IPDMC has established itself as the leading annual international conference in the domains of innovation management and new product development. Papers presented at the meeting come from multiple disciplines. Adjacent areas such as technology management, entrepreneurship, marketing of innovations, creativity, and design are significant parts of the programme. The conference has become the focus of important networking among innovation and product development management researchers, for PhD students and junior faculty as well as senior faculty. It is the annual event for researchers in the field, and serves as the annual meeting of a virtual society, with participants enjoying coming back to meet colleagues. The ambiance is known as friendly and supportive.

This is intended to signal the inclusive nature of the conference and the community of innovation and new product/service development researchers who participate. Submissions covering leading edge topics and new trends are welcome.

After the Conference, the Conference Board and Scientific Committee will encourage selected authors to submit their papers for review to the Journal of Product Innovation Management or Creativity and Innovation Management.

Report on the 12th Workshop on Accounting and Economics

The 12th EIASM Workshop on Accounting and Economics, 23-24 June 2016, was hosted by Tilburg University,
and chaired by Prof. Eva LABRO (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), Prof. Jeroen SUIJS (Tilburg University),
and Prof. Alfred WAGENHOFER (University of Graz).

Approximately 70 participants from 15 countries attended the Workshop, which provided an excellent forum to thoroughly discuss their research. In his inspiring opening keynote speech, Prof. Chandra KANODIA (University of Minnesota) highlighted the real effects of accounting policy and discussed their implications for standard setting. The workshop program featured 38 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/experimental papers that are strongly based on economic theory were presented and followed by vivid discussions. The workshop format included a preassigned discussant for every paper, thereby guaranteeing extensive feedback for the authors. In the closing plenary session, Prof. Paul FISCHER (Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania) addressed the question: “What if agents care about more than wealth, consumption, and leisure?” His insightful speech stimulated discussion on aspects like accounting and status, social norms. as well as modelling characteristics.

Overall, the 12th EIASM Workshop on Accounting and Economics was organized perfectly and provided great opportunities for researchers on accounting topics rooted in economic theory to exchange ideas.

The next Workshop is planned in two years’ time in mid-2018. Details will become available in due course.
