Word from the Chairs

It is a great pleasure to see our association growing internationally and even accommodating researchers from other areas related to management accounting applications, like finance and management. In the name of the organizing committee, we are pleased to invite you to the APMAA 15th annual conference in Doha that will be hosted by the College of Business and Economics, Qatar University.

Since this is the first time for the APMAA conference to take place in the Gulf cooperation Council (GCC), we are enthusiastic and eagerly working at Qatar University with the APMAA board and international scholars to make the APMAA 2019 conference an international destination for Accounting and Finance scholars.

The main theme of the conference will be “Management Accounting and Finance in the 21st Century: Challenges and Perspectives”. Manuscripts covering any topical area of management accounting and finance will also be welcomed. They can be theoretical, teaching-based or practice-oriented.

The scope of the APMAA 2019 conference will be to celebrate the new theoretical and practical developments in management accounting and managerial finance of the 21st century with particular attention to Asia-Pacific and GCC accounting issues. In fact, the GCC oil-based economy is in transition to a more sustainable knowledge-based economic model. This transformation creates an eager motivation to actively investigate contemporary issues related to management accounting and finance.

We hope the APMAA 2019 conference will be an opportunity for you to have a productive and an unforgettable experience in Doha. Meanwhile, we are looking forward to seeing you in November 2019.

Chairs of APMAA Doha 2019 Conference,
