Background and Context:

As financial markets integrate overcoming a pandemic era, business operations diversify, accountability and good governance deepen, the need for consolidated adoption of common global accounting practices intensifies. Heightening this need further are inadequacies in accounting and reporting systems that sometimes undermine the credibility of published financial data. Incidences of inadequate reporting in turn have consistently been making calls for broader research on how best to align the content and presentation of government’s and corporate financial statements better with the interests of the statement’s users.

The BAA-IAARF, a forum for academics, researchers, professionals, practitioners, and policymakers in the area of accounting and public financial management, is going to organize an International Conference on Emerging Issues in Accounting and Financial Management: The Role of Academics & Professionals on January 28 & 29, 2023 (Saturday & Sunday). Through its broadly defined scope, we welcome research papers in areas such as ‘accounting journey’ in retrospect as a social good, inter-disciplinary perspectives on accounting, financial reporting, convergence of technology in accounting and public sector financial management and so on. This conference provides a forum for high-quality, refereed empirical research on critical aspects of accounting and financial management for the moment. Purely theoretical research with the potential for empirical applications and in-depth literature reviews also are welcome. It also aims to bring together leading academics, research scholars, policy makers and industry experts with diversity to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Accounting and Public Financial Management. It aspires to build-up as a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of Accounting and Public Financial Management.

Call for Contributions:

Prospective authors are requested to contribute and help shape the conference through submissions of their original and unpublished, high-quality conceptual, constructive, empirical, experimental, or theoretical research papers in all areas of Accounting and Public Financial Management for presentation at the conference. A list of themes and topics are given alongside this write up inviting research papers from accounting academics, professionals/practitioners, and research scholars.
