FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
This is the first call for the annual MARG / MCA conference, to be held on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st November, 2014 at Aston Business School, Birmingham. Papers are invited that address any area of research and practice into management accounting or management control. Papers addressing the application, or refinement, of management accounting/control processes and techniques in practical settings are encouraged. Papers from practitioners in such settings are especially welcome.
The conference will commence at 10.30am on the first day and will consist of plenary presentations. Presenters will include a number of high profile contributors to the management accounting literature. Speakers at last year’s conference included Professors Paolo Quatrone, Bob Scapens and Martin Messner.
The first day ends with a conference dinner where delegates will have the opportunity to meet and discuss their research interests and practice developments in a relaxed setting. The second day will consist of parallel sessions and is planned to be especially appealing to early career researchers, many of whom may still be completing their PhD.
Full papers (or extended abstracts) should be submitted to the organisers by 15th Sep 2014.
For the plenary presentations preference will be given to full papers.
