University of Sydney hosts sixth triennial APIRA Conference
12 Jul 2010
With a reputation for academic rigour and the participation of world-leading researchers, the Sixth Asia Pacific Interdisciplinary Research in Accounting (APIRA) Conference runs from 11 - 13 July. This triennial conference promises three days of intensive discussions, debates and networking with leading and emerging scholars in accounting.
This year, APIRA promises to attract strong representation from interdisciplinary accounting researchers the world over. Some of the most prolific researchers from the United Kingdom, Europe, North America, the Asia-Pacific region, and many other countries are represented in APIRA's International Editorial Committee.
A strong interdisciplinary program of research papers and forums addressing the relationships between accounting, auditing and accountability and their social, institutional, economic and political environments will be included in the program.
Held this year at the University of Sydney's Eastern Avenue Complex on City Road, Camperdown Campus, the previous five highly successful conferences have taken place in Sydney (1995), Osaka (1998), Adelaide (2001), Singapore (2004) and Auckland (2007).
This year's conference has been jointly organised by University of Sydney, Macquarie University, Australian National University, University of New South Wales and University of Wollongong.
