Whilst we were very excited with the plan to take New Directions to Lisbon in December, in the light of current world events we have decided that the best course of action for now is that New Directions Conference and the preceding EDEN course should go VIRTUAL.
We are confident that the scientific value of the virtual format will remain very high, and whilst we look forward to adding back a face to face element to things in future years and hope to enjoy the hospitality of our colleagues in Lisbon, we aim to maintain a virtual element to things also in future.
EIASM has been working hard on the practicalities of a virtual delivery format, so please submit your applications to join the EDEN, your papers for the conference, be prepared to act as a discussant, and to hear from our plenary speakers just as before.

The rate of change in the practice of and research on management accounting appears to be increasing. Many organisations are attempting to change their existing, or implement new and innovative, management accounting systems and practices, based on new management accounting and business ideas, strategies, technologies, structures, processes, operative locations, and information. A number of new challenging objects of planning, control and measurement have recently emerged, including intellectual capital, networks of organisations, big data, and environmental and organizational sustainability, blockchain and crypto currency. The roles and designs of budgeting systems appear to be changing and the significance of performance management and measurement in many variations is increasing. While much of this innovation and implementation concentrates on new costing or performance management or measurement systems and practices, there are also changes related to the roles of management accountants in organisations. Current developments such as those outlined above provide many new and exciting opportunities for innovative management accounting research, and for a fruitful integration of existing accounting knowledge and the currently emerging practice issues. There are indications of increased collaboration between researchers and practitioners in the spirit of engaged scholarship, too.
The purpose of this conference, like its eleven predecessors, is to examine innovative management accounting practices and innovative ideas about how to conduct research on them.
The conference will consist of plenary sessions and research paper presentations.
The Conference Programme is available HERE
