Event reminder: the Research Forum in Hong Kong on 11 October 2015

The International Accounting Standards Board and Accounting & Finance, the Journal of the Accounting and Finance Association of Australia and New Zealand, are pleased to invite you to register for their Research Forum in Hong Kong on 11 October 2015.

The theme of the Research Forum is ‘Consequences of IFRS for Capital Markets, Managers, Auditors and Standard-setters’. The Research Forum reflects the IASB's increasing emphasis on research and its growing engagement with the academic community.

The Research Forum will feature six paper presentations and a panel discussion. Each paper will be discussed by an academic as well as a member of the standard-setting community.

Thus, the Research Forum will provide a setting in which academics, practitioners, and standard-setters can rigorously debate and explore issues related to the development, implementation, and effects of IFRSs.

Further details on the programme and how to register are available in the Research Centre.
