AAP 2016 will focus again on key topics like financial reporting, audit and corporate governance, management accounting and management control, public sector accounting, accounting versus taxation, accounting information systems, environmental accounting, accounting education and research and challenges of the accounting profession. However, for this year’s edition we also welcome contributions in two new areas, i.e. business law and communication in accounting, in the attempt to facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations.

The AAP 2016 keynote speakers are Professor Aileen Pierce (UCD Lochlann Quinn School of Business, Dublin) and Professor Juhani Vaivio (Aalto University School of Business, Helsinki). Professor Pierce’s teaching and research has focused on financial accounting and reporting, accounting regulation and the accountancy profession. Professor Vaivio’s core expertise includes topics like strategic performance measurement, management accounting change and the role of business controllers in the organization. Both keynote speakers have performed editorial and review activities for several accounting journals. In light of the wide research and review experience of the scientific committee, as well as of the two keynote speakers, participating authors may expect to receive valuable feedback on their work.

The papers shall be submitted in English, according to the template available on the conference website. After the online registration, all the articles received will be subject of a double blind review process. No more than two papers as a single author or co-author shall be accepted for presentation.
