APMAA 2020 OFFICIAL SUSPENSION ANNOUNCEMENT

 

On April 20, APMAA representative directors were informed that UiTM, the 2020 conference host school, cannot hold the 2020 conference in November because of the Malaysian government guideline on COVID-19 that restricts mass gatherings in the country in the next six months and very likely being extended to one year.

 

In light of the uncertainty of developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, on April 25, APMAA Board Members unanimously decided to suspend the APMAA 2020. With the greatest regret, we are announcing that the APMAA 2020 annual conference in Malaysia will not be held as planned in November 2020.

 

We apologize for causing the inconvenience and disappointment especially to those who are looking forward to participating in this event and have sent papers for presentation. For the safety of all delegates and APMAA families, this might be the best solution at this point.

 

The APMAA Board has agreed for the Malaysia team to co-organize APMAA Conference 2021 together with the Indonesia team which be held in Jakarta. Hope to see all of you in Jakarta. Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay connected.

@@@@Message from the 2020 (16th) Annual Conference Organizer


     The Malaysian team is pleased to invite all of you to come to beautiful Malaysia and participate in the 16th APMAA Conference 2020, which is scheduled to be held on 1-4 November 2020. This event will be hosted by Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) and it will be assisted by several other Malaysian universities such as Universiti Kuala Lumpur (UniKL), International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM); Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM); Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) and Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP).  Since this is our third time hosting the APMAA conference, we are eager, enthusiastic, excited and looking forward to provide a memorable event to all participants.

     The main theme of the conference will be
gStaying Relevant: Finance and Management Accounting in a Digital Erah. The new Digital Era is characterized by technology which increases the speed and breadth of knowledge turnover.  The implications of this era on education, society and the economy are huge and will continue to increase. Understanding the Digital Era in terms of evolution will help ensure we build sustainable socio-economic relationships both with technology and with the advanced knowledge that technology helps us create.

     In tandem with the theme, we invite you to share your research, including theoretical, teaching-based and practice-oriented papers in the conference. We are lining up interesting keynote sessions with a world-renowned digital technology scholar from the Netherlands and two plenary forums involving academic professors and practitioners.  In this new digital age, academics and practitioners must work collaboratively and cohesively towards nation building.  Within the last fifteen years, APMAA as an association and the APMAA annual conferences have continue to evolve from merely discussing management accounting as a subject matter to innovating management accounting as a strategic tool in this new digital era.
@

     The scope of the APMAA 2020 conference will be to expose participants to practical and theoretical developments in management accounting and finance in the new digital age.  We hope the APMAA 2020 conference will be an unforgettable experience and you all will have a memorable and exciting time in Malaysia. Malaysia is Truly Asia.

Events and Meetings during APMAA 2020 (and beyond!)

As APMAA grows and develops we are expanding our connection to our members by creating multi-year activities that connect with teaching and research. At APMAA 2020 we will carry out three new plans that will continue into future years: (1) A panel session Series on Asia-Pacific Accounting Schools; (2) A session on Research Projects; (3) A Quality Control Committee. Descriptions follow:

@

a) Panel Session: APMAAfs Asia-Pacific Accounting School Series (2020-2022)@

 

With an expected growth rate of 5½ percent to 6½ percent in the next three years, the International Monetary Fund (IMF, 2018) predicts that the Asia-Pacific region--which accounts to two-thirds of global economy--is one of the fastest growing and remains the worldfs most dynamic by a considerable margin. The advent of the gfourth industrial revolutionh has brought advanced digitalization into the region, resulting in increasing access to information and connectivity. Digital innovation has appeared as a key contributor to this economic growth. Noticeably, the digital revolution is transforming our work, our organizations and our educational system. It is transforming the way our younger generation play, access information, communicate with each other and learn. To date, this revolution has not drastically transformed the teaching and learning process in classrooms either in schools or universities globally. There is no doubt that education has an important role to play in this new digital era.  We expect that teaching and learning innovations must take place in accounting education.

In view of this digital revolution, APMAA is taking steps to introduce a dedicated plenary session in its annual conference to discuss how top accounting schools in this region react to the requirements of this new digital era.  The plenary session, which we call gAPMAAfs Asia-Pacific Top Accounting Schools Series (2020-2022)h will be included in the next three annual conference programs in Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.  The conference hosts will identify top accounting schools in the region and through a sharing-session format, panelists will share what initiatives are being taken by their schools and universities in dealing with the digital revolution in accounting education.  Respective conference organizers, in consultation with the APMAA management team, will develop a focus/theme each year to facilitate interesting plenary discussions. Critical feedback among participants on this matter will provide an interesting learning experience for all.  APMAA truly hopes that its annual conferences can be a strategic platform for members to learn from each other.  The APMAAfs Asia-Pacific Accounting School Series begins with the theme gAccounting Education Learning Transformation and Bridging the Digital Divide in Asia-Pacific Accounting Schoolsh in the 16th APMAA 2020 in Malaysia (Normah Omar, Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia, December 18, 2019).

 

b) Panel Session by the APMAA Research Projects Committee

 

Our first Research Projects Committee meeting will be at the 2020 meeting!

 

 

The committee will meet each year to help members create research projects that are large enough to need a research team from different countries, and complex enough to need the participation of people with different backgrounds.

We want this meeting to be a launch pad for new projects.

The APMAA research project committee will be a go-between to facilitate creation of research teams for starting collaborative research projects. We encourage you to send the committee Chair (Paul Scarbrough, pscarbrough@brocku.ca) a proposal of your future research. The committee will narrow to 2 projects to present at the 2020 meeting. The selected teams will present their proposals at the committee meeting during APMAA 2020 to attract attention, and participants from different countries. In this regard, the 2020 session will consist of a global brainstorming workshop to start research projects.

How does the committee get involved? How many projects will start this year? What items should we discuss?  On these topics, the committee currently has no sure answers. We will explore these topics with you before our first meeting at the 2020 conference and revise our process as we gain experience.

Here is our plan for the first year: The first meeting will take a form of panel session lasting 60 minutes. Therefore, at most two teams will explain their research projects. At the meeting, each team leader explains his/her project in 10 minutes to the audience (20 min. total). After the explanation by both team leaders, the audience will separate into two groups do have a discussion session on each proposed project. Time allocated for these discussions in the group will be 20 minutes or less. Then, each team leader will report their discussions back to all participants (10 min. each, 20 min. total).  Later, team leaders will submit a summary and progress report to all team members, Committee Chair and APMAA Board Chair.     

 

The ultimate goals of each research project team may be;

·         to produce outputs toward APMAA 20th Anniversary in 2024,

·         to publish final outputs in a book and/or peer-reviewed journal, APMAJ.

·         to support international comparative studies,

·         to develop innovative management accounting skills and knowledge

·         to develop innovative business performance measurements, and etc.

All APMAA members are invited to attend the meeting. Research Project teams will be selected on the basis of the quality and originality of their research as already stated. The team leader should be an APMAA member.

In the meeting, research project teams explain their ongoing research projects. There are no limits or requirements concerning the stage of development of the studies.

The committee does not think it would be possible for a team to present any results at the 2020 meeting. However, the committee expects all teams to have made some substantial progress in their research design already and to have a good grasp of their subject, well-defined research questions, and a first outline of their manuscripts.

c) Quality Control Committee and Next Conference Organizers Meeting

 

APMAA Annual Conference Policy and Mission

APMAA is a gmembers-firsth organization. As everyone recognizes, our annual conferences are the platform that brings our members together. All members are on the list of possible heroes and heroines of our annual conferences.

It is a duty for all conference organizers to develop conference programs and schedules that are gof the members,h gby the members,h and gfor the members.h  Parallel sessions should be the center in all APMAA conferences@and Doctoral Colloquiums. This is our supreme policy and what the Board expects of all conference organizers.

An important mission of APMAA, as an international academic association in Asia, is to provide regional researchers an easy-to-access platform for communicating their research results with overseas colleagues. Our reviewers are not just scrutinizers, as in the case of established conferences such as those organized by the AAA, but rather, we are also facilitators. Developing each otherfs competence in research is APMAAfs core mission.

There exist broad variations in quality (relating to content, writings, etc.) among papers submitted to APMAA parallel sessions. Some are very good, i.e., may be at the level that a good scholarly journal will accept. On the other hand, the quality and writing style of some papers is far from good.

APMAA must guarantee that the research results reported at their annual conferences are honest, accurate and can be relied upon (quality control). However, conference organizing teams and paper review teams (local scientific committee) are different every year in their experiences, skills, and in their level of commitment to paper reviews. This is the reason that we founded the gScientific Committee at Headquartersh in 2018.

 

Reorganizing the Scientific Committee at Headquarters to become the Quality Control Committee. 

The Scientific Committee at Headquarters aimed to support local conference organizing teams and paper review teams to ensure the integrity and the reliability of the manuscripts in the proceedings (quality control). The board changes this committee to the gQuality Control Committeeh from 2020. The Quality Control Committee conducts gprior and post audits on an annual conference.h  It also has a bigger role.

The APMAA Board requests that all conference organizers use the Model Program and Schedule developed on Dec. 11, 2019 (note 1) as a base framework. Like the frameworks used in APMAA 2018 and 2019, it was developed to carry out the conference policy and mission described at the outset.

APMAA annual conferences need to keep consistency and uniformity over the years and across organizers. This is another role performed by the Model Program and Schedule and the function of Quality Control Committee.

Conference organizing team Chairs should report preparation progress to the Board Chair regularly. Official releases and publications using the APMAA name should obtain prior approval from the Board Chair. This scheme has helped to create and maintain trust towards APMAA from the academic society and was a source of our growth in the past decade.

Conference organizers are required to submit detail program and schedule to the Quality Control Committee Head and the Board Chair two weeks before each APMAA annual conference.

The Quality Control Committee Head prescribes a regular audit report (1 page; with a check-form) of each of forthcoming conferences. The report briefly describes evaluation results mainly about (1) an appropriateness of conference program and schedule as a whole in light of the APMAA policy and mission and (2) an appropriateness of local conference organizing team structure and function. Conference organizing teams are required to submit their conference plans and other information to the Quality Control Committee when requested. These audit reports are sent to the Board Chair and also disclosed in Next Conference Organizers Meetings, which occur at every APMAA conference.

In addition, the committee engages in developing a draft of gUniform Guidelines for Conference Organizersh by consolidating and updating the existing procedures, rules and guidelines shown in  http://s-ueno.sakura.ne.jp/APMAA_asia/To_APMAA_Conference_Organizers_.htm and http://s-ueno.sakura.ne.jp/APMAA_2018_Tokyo/.
