BACKGROUND

EIASM is proud to announce the EIASM 16th Interdisciplinary Conference on “Intangibles and Intellectual Capital – Non-Financial and Integrated Reporting, Governance, and Value Creation" in collaboration with the Faculty of Management, Economy and Sciences of the Catholic University of Lille. The event will be held on 14-15 September 2020 in Lille (France). (Please note that it is the first time that it will take place on Monday and Tuesday.)

This Conference is intended to continue its long-standing role in creating a forum for academic exchange on theoretical and empirical, qualitative and quantitative research in the area of Intangibles and Intellectual Capital widely conceived. Indeed, the measurement, reporting and management of Intangibles and Intellectual Capital at a micro, meso and macro level is becoming a focal topic for the theory and practice of various disciplines (accounting, valuation, marketing, organisation behaviour, strategy, non-financial reporting, investor relations, human resource, sustainability, etc.).

More recently, the debate has been further energized by the Integrated Reporting initiative, whose focus on the value creation processes has revealed new research and practical perspectives on the complex and multifaceted role of Intangibles and Intellectual Capital in and around organizations.

Their close linkages with the socio-environmental sustainability area and related issues also provide a further thrust to the study of intangibles-related topics.

This event will also provide an opportunity for investigating the value creation dynamics and deepening the subject areas of “Intangibles and Public Sector “, “Integrated Reporting”, “Management Control of Non-Financials”, “Brand Valuation and Reputation”, and “Digital Business Transformation, IT-Investments and Intangibles”.

It will also be devoted to a systematic reflection on the emerging issues linked to Integrated Reporting and Governance as well as on the relationships between intangibles and UN’s SDGs (Strategic Development Goals).

There is a clear risk that the gap between the theory and the practice of intangibles management, measurement and reporting may gain momentum and, therefore, there is a strong need for the development of an innovative and challenging research agenda with reference to it.

Studies on the impacts of information technology on the aforementioned fields will be particularly welcome.

CALL FOR PAPERS

The 16th EIASM Conference aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice in the concerned field by fostering reflections and “prognoses” on Intangibles, Intellectual Capital and Integrated Reporting and Governance and, thus, to favour an osmosis between knowledge creation and knowledge application. In this perspective, topics of particular interest include (but they are not limited to) the following: 

  • Accounting for and reporting on intellectual capital: advances in financial accounting and business valuation;
  • Advances in the management accounting and control of intangibles and intellectual capital;
  • The role and the impact of Integrated Reporting and Integrated Governance in private and public organizations;
  • Connectivity of information and organization actions and outcomes;
  • Intangibles, intellectual capital and value creation;
  • Intangible liabilities;
  • Intellectual property from a managerial and valuation perspective;
  • Human resource management and accounting;
  • Customer capital management and accounting;
  • Relationships with strategic stakeholders: measurement and management;
  • Innovation and intellectual capital;
  • Production and consumption of intellectual capital measurements;
  • The perspectives offered by Business Models in measuring, managing and reporting intellectual capital and intangibles;
  • Intangibles and governance;
  • Conceptual underpinnings of intellectual capital and intangibles’ research;
  • Intangibles and risk management;
  • CFOs and Intangibles management and reporting;
  • Intellectual capital reporting and disclosure: frameworks, benefits and drawbacks;
  • Intangibles and gender issues;
  • Non-financial information and the needs of analysts and investors;
  • Non-financial information and Integrated Reporting assurance;
  • Socio, Environmental and Economic Sustainability: reporting, metrics and governance issues;
  • Intangibles and SDGs

We invite papers on any of the aforementioned topics without any specific constraints in terms of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches.

In order to contribute to bridging the above mentioned gap between theory and practice, speeches and presentations from academics and practitioners as well as roundtables will be organized to stimulate discussions regarding the “state of the art” and future avenues. Details will be announced later on.
