Konopka 2019

The workshop constitutes a discussion forum for researchers with an interest in the organizational and social aspects of accounting systems. A large number of researchers have widened the traditional limits of Accounting to consider its impact on organizations and on society in general. This is why the workshop values the social implication of Accounting as well as the interdisciplinarity of papers. Interdisciplinarity refers to strong relationships between Management Accounting and other organizational fields (e.g. Strategy, Finance, Marketing, Human Resources or R&D) as well as social fields (e.g. Social and Environmental Responsibility).

At XXIV Konopka authors can either submit a paper or a doctoral research project. Manuscripts will be evaluated by independent peer review. Selected relevant papers will be presented in Collaborative Sessions. Research projects will be individually presented and discussed in Sessions with Discussant.
