Organizing Universities




Emerging Scholar Forum



The Emerging Scholars Forum will be held at the
Crowne Plaza Hotel, Coogee Bay, Sydney, Australia
June 21, 2017

The purpose of the forum is to provide MPhil students, doctoral students and recent PhDs in management accounting with useful feedback on their dissertation and on issues relating to a career in accounting academia. Participants in the Emerging Scholars Forum will be given an opportunity to present a brief overview of their dissertation topic (10-15 minutes presentation), followed by 30-35 minutes of active and constructive discussion from the floor.

Participants in the early stage of the PhD program may elect to 'audit' the Forum (that is, no presentation is required by early stage scholars). Each session will be attended by a number of senior faculty members as well as other doctoral students.

Senior faculty members for 2017 will include:

Mandy Cheng, UNSW Australia
Jan Mouritsen, Copenhagen Business School
Eddy Cardinaels, KU Leuven
Anne Lillis, University of Melbourne
Marc Wouters, University of Amsterdam

The Emerging Scholars Forum is open to all MPhil students, doctoral students and recent PhDs in management accounting, who are nominated by their Head of Department. The registration fee is AU$435 (early bird rate) for the Emerging Scholars Forum and the GMARS Conference. Forum participants need to arrange their own accommodation and transportation.
