Aim of the conference: Explore the interrelation of financial communication and capital markets along the areas of accounting, governance and finance
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) set out the basis for accounting practices that provide capital markets with information useful for investment decisions. There is accordingly a huge and growing body of research investigating the role financial reporting plays in capital markets. Moreover, companies increasingly strive to disclose useful non-financial information to satisfy investors’ information needs regarding corporate governance and corporate social responsibility. The upcoming conference will therefore provide a platform for academics and practitioners to analyze recent trends and upcoming challenges in the following areas:
- Financial Accounting
- Corporate Governance
- Corporate Social Responsibility
- Earnings Quality
- Financial Reporting Quality
- Information Processing in Capital Markets
- Investor Relations
We invite the submission of theoretical and empirical studies that advance the understanding of the areas mentioned above.
