Wednesday, October 5, 2022

The AASB will be co-hosting the 2022 Research Forum with RMIT College of Business and Law on Monday 5 December in Melbourne at Dexus Place on Bourke St.

This year we are offering the opportunity for you to attend in Melbourne at Dexus Place on Bourke St, virtually if you cannot join us in-person, or at the University of Queensland in Brisbane from the live viewing satellite broadcast venue.

Limited spots are available for in-person attendance. Register here.

The AASB Research Forum is a premier annual event for researchers, practitioners and regulators interested in research on accounting standards and their implementation. Previous forums attracted more than 100 participants from all sectors.

"The AASB has the evidence-informed standard-setting framework for financial reporting standards that are embedded with the process of research, consultation and implementation. We look forward to working with RMIT University on the 2022 AASB Research Forum. This forum will be a great opportunity for researchers and participants to share current thinking and emerging issues surrounding accounting standards, their implementation and applying them in practice," says Dr Keith Kendall, AASB Chair.

Professor Robyn Moroney, Head of the Department of Accounting at RMIT University, says " It is important for academics to conduct impactful research that is relevant to practice. This opportunity will provide academics a platform to present their work, sharing their research at a local and international level. More importantly, such a forum will also provide an opportunity for academics to network with industry professionals and regulators, enhancing their research and professional knowledge".
