- Event Location: Bangalore, India
The IFIM Business School, promoted by the Dalal Street Investment Journal Group, is hosting the 15th Annual Conference of Asian Academic Accounting Association on 16–17th October, 2014 in Bangalore. The Doctoral colloquium was held on 15th of October, 2014.
The theme of the conference is Accounting and Accountability. Understanding the word accountability is a complex process of multiple layers and dimensions. The accounting process is no longer confined to a transactional frame; rather, it emerges as a primary tool related to corporate governance. A combination of accounting and accountability may lead to very interesting areas of knowledge, ethos, and power, and may lead to fundamental questions like accountants are accountable to whom, for what, when, and how. The process mechanisms and standards are laid out in detail for professionals. Moral pulls and pushes are faced by professionals in the back cover drop of political, economic, legal, professional, cultural, and institutional settings. The theme is extended to all areas of accounting, auditing, taxation, and corporate governance.
