Message from the APMAA 2018 Chair
The 14th Conference of Asia-Pacific
Management Accounting Association (APMAA 2018) is held at Waseda
Campus of Waseda from October 29 to November 1. The conference
is jointly organized by Waseda University, APMAA Japan and APMAA.
On behalf of the APMAA 2018
Conference Organizing Committee, I would like to thank the APMAA
Board of Directors for providing us the opportunity to host the
purpose of this conference is to enhance the understanding of
current management accounting issues in various countries and
create useful theories and methods to close the gaps between
practitioners and academicians in management accounting. We
think that management accounting must be inextricably tied to
the actual organizational situations and environment that it is
intended to serve. Therefore, there is necessity for more
research which aims to enhance our understanding of the various
practices being implemented all over the world. We believe that
this is the tradition and identity of APMAA.
The theme of APMAA 2018 is gThe
Management Accounting: Research and
Practicesh (a tentative theme). APMAA
2018 program will contain two or three plenary and panel
sessions, parallel sessions, and cultural visit. Following like
the previous conferences, we plan to invite excellent scholars,
professionals, CEOs and/or CFOs to these sessions. APMAA
2018 launches special sessions designed by APMAA members to
discuss specific issues and practices of management accounting
Special Session/ Workshop Call
conference venue is International Conference Center of the
Waseda University and Rihga Royal Hotel Tokyo located in the
main campus of the University. Besides Rihga Royal Hotel Tokyo,
we plan to arrange with several reasonable and suitable hotels
near the campus. Fortunately, Waseda University and many other
several accounting institutions and firms will support the APMAA
I hope that a variety of events in APMAA 2018
will provide you with good opportunities to present your
research outcomes and get the latest insights in many areas of
research in management accounting.
I am convinced that
interactive activities with the participants from different
parts of the globe will promote
international exchange and deepen our friendship.
Please prepare now for your
participation of this important conference.
look forward to seeing you at Waseda University in Tokyo.
