With the advent of International Financial Reporting Standards, accounting is more than ever a global field where professionals, scholars and practitioners evolve and work across borders. Accounting research has greatly benefited from the opening of institutional and other borders as it has provided for greater opportunities to expand research domains and to enhance the diversity of accounting academe. By its content and orientation, this year’s conference intends to reflect such trends.
Moreover, in the spirit of accounting research being increasingly international, the CAAA opens up its own frontier by holding its annual conference jointly with the Association francophone de comptabilite (French Accounting Association), France’s leading accounting academic association; thus, allowing for further international networking and, yes, connections.
