University of DundeeEuropean Network for Research in Organisational & Accounting Change (ENROAC) - 7th Conference

VENUE: West Park Conference Centre, Dundee, UK
DATE: 23-25 June, 2009


Nature of Conference

Formed in 1999, the ENROAC network consists of academics, accounting practitioners and business managers who share an interest in accounting and organisational change. For more details on the network, please visit its web site:

ENROAC has to-date enjoyed six conferences, in: Manchester (1999), Norway (2000), Italy (2001), the Netherlands (2003), Belgium (2005); and France (2007). All past events were kindly sponsored by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), and the previous two conferences were held jointly with the closely-aligned networks MCA and MACORG.


Conference Information

ENROAC’s 7th conference will be held in Dundee, 23rd-25th June, 2009. There are several features that help to define ENROAC conferences, including:

  • A Practitioner’s Day (day 1) that comprises keynote addresses, on a specific theme, from academic, professional and business speakers.
  • The use of Discussants during all academic sessions, thus promoting substantial feedback to authors as well as nurturing general discussion on the papers presented.
  • An Informal Setting that promotes thought and debate; but, at the same time, leaves plenty of room for networking and fun!

The theme for this year’s Practitioner’s Day is Organisations & Sustainability. Keynote speakers include: Mr Brendan Dick (Director of British Telecom, Scotland), Mr Eoin Cox, MBE (Director & Co-founder of Woodschool Ltd), Jan Bebbington (University of St Andrews,UK), Jesse Dillard (Portland State University, USA) and Angelo Riccaboni (University of Siena, Italy).

We close Practitioner’s Day (day 1) with a civic reception at the famous Discovery Point - the resting place of Captain Scott’s famous Antarctica ship, the RSS Discovery. Our conference dinner (day 2) will be held at the equally splendid Guthrie Castle, where we shall dine (as well as be entertained) in traditional Scottish style!

Fees for ENROAC conferences are always reasonable, and compare well against similar events. As usual we also offer substantial discounts to PhD students.


Submission and Deadlines

You are invited to submit an abstract &/or full paper, the subject matter of which falls within the very broad remit of accounting &/or organisational change, to John Burns: [email protected].
