6th International Conference on Accounting and Finance in Tr

CALL FOR PAPERS 6th International Conference on Accounting and Finance in Transition (ICAFT) - 2008 Nov 6 to Nov 8, 2008 (Deadline for papers July 01, 2008) Institute of Management Technology, Nagpur and University of Greenwich, London are jointly organizing a major international conference devoted to exploring issues raised for accounting and finance academics, practitioners, and policy makers as a result of periods of rapid economic and social change. The conference is the sixth in a row, following earlier conferences organised in Greenwich (2003, 2005, 2007), Kavala, Greece (2004) and Adelaide, Australia (2006). THEME The 6th ICAFT will examine not only those issues related to transition from a command to a market-oriented economy and their implications for the accounting and finance professions, but also all other aspects of accounting and finance affected by times of rapid social and economic change. Papers in any area of accounting and finance are welcome, especially those addressing issues such as the failure of classical accounting and finance models and methodologies to grasp the nuances of emerging markets. The conference organisers will entertain any innovative and thought provoking paper that challenges the dominant schools of thought and offers an alternative explanation. Papers in International Business (International Finance and Financial Strategy) are also welcome, as well as those dealing with the future of the accounting and finance professions. Comparative studies on the development of the accounting profession in emerging markets are of particular interest for one of the conference tracks. The above list of topics is by no means exhaustive, and any paper dealing with any issue facing the accounting and finance professions in the 21st century will find a positive response from the International Programme Committee. The International Programme Committee is comprised of scholars from Australia, China and SE Asia, Europe and the United States, with a background in accounting, economics, finance, law and other social sciences, including a number of editors of learned journals. The composition of the Programme Committee demonstrates a commitment to select papers that adopt not just traditional but also multi-disciplinary approaches to accounting and finance issues. Indeed, integrative, comparative, cross-cultural, and multidisciplinary approaches are strongly encouraged. It is expected that there will be four parallels tracks focusing on Accounting, Finance, Public Policy and Accounting/Finance Information Systems. Groups of scholars and practitioners are encouraged to propose a particular session with a minimum of four papers under any of four main tracks. One of the applicants must resume the duty of the leading applicant and ensure that all the panel participants attend the conference and comply with conference regulations.
