         Message from Chair of APMAA 2017 Annual Conference

The Department of Accounting of Shanghai Jiao Tong University will host the 13th APMAA conference from November 6th - 9th, 2017. On behalf of the APMAA 2017 Conference Organizing Committee, I would like to thank the APMAA Board of Directors for providing us the opportunity to host the upcoming conference.
We have a capable and experienced team on our organizing conference committee. Professor Lijun Xia, the Chair of Department of Accounting, Professor Xiaodong Xu, Professor Shengquan Hao, Professor Guifeng Shi, and my colleague Dr. Renhui Fu, Dr. Wen Li,Dr. Wenyun Shi and Dr.Yu Chen are included in this committee.

The theme of the APMAA 2017 is “Management Accounting and Society: A Global Perspective". The purpose of this conference is to enhance the understanding of current management accounting issues in various countries. The conference will provide a plenary session, a panel session, parallel sessions, and cultural visit.

The conference venue is in the campus of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, which is located near a transportation hub of Xujiahui, one of the major commercial centers in Shanghai. We have contacted several suitable hotels around the campus. To provide an outstanding computer service, we located a computer company to design the 2017 conference website. The website will be open on November 1, 2016. We also
contacted some accounting institutes and firms and have their agreements to be our sponsors.

To promote the influence of 2017 APMAA conference, the members of our conference team have brought the message of the forthcoming conference to many important academic meetings such as the annual conferences of American Accounting Association, European Accounting Association, and CANAPA, etc. We hope to attract more fresh participants all over the world to our conference.

In the 2017 major program, we plan to have two or more plenary and panel sessions. One of them will be a special session for CEOs and CFOs to present their cases of management accounting practices. Therefore, we need to invite a group of excellent scholars and professionals to be our keynote speakers and moderators. Fortunately, we have good responses from outstanding professors and professionals.

The objective of the APMAA conference is to promote the advancement of management accounting theory and practice with particular reference to Asia-Pacific accounting issues. We are now going to take more efforts to achieve this goal. My team and I have been pleased to learn and grow with APMAA through participation in all of these activities. I promise to continue working hard on the conference.

I believe this event in 2017 will provide you with the most productive opportunities to hear about the latest insights in many areas of research into management accounting and allow interaction with the participants from all over the world. Please mark your calendar now. We look forward to seeing you in Shanghai in Fall, 2017.  

Best regards,
 Hu, Yiming,
 2017 Conference Chair, 2016 APMAA Vice President
 Professor, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China

Jiao Tong University President's Welcome
An experpt from )

Welcome to Shanghai Jiao Tong University!
Established in 1896 as Nan Yang College, Shanghai Jiao Tong University is one of the first national institutions of higher learning in China. The name "Jiao Tong" comes from the book Yi Jing. Literally, "Jiao" means unite and "Tong" means harmony. In the book it says, when heaven and earth unite in deep harmony, peace and blessing descend upon all living things; when leaders and people unite and combine their influences, the nation enjoys universal flowering and prosperity.
With a shining history of more than 117 years, SJTU has grown with and shared weal and woe with the country. At present, it is implementing a grand blueprint for future development and determined to make continued efforts to build itself into a first class university in the world.
SJTU, as it is fondly called, is a dynamic and comprehensive university for excellent students education, cutting-edge scientific research and social service. From the early stage of its development, SJTU took first-class talents education as its principal mission. And today, it has been developed to the talent education idea of knowledge exploration, capacity development and personality nurturing.
Whether one is Academician or newly enrolled freshman, whether one’s field is mechanical engineering or contemporary literature, in the name of truth-seeking spirit, SJTU encourages its faculty and students to join a common search for answers to the fundamental and to the pressing questions that society is faced with. Members of the SJTU community are united by this spirit to pursue intellectual excellence, and dedicated to the discovery of knowledge in the classroom, the laboratory, and the community. For its members, SJTU has become the place where their dreams start to fly.
Besides its remarkable history, SJTU is also a university famous for its honored traditions. Its tradition of gratitude and responsibilities has already been deeply rooted in the hearts of its alumni, and to some, it has become their behavior philosophy.
As the 39th president of SJTU, I am not only proud of its glorious history, time-honored traditions and great contributions, but also proud of being kindly called “Brother Jie”( “Jie Ge” in Chinese)by the students at SJTU. I really enjoy the time sharing and exchanging ideas and thoughts with them.
Thanks for your interest in SJTU and you are always welcome to visit us on campus or through the website at any time.

Zhang Jie
President of Shanghai Jiao Tong University
