HIGHLIGHTS: Conference Explores Accounting and Risk Management

The Journal of Accounting and Public Policy (JAPP) is pleased to hold the third of its annual conferences rotating among the IE Business School, the London School of Economics and Political Science and the University of Maryland’s Smith School of Business. The third conference will be held on May 29, 2014, at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business in College Park, Maryland (less than 10 miles from downtown Washington, DC, with easy Metro access). The third conference will be focused around the theme of Accounting and Risk Management. A special issue of JAPP will be published based on the papers and related discussions presented at the Conference. Risk Management is best thought of as a process that consists of several phases, including identifying risks, determining methods for mitigating and transferring risks, and for controlling/responding to damages caused by risk not mitigated or transferred. The bursting of the dot com bubble, the accounting scandals at the turn of the century, and the recent financial crisis have heightened awareness of the importance of risk management and the role accounting plays in risk management.

Conference Coordinators:

  • Alnoor Bhimani, London School of Economics and Political Science (London, UK)
  • Salvador Carmona, IE Business School (Madrid, Spain)
  • Lawrence A. Gordon, Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland (USA)
  • Martin P. Loeb, Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland (USA)
