Second Call for Papers

This is the second call for the annual MARG/MCA conference, to be held on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st November, 2014 at Aston Business School, Birmingham. Papers are invited addressing any area of research into management accounting or management control. Papers addressing the application, or refinement, of management accounting/control processes and techniques in practical settings are encouraged. Academically-orientated papers from practitioners in such settings are especially welcome.

The first day of the conference will commence at 10.00am and will consist of plenary presentations. Invited speakers at this year's conference include:
•Philippe Lorino, Distinguished Professor of Management Control, ESSEC Business School (France)
•Neil Pollock, Professor of Innovation and Social Informatics, University of Edinburgh (Scotland, UK)
•Barbara Townley, Professor of Management, University of St Andrews (Scotland, UK)

At the end of the first day there will be a conference dinner where delegates will have the opportunity to meet and discuss their research interests and practice developments in a relaxed setting. The second day will consist of parallel sessions and may be especially appealing to early career researchers, including those who may still be completing their doctoral studies.

Full papers (or extended abstracts) should be submitted to the organisers by 15th September 2014.
