Report on the 13th Workshop on Accounting and Economics

The 13th Workshop on Accounting and Economics, June 21-22, 2018, was hosted by SKEMA Business School, Paris, and chaired by Prof. Eva LABRO (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), Prof. Roland KÖNIGSGRUBER (SKEMA Business School Paris), and Prof. Alfred WAGENHOFER (University of Graz).

79 participants from 17 countries attended the workshop, which provided an excellent forum to exchange thoughts and discuss cutting-edge research projects. In the opening keynote speech, Prof. Qi CHEN (Duke University) highlighted the role of accounting in disciplining capital market participants and sketched avenues for impactful market-based accounting research. The workshop program featured 39 papers presented in three parallel sessions. Research topics ranged from valuation, disclosure, asset pricing, regulation & enforcement, contracting, incentive provision, internal control, relative performance evaluation, information in supply chains, strategic information, governance, auditing, and tax to credit markets. Papers that use economic modelling as well as some empirical papers that are strongly tied to economic theory were presented, followed by lively discussions. The workshop format included a preassigned discussant for every paper, thereby guaranteeing extensive feedback for the authors. The closing plenary session featured a speech by Prof. Steven HUDDART (Pennsylvania State University) on the topic “Killing weak theories with stronger theories”. His inspiring address stimulated discussions on what makes up a good theory.

Overall, the 13th Workshop on Accounting and Economics was organized perfectly by the chairpersons and SKEMA Business School. Once again, the workshop provided a great forum for researchers to get together and exchange ideas.

The next EIASM Workshop on Accounting and Economics is planned in two years’ time in mid-2020. Details will be available in due course.

Report on the 25th IPDMC Conference & IPDMC 2019

The 25th Innovation and Product Development Management Conference (IPDMC) took place at University of Porto, Faculty of Engineering, in Porto, Portugal.

The conference celebrated its 25th anniversary with a special extended programme from June 9 to 14, 2018.

A PhD workshop, chaired by Armand Hatchuel and Keith Goffin, was organized on the 9th and 10th of June, attended by 25 PhD students selected from 35 applications (second highest after Paris: 38). New tutorials by Christer Karlsson and Paul Coughlan were introduced.

The conference was attended by 232 participants, representing 25 countries from 5 continents (Europe, Asia, South America, North America, and Australia).

A total of 160 papers were presented in 7 parallel sessions, covering 19 thematic tracks. The greatest number of papers were presented in the following tracks:  “Organising New Product Development (16)” , “open innovation (15)”, “networks and alliances in new product development (12)” and “innovation strategies and leadership (12)”. Challenge Sessions’, offering the opportunity to receive additional comprehensive feedback on manuscripts and presentations from fellow authors, were organized. These will be retained and made the default alternative (not an extra) in future conferences.

The third day of the conference was a special celebration day, chaired by Christer Karlsson and Paul Coughlan, commemorating the 25th anniversary of the IPDMC Conference. It comprised industrial and academic keynote speakers, and a number of panel sessions. The plenary presentations were particularly stimulating and followed by panel discussion with senior representatives of leading organizations: 

  • Innovation Strategy. Innovation at the French Railways Authority (SNCF). Dominique Laousse, Head of Innovation & Prospective, SNCF, France
  • Extending the business model to solution provider, Trackunit. Per Stjernqvist VP Servitization & Solutions, Trackunit, Denmark, & Christer Karlsson
  • Open innovation and Collaboration in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. João Amaral, Board member, CIO, Logistics and Supply Chain, Sonae MC
  • Innovation and NPD in the aviation industry. ZAL– Hamburg’s Center of Applied Aeronautical Research. Roland Gerhards - CEO of ZAL

The second half of the program consisted of presentations and wide discussion by academic speakers - Gloria Barczak, Jennie Björk, Tommaso Buganza, Milena Klasing Chen, Keith Goffin, Abbie Griffin, Armand Hatchuel, Katharina Hölzle, Priscilla Kraft, Ann Ledwith, and Helen Perks - together exploring a diverse range of themes:

  • Collaborative research challenges and opportunities
  • History of Innovation and Product Development Management
  • Current trends and Challenges
  • Young scholars’ development and career development
  • Research quality
  • Research ideas and approaches

Participant engagement in the discussions was enabled by the creative use of a new interactive and voting software, used for the first time at the IPDMC Conference. Overall, the Conference celebrated its 25th anniversary as it had begun – with innovation, engagement, energy and good research by an active community of inquiry.
