We invite you to join us in the magnificent Canadian Rockies for the 2017 Conference on the Convergence of Financial and Managerial Accounting Research. The conference will be hosted at the world famous Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, located in the heart of Banff National Park. The conference will take place June 19-21, 2017. Participants should plan on arriving on Sunday, June 18 and departing on Thursday, June 22. A Banff area excursion will also be organized.

This year’s conference is co-hosted by the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary and the Merves Centre for Accounting and Information Technology at the Fox School of Business, Temple University, and it promises to be an exciting adventure indoors and out. Building on the momentum of the annual Temple Accounting Conference, now in its 7th year, the 2017 conference brings together accounting scholars interested in numerous topics common to both financial and managerial accounting.

The goals of the conference are to explore state-of-the-art practices, showcase cutting-edge research and discuss thought-provoking questions at the interface of financial and managerial accounting. Leading accounting researchers and business executives will be featured as keynote speakers in plenary talks and panel discussions. A special opportunity will be provided to doctoral students to present their research in a supportive setting.
