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 nonprofit 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 is also interested in specific changes in public sector accounting such as the adoption of IPSAS.
