The MIT Asia Conference in Accounting aims to bring together academics and practitioners of accounting and corporate governance in the Asia-Pacific region with leading scholars from the United States, Europe, and beyond. The goal of this annual two-day conference is to incubate and develop rigorous and relevant research in the field of accounting, defined broadly.
Through thoughtful and constructive workshops and interactions, the conference expects to encourage and facilitate researchers in Asia to employ the highest standards of academic diligence in addressing challenges that are topical to managers, investors, regulators, and/or market intermediaries such as auditors and analysts. Over time, the conference hopes to become a preeminent forum for cutting-edge accounting research in Asia.
This year, the conference will be held in Chengdu, China on July 14 and 15, 2014, with a welcome reception the evening of July 13.
