The rate of change in the practice of and research on management accounting appears to be increasing. Many organisations are attempting to change their existing, or implement new and innovative, management accounting systems and practices, based on new management accounting and business ideas, strategies, technologies, structures, processes, operative locations, and information. A number of new challenging objects of planning, control and measurement have recently emerged, including intellectual capital, networks of organisations as well as environmental, social and organizational sustainability. The roles and designs of budgeting systems appear to be changing and the significance of performance management and measurement in many variations is increasing. While much of this innovation and implementation concentrates on new costing or performance management or measurement systems and practices, there are also changes related to the roles of management accountants in organisations. Current developments such as those outlined above provide many new and exciting opportunities for innovative management accounting research, and for a fruitful integration of existing accounting knowledge and the currently emerging practice issues. There are indications of increased collaboration between researchers and practitioners in the spirit of engaged scholarship, too.
The purpose of this conference, like its seven predecessors, is to examine innovative management accounting practices and innovative ideas about how to conduct research on them. The conference will consist of plenary sessions and research paper presentations. The general theme for the next conference is "Innovations in management accounting practice and research”.
Their presentations will cover issues like challenging dominant assumptions in field research, innovations in budgets and budgeting, the design and performance of management accounting practices as packages or systems, and advantages of multi-theoretical perspectives for research on management accounting.
Submission of papers that deal with innovative management accounting practices, theories, or research methods are particularly relevant to this conference. For reference, papers on the following types of issues are welcomed warmly:
There will be an appointed discussant for each paper presented at the Conference.
The conference will start on Monday December 15, 2014 early afternoon and is scheduled to end at approximately 5 p.m.on Wednesday, December 17, 2014
