in the control function
  • Business model innovation and change, and the impact on management accounting
  • The use of incentive compensation and performance measures for employees who work in virtual locations
  • Management control systems and packages
  • Management control practices that can help mitigate the prevalence of corporate scandals
  • The integration of ethics and management control
  • Control practices that facilitate knowledge sharing and knowledge creation
  • Measurement of sustainable performance (including CSR and long-term value oriented strategies)
  • Performance measurement and management control for the public sector
  • Risk management and management control
