EDEN Doctoral Seminar on Developing Theoretical Contributions - NEW DATES!

NEW DATES announced for the EDEN Doctoral Seminar on Developing Theoretical Contributions (former EDEN on Developing Conceptual Contributions)
September 24-27, 2019 - Antwerp, Belgium
Application deadline: June 24, 2019

This course facilitates participants' understanding of what constitutes a theoretical contribution in the organisation and management fields. It offers a pragmatic orientation to questions of what theory is, what types of theories can be distinguished in our field – and discusses types of theoretical contributions as published in major scholarly journals. As the course moves from Day 1 to Day 4, class sessions and student assignments become increasingly practical with regard to paper framing and structuring, as well as coping with reviewer and editor feedback, especially on theoretical contribution and conceptual papers.

15th EIASM Interdisciplinary Conference on Intangibles and Intellectual Capital - Non-Financial and Integrated Reporting, Governance, and Value Creation

We warmly invite you to participate in the 15th EIASM Interdisciplinary Conference on Intangibles and Intellectual Capital – Non-Financial and Integrated Reporting, Governance, and Value Creation which will take place at the Coimbra Business School (ISCAC), Coimbra, Portugal, on September 26-27, 2019.

The Conference promises to be – as usual – a truly international and engaging academic event that is characterized by a good and constructive spirit amid the actors of the “intangibles community”. It is not a secret that the subject is nowadays scientifically expanding at an accelerated pace and that arises much interest in a number of diverse disciplines that are all well accepted in the Conference. We will have two very distinguished keynote speakers:

  • Prof. Lucia Lima (University of Minho, Portugal), who will deliver a speech titled “Better Information on Intangible Assets” analyzing the new stakeholders’ information needs and the trends and the attention intangibles are receiving in the accounting and reporting sphere (e.g., IASB, EFRAG, FRC, IIRC, etc.)
  • Prof. Marcia Annisette (Schulich Business School, University of York, Canada, and co-editor-in-chief of Accounting, Organizations and Society), who will deal with the very innovative but also controversial topic of “Making Immigrants Count: An Exploration of Integrated Reporting”.

The Scientific Programme will also include a Panel with Portuguese top managers and the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) aimed at exploring the situation in that country as to measuring, disclosing and reporting on intellectual capital.

Last but not least, the Programme is enriched by four Special Tracks, each of them coordinated by well-known academics, which will be devoted, respectively, to intangibles and the public sector, integrated reporting, brands and reputation, and intangibles and the business and IT transformation in the digital economy (Industry 4.0).

The deadline for submitting extended abstracts is: May 15, 2019 (click HERE to submit)

We really hope that you will be willing to join us in such a stimulating intellectual and experiential venture.
See you in Coimbra!

— Stefano Zambon (Co-Coordinator of the Conference, University of Ferrara)
and Maria de Conceição Marques (Coimbra Business School)

Report on the 1st EIASM Workshop on Preventing Accounting Scandals: Practices and Practitioners - Experiencing Intellectual Nomadism

The 1st EIASM Workshop on Preventing Accounting Scandals: Practices and Practitioners took place at the International University of Monaco, on March 14-15, 2019. Its formal aim was resolutely oriented toward the stimulation of research diversity, and the development of a collective agenda regarding promising future research areas. As stated in the original call for papers, the Workshop aimed “to explore practices and practitioners behind accounting scandals under different perspectives and to bring out new research questions on this area.” A total of 15 papers were presented at the Workshop, by authors from nine countries and three continents. Ten of these papers were qualitative whereas five were quantitative – all aiming, in different ways, to examine different aspects of the backstage of scandals and fraud.

Accounting scandals, collusion and fraud constitute for many people outrageous and highly detrimental events – definitively one of the most pressing and enduring social problems surrounding the domain of business (Neu et al., 2013). From a longitudinal perspective, these events are characterized by a sense of continuity, in spite of the significant resources that organizations and society invest in terms of strengthening regulation and control (Guénin-Paracini et al., 2014). A range of technological apparatuses as well as diverse forms of expertise are recurrently proposed in trying to bring this enduring social problem more and more in the purview of controllability. Yet fraud and fraudsters stubbornly resist. It is also worth noting that significant jurisdictional contests (Abbott, 1988) have taken place around the fraud problem.

Report on the 1st EIASM Conference on Management Accounting and Control in SMEs


The 1st Conference on Management Accounting and Control in SMEs took place on April 12-13, 2019, in the wonderful town of Assisi (Palazzo Bernabei, University of Perugia). The event was chaired by Prof. Teemu Malmi (Aalto University, Finland) and Prof. Fabio Santini (University of Perugia, Italy).

The conference was attended by 37 participants, representing 14 countries from 3 continents (Europe, Asia and North America). In the opening keynote speech, Prof. Roland Speklé (Nyenrode Business University, the Netherlands) addressed some research ideas about the systemic consequences of size and families on control practices. The work was organized into two parallel sessions representing the macro-themes of management accounting and management control. All the participants appreciated the different research topics under discussion, as well as the variety of methodologies and methods in use. A discussant was assigned to every paper, and many useful feedbacks also came from the audience (maybe due to the high specialisation of the conference topic). 

The next EIASM Conference on Management Accounting and Control in SMEs is planned to take place in two years’ time, in April 2021. (details will be available in due course)
