On October 20th, 2017, the four-year tradition continues through this international scientific conference. This IFRS conference focuses on the application of international standards of accounting from both theoretical and practical perspectives.

The main points of focus are special features that are reflected in accounting practices in emerging markets and transitional economies, and the current problems of the gap between international accounting rules under IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) and local regulations.

The purpose of our meetings is to strengthen the academic community in regards to accounting, IFRS, and enforce research of contemporary developments in social science. The end-goal is to develop discussed conference papers further to make them publishable in journals that are included in databases such as SCOPUS and Web of Science to heighten the academic standard of Czech accounting academics.

Annually, this conference meets to elaborate and explain further on IFRS. The conference was first organized on October 18, 2013 and has been an annual tradition since. Conference proceedings from the years 2014, 2015, and 2016 have been included in the Web of Science Core Collection and integrated in the Web of Science by Thomson Reuters.

This year’s conference will feature guest speakers Professor David Alexander (University of Birmingham), Professor Anne Jeny (ESSEC, Paris), Professor Jiří Strouhal (Škoda Auto University, Mlada Boleslav), and Alice Machova, (CFA).
