Manufacturing Accounting Research Conference (MAR) is 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 organisations, 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) and Ghent (2010). The latest MAR conference was held in 2010 following a decision to shift the MAR conference to be held in the even years: this contributes to that the MAR conference and the Nice conference on performance measurement and control will no longer be held during the same years.
Similarly to the earlier MAR conferences, the Helsinki 2012 conference will consider the link between design and implementation of management control systems and the relevance to both theory and practice to be essential. The conference will comprise plenary presentations, concurrent sessions and a special track for PhD students. To some of the concurrent sessions a discussant will be allocated. The PhD track aims to promote young researchers and provides a platform for discussion of and individual feedback to PhD related papers. There will be an appointed discussant for each of these papers. The authors of the best conference papers will be invited to submit their papers to Management Accounting Research. These papers will be subject to the journal’s double-blind review process.
The conference is jointly organised by EIASM and Aalto University School of Economics.
