2024 Botnia Accounting & Auditing Seminar

It is a great pleasure to invite you to the 2024 BACC Seminar in Vaasa, Finland. The seminar, organized for the second time, is a collaboration between the business schools in the Botnia region. We welcome submissions from Faculty and PhD Students addressing all aspects of financial accounting and/or auditing.

The programme will include research presentations and discussions, a keynote speech, and networking. We are honored to have two distinguished guests: the keynote speaker professor Linda Myers (University of Tennessee, Knoxville) and professor Bjørn Jørgensen (Copenhagen Business School and Hanken). 

Full papers accepted for presentation will have assigned discussants. A limited number of research proposals by PhD students will also be accepted for presentation at a designated research forum.

The programme will start in the morning of Monday, August 26th, and finish in the afternoon of Tuesday, August 27th. To encourage as many as possible to participate and thanks to generous financial support from the Peter Wallenberg Foundation and Svensk-Österbottniska Samfundet, there is no registration fee. There will be a dinner on Monday, August 26th.
