COMING UP: Annual SIG Workshop 2018

Annual SIG Workshop 2018 – ‘Co-creating knowledge in public sector accounting and accountability’

6th – 7th November 2018, University of Glasgow Adam Smith Business School, Glasgow

The Special Interest Group‘s Annual Workshop is a platform that brings together scholars and practitioners; a place to develop and discuss ideas, share knowledge, and tackle topical issues in accounting and performance measurement in the public sector.

Public sector accounting and accountability scholarship has never been more relevant to practice and also more in need of being challenged by practitioners and policy makers. The IRSPM Accounting and Accountability Special Interest Group has partnered with University of Glasgow Adam Smith Business School to offer an innovative platform for provocation to scholarship from ‘practiced’ public sector accounting and accountability. Provocations will take the shape of case studies and dilemmas from practice as springboards for academic debate in a round-table format.

This year’s themes came from you, our members, and your networks:

  1. Financial Resilience
  2. Accounting Standards: the Impact of Accounting Regulation on Decision Making
  3. ‘Richer’ Accounting & Accountability for Collaborations

Three pairs (academic – practitioner) of ‘provocateurs’ will instigate and lead the discussion on these themes. So join us for an exciting 24-hour marathon of keynote presentations, case studies and emerging collaborative and iterative reflections.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

Professor David Heald (University of Glasgow)
Professor Irvine Lapsley (University of Edinburgh)
Professor Lee Parker (RMIT Australia and University of Glasgow)
Professor Peter Murphy (Nottingham Trent University)

Our workshops are always free to attend but, to guarantee a dynamic format, places are capped at 50 and allocated on a first come, first served basis. Book your place soon to avoid disappointment.
