Spring Webinar Report

On March 22-23, 2021 University of Lodz in Poland together with Linnaeus University in Sweden, organized the Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association Spring Webinar.
One hundred fifty eight people participated on the first day of the conference, and 112 people on the second day, which gives a total of 270 participants. About 75% of the participants were professors from various universities in the world, 12% PhD students and 10% master students. The conference also attracted the interest of practitioners (3%). The participants represented various countries from all over the world (alphabetically): Bangladesh, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Spain, Indonesia, Japan, Qatar, Lithuania, Germany, Malaysia, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Thailand, Ukraine and Vietnam. In total, representatives of about 50 research institutions from all over the world participated in the conference.

The main goal of the conference was to enable scientists from different countries to meet, thus creating the opportunity to discuss and exchange views on the latest trends and problems in management accounting in the context of sustainable development of the organizations. During the conference, there were presented papers by practitioners representing world-class organizations, papers presenting the results of scientific research on sustainable development accounting and discussion presentations. After all the speeches, there was a lively discussion.
In our opinion, the Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association Spring Webinar conference was a great success. Below we attach all the acknowledgements (in the "chat") from conference participants and the e-mails we received.
