From APMAA Chairperson
2022 Annual Conference
Colleague, thank you for your support and commitment to the APMAA
activities over the years.
We hold the 2022 APMAA annual conference at Dhurakij Pundit
University, Bangkok, Thailand, on Hybrid Mode on November 8-11.
The conference theme is "Management Accounting: Recent Themes and
Directions for a Digital Future." Here, I want to introduce you to
the array of events planned for the APMAA 2022 Conference.
Tuesday, November 8, is the day for the 2022 Doctoral Colloquium,
with students presenting their research papers. In the afternoon, we
plan to have a doctoral seminar. The theme is
"Expectations of the doctoral students: supervisors'
viewpoints." Seminar panelists are incumbent supervisors who
tackle issues and problems that doctoral students face and will
provide answers based on their rich experiences.
On Wednesday, November 9 (Day 2), we will have a plenary session of
the conference, with three talks by prominent Thai professors. We
allocate the afternoon of November 9 and the entire day of Thursday,
November 10 (Day 3) to Academic Paper Sessions. We will assign
between two to three papers to each Academic Paper Session.
Each paper is given a total of 35 minutes: 20 minutes for
presentation, 10 minutes for discussion, and 5 minutes for Q & A.
On the afternoon of November 10, we provide two forums. The first
Forum discusses the topic, "Accounting Research: Growing Our
Impact," inviting two prominent accounting scholars, Prof. Dr.
Thomas Ahrens and Prof. Dr. Fumiko Takeda, who have committed to
APMAA for years. They discuss the roles of accounting research in
the academic community and society. Prof. Normah Omar (UiTM,
Malaysia ) moderates the second Forum that addresses the topic
"Expectations for APMAA Conferences," inviting chairpersons of past
and forthcoming APMAA annual conferences as panelists.
It is our policy that conference organizers develop programs and
schedules that are "of the members," "by the members," and "for the
members." I am confident we can deliver a meaningful and well-run
conference by following the policy. On November 11 (Day 4), we
invite international participants to a one-day
bus tour, either for a Culture Visit or a Factory Visit.
The APMAA 2022 Homepage
