The IFRS conference returns to AAU on October 20th, 2017, the continuation of a four-year tradition. This international scientific conference will focus on the application of international standards of accounting from both theoretical and practical perspectives.

The main points of focus for this year’s IFRS conference are the special features reflected in accounting practices in emerging markets and transitional economies, as well as the current problems with gaps between international accounting rules under IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) and local regulations.

Annually, this conference meets to elaborate ever 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).

Further details on the conference are available on the link and the published proceedings to date are available on

We look forward to meeting with you at the next conference meeting on October 20, 2017.
