8th International Workshop on Accounting and Regulation - Siena, Italy (Jun 2019)

The aim of the Eighth Workshop in this series (to be held in Siena, Italy, June 27-29, 2019) is to make an informed contribution to the wider debate on the role of accounting and financial reporting as a regulated activity, especially highlighting any interactions with corporate governance, auditing and finance. In particular, we ask whether reporting standards should be formulated with the aim to solely help users predict, evaluate and compare future cash flows and their associated uncertainty or to also promote the efficient allocation of resources, as explicitly recognized by Conceptual Frameworks. In a similar vein, should the reporting objectives include the provision of information about external benefits conferred and costs imposed on other entities or individuals? Should distributional considerations enter the standard setting debate or should the role of accounting standard setters be more narrowly defined as meeting stakeholders' needs, leaving issues of economic efficiency, stability and growth, as well as welfare considerations, to governmental institutions?

A feature of this 8th International Workshop on Accounting and Regulation is the involvement of the 
Journal of Management and Governance (JMG),
which wishes to encourage the submission of papers on Governance and Accounting Regulation.

The submission deadline is March 18, 2019.

More details on the event and the call for papers are available HERE

The Workshop Organising Committee is composed of:

  • Roberto Di Pietra, University of Siena (Coordinator), Italy
  • Günther Gebhardt, Goethe-University Frankfurt, Germany
