BACKGROUND

The Manufacturing and Service Accounting Research (MSAR) is the new name of the Manufacturing Accounting Research (MAR) Conference, a biennial conference at which worldwide scholars, researchers and practitioners debate on control, cost and performance management related issues in a wide range of business organizations, both in manufacturing and service. Previous conferences have been held in Eindhoven (1993), Bruges (1995), Edinburgh (1997), Kolding (1999), Pisa (2001), Twente (2003), Tampere (2005), Trento (2007), Münster (2009), Ghent (2010), Helsinki (2012), Copenhagen (2014), Lisbon (2016) and Oslo (2018).
 

The Pisa-2020 MSAR conference continues and evolves themes established in previous conferences, and explicitly acknowledges and addresses the service dimension in business environment as a relevant area for the accounting research perspective. A direct engagement with operational processes has always been a central feature in the academic papers presented MSAR (previously MAR) conference.

Similar to the earlier conferences, the Pisa-2020 MSAR conference continues to welcome papers with a strong operational orientation. Such papers could relate to, for example, the design and use of management and cost accounting, business analytics, management control, and performance management systems in all functional domains of the organization, the use in combination with advanced manufacturing or enterprise resource planning technology, and the use within customer-supplier and inter-organizational networks.

For the Pisa-2020 conference we specifically encourage papers on cost and performance management intended to foster the integration of internal management accounting with innovations in manufacturing and service business processes, such as design and use of management and cost accounting, business analytics, management control, and performance management systems in all functional domains of the organization, the use in combination with advanced manufacturing and service, and the use within customer-supplier and inter-organizational networks. The effects on management accounting of digital technologies in manufacturing and service, i.e. Industry 4.0, is furthermore appreciated. For the Pisa 2020 MSAR we would like particularly address on the implications of business model transformation in management accounting and performance measurement. 

Academic papers are presented in concurrent sessions with all papers having a discussant. There is a dedicated track for PhD students and early-career researchers, with selected discussants from various editorial boards.

The conference is jointly organized by EIASM and the Institute of Management of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna of Pisa.
