SIG ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2016

Wednesday 4 - Friday 6 May 2016 The MAC, Belfast

The BAFA Accounting Education SIG Annual Conference is designed to provide:

  • a setting for discussions of research into innovations in accounting education amongst a range of other topics in the area of accounting education;
  • a forum for presenting emerging and full papers;
  • workshops at which researchers can develop ideas for research projects or discuss current work and ideas;
  • opportunities for accounting educators to identify partners (or institutions) for collaborative research;
  • a network of continuing support amongst attendees.

Emerging papers will describe either the initial stages of a project or the initial analysis of findings. Full papers will describe completed projects. Discussant’s comments will be provided on full papers. 

Our keynote speakers are Professor Kim Watty Associate Dean Deakin University (Australia) and Professor Trevor Hassall Professor of Accounting Education Sheffield Hallam University (UK). This year's conference is organised by Professor Joan Ballantine, Ulster University Business School.
