3rd EIASM Interdisciplinary Leader Award - Call for Nominations


3rd EIASM Interdisciplinary Leader Award

In 2015, the European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM) launched a new Award to acknowledge individuals who have made exemplary contributions in interdisciplinary research. EIASM believes that Interdisciplinarity is needed to ensure that theory-building, empirical research, education and institution-building in management integrate knowledge and progress in an era of increasing specialization. This is essential to further develop management as a field that is able to advance theoretically, to provide relevant knowledge for students and practitioners, and to ultimately help to deal with the grand and highly complex challenges of contemporary society.

The EIASM Interdisciplinary Leader Award is meant to honour the work of exemplary scholarship and/or institutional leadership. This work may involve and be demonstrated by: promoting specific cross-disciplinary streams of research; developing new interdisciplinary theories or methods; applying ideas, theories or methods from other sciences; interdisciplinary education or pedagogical innovations; applying interdisciplinary ideas in practice; facilitating dialogue across disciplines or sciences; exceptional service for academic societies or associations; serving as an example for others in promoting interdisciplinarity, diversity and/or pluralism across management studies.

The EIASM Board calls for nominations for the second Award to be made by email to EIASM’s Managing Director Nicole Coopman ( by December 31, 2017. Nominations should include a letter from the main nominator stating the grounds for the nomination, together with at least three letters of support from other nominators, and the CV of the nominee.

An announcement will be made in the Spring of 2018, followed by the hosting of a special event featuring a talk by the winner to be made to members of the EIASM Academic Council in Brussels in the Spring of 2019. The winner will also receive a €5,000 monetary prize.

For more information, please contact EIASM’s Managing Director Nicole Coopman (, EIASM President Chris Chapman (, or EIASM Board Member Eero Vaara (

MSAR 2018 - Manufacturing & Service Accounting Research Conference (previously named MAR)
Olso, Norway, June 15-16, 2018

The Oslo-2018 MSAR conference continues and evolves themes established in previous conferences, and (as the new name of the event implies) explicitly acknowledges and addresses the service dimension within the business environment as a relevant area for the accounting research perspective of the Conference. 

For the Oslo-2018 MSAR conference, we specifically encourage papers on the use of technology within or in combination with business analytics and control & performance measurement systems.

The conference will consist of an opening session on business-analytics, provided from a practitioner and a scholarly perspective, and conceptually framed by a reputed, academic guest speaker. Academic papers are presented in concurrent sessions with all papers having a discussant. There is a dedicated track for PhD students and early-career researchers, with selected discussants from various editorial boards.

Full papers intended for presentation at the concurrent sessions or the PhD and early-career track should be submitted by: March 29, 2018. 

13th Workshop on Accounting and Economics
Paris, France, June 21-22, 2018

The purpose of this workshop is to promote the application of economic analysis in accounting research.
Submissions should be made by March 15, 2018. 

Report on the 9th Conference on Performance Measurement and Management Control

The 9th Conference on Performance Measurement and Management Control organized by EIASM was held September 13–15, 2017. About 160 papers were submitted to the conference, and 115 papers were selected for presentation. In total, 138 participants from 29 countries were present at the conference. Amongst the countries with the most participants were Germany (16), USA (14), and Finland (11). However, there were representatives of countries from each continent, including Australia, Brazil, Chile, Japan, Morocco, and New Zealand.

There were several papers on ‘established topics’ such as (strategic) performance measurement and management control packages (not surprising, considering the theme of the conference). A significant number of papers were from the public sector, including cultural institutions, health care and charities. Some upcoming topics included Business Intelligence and Advanced Analytics, the role of top management teams and individual managers in the use of management controls, and the integration with other disciplines (marketing, supply chain and R&D).

For this conference, the approach that was adopted for the previous conference (i.e., accepting two types of submissions) has been continued, considering the positive feedback from the last conference. Participants have again been asked to self-select into one of two types of presentations in order to provide more support to scholars who have little experience writing for and publishing in international journals. The first type of workshop was intended for scholars who are (relatively) new at publishing in international English-language journals. Papers selected for these sessions had a shorter presentation time to allow for more feedback from a discussant with experience in publishing in international journals. The purpose of these workshops was to help the community of emerging international scholars better prepare papers for international journals. The second type of workshop was intended for those with more experience in publishing in international journals. Consistent with past conferences, these authors had more time to present their paper with the purpose of stimulating audience participation. From the reactions of participants, we are likely to continue this distinction for future conferences.

In addition to the parallel sessions, there were 2 plenary sessions. Sally Widener provided a discussion on the challenges when doing survey research (based upon a paper jointly with Roland Speklé). Sally’s discussion also served as an introduction to the Journal of Management Accounting Research (JMAR) session on survey research later that afternoon, where 5 papers potentially selected for a special issue JMAR were presented and discussed. On the last day of the conference, Marc Epstein discussed the challenges for applications and research on performance measurement and management control in new settings. discussed the critical role of management control systems for breakthrough innovations. Amongst others, Marc shared several examples of how several organizations use control systems to implement their strategy.

Finally, the last day of the conference also marked the goodbye to Marc Epstein as an organizer of the conference. Marc has, over the last 2 decades, initiated as well as organized the Performance measurement and Management control conference in Nice. The conference has been running every two years since 2001, with increasing participation for almost each edition due to Marc’s great efforts. From Sally’s and my own perspective, Marc has been great to work with: Marc’s willingness to share previous experiences as well as his kindness and advice have set us up for success for future conferences. Thanks, Marc, for all your help, and we hope to see you, as a participant, in the conference of 2019! 

We are pleased to announce that the 10th Conference on Performance Measurement and Management Control will be organized on September 18–20, 2019, in Nice.

Report on the 13th Interdisciplinary Workshop on Intangibles and Intellectual Capital

Since its inception back in 2004, the EIASM Workshop on Intangibles and Intellectual Capital has established itself as a “must” on many researchers’ yearly conference agendas. This year’s edition took place September 21-22, hosted by the School of Economics “G. Fuà” of the Università Politecnica delle Marche and was organised by Professors Stefano Marasca, Maria Serena Chiucchi, and Marco Giuliani, and their team, in collaboration with the University of Ferrara. In line with the steadily increasing number of participants, the Workshop was attended by 145 participants from 21 countries.

This year's Workshop represents a new step in the EIASM longstanding tradition of creating a forum for academic exchange on theoretical and empirical, qualitative or quantitative research, in the area of Intangibles and Intellectual Capital. This edition also provided an opportunity for investigating the value creation dynamics and deepening the subject areas of “Intangibles and Public Sector“ and “Intellectual Capital, Digitalisation and Information Systems”. 

There was a dramatic increase in the number of papers submitted for the mini-track “Intangibles and the Public Sector” in comparison with last year in St. Petersburg, where the first mini-track took place. The 23 papers accepted were presented in seven sessions. The relevance of intangibles in public sector organisations was discussed with a special focus on healthcare, cultural organisations, and universities. The managerial challenges and the consequences of intellectual capital disclosure and management were at the core of the discussion. Furthermore, the new frontiers of reporting offered by Integrated Reporting have become the object of increasing attention from scholars specialising in Public Sector studies.

Report on the 6th Workshop on Talent Management

Talent management is increasingly seen as a critical strategic HR issue among Chief Executive Officers in most multinational companies. In addition, there is growing recognition that talent management is also a critical success factor for Small and Medium-Sized organisations.

The 6th Workshop on Talent Management, held in Barcelona, followed in the tradition of previous workshops in providing a unique forum for academic debate in the talent management area by bringing together both leading and emerging scholars in the field. The Workshop is now regarded as leading in the field, and the latest installment saw conceptual and empirical contributions from 19 countries, examining talent management in different contexts. Around 50 participants attended the 6th Workshop, the majority presenting papers over a wide range of topics in the talent management field. The Workshop was hosted by Dr. Eva Gallardo from the Polytechnic University of Barcelona; Professors Vlad Vaiman and Hugh Scullion were co-chairs of the event.


The 6th Workshop on Talent Management enjoyed support from world-class keynote speakers. Professor Wayne Wascio from the University of Colorado in Denver, and Professor Sebastian Reiche from IESE, informed Workshop participants on important emergent debates in talent management, drawing on their recent leading research on talent management in an uncertain future. Two keynote speakers from the world of practice, Maitena Servajean of Lee Hecht Harrison, and Dagmar Daubner-Siva of Adidas – both senior talent managers – highlighted the importance of understanding the integrated nature of talent management as well as the need to understand the links between talent management, strategy and corporate culture. The feedback from participants was highly positive, and the Workshop enjoys a strong reputation for a developmental culture and for encouraging early career scholars in the field.

The 7th Workshop on Talent Management will be hosted by Aalto University School of Business and held in Helsinki, Finland, October 1-2, 2018.
