IFRS Conference 2023

Metropolitan University Prague & ONLINE

The School of Business Administration at Anglo-American University and Department of Financial Management at Metropolitan University Prague organize the 11th edition of the International Scientific Conference “IFRS: Global Rules & Local Use – Beyond the Numbers”. This event is HYBRID and will take place on October 12-13, 2023 at Metropolitan University Prague.

About the Conference

Scholars, students, and the interested public wishing to know more about bridging the gap between international accounting rules (IFRS) and local applications are invited to share their knowledge and experience at this Hybrid event, organized jointly by the Anglo-American University and Metropolitan University Prague. Issues to be discussed involve finance, accounting, non-financial reporting, management, and international trade, as well as timely concerns brought by the current uneasy pandemic situation.
With the current interest in non-financial reporting and accounting harmonization, this conference aims to focus on specific accounting differences and what lies behind them, as well as topics related to international trade. Submitted papers should be anchored in a theoretical framework and based on practical research, focusing on practices in emerging markets and transitional economies.
