MAR is a biannual conference at which worldwide researchers and practitioners debate on cost and performance management in a wide range of business organisations. Special about this conference is the direct engagement with operational processes (be they manufacturing or service) rather than focusing on strategy or corporate governance. The conference series is multidisciplinary, in the sense of attracting both management accounting researchers, as well as people from various fields who are also doing research into topics such as cost management, customer profitability, performance measurement, total cost of ownership, or value chain analysis (and there are more) but who publish their results in journals other than management accounting.
The Ghent 2010 conference continues and evolves the themes established in the seminars held in Eindhoven (1993), Bruges (1995), Edinburgh (1997), Kolding (1999), Pisa (2001), Twente (2003), Tampere (2005), Trento (2007) and Münster (2009). Starting in 2010, the conference will switch to even years and continue to be a biannual event again.
The 10th MAR conference will comprise plenary presentations, concurrent sessions and a special track for PhD students. To some of the concurrent sessions a discussant will be allocated. The PhD track aims to promote young researchers and provides a platform for discussion of and individual feedback to PhD related papers. There will be an appointed discussant for each of these papers.
The conference is jointly organised by EIASM and Ghent University.
