9th CSEAR North America

Host: Location: Rawls College of Business, Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas, United States of America

Similar to other CSEAR conferences, the 9th CSEAR North America Conference will be a deliberately informal gathering and discussion forum for researchers, teachers, students and practitioners concerned with social and environmental accounting, teaching and research in the very widest sense. Its emphasis is on a high level of interaction, discussion and debate in a friendly, supportive and relaxed atmosphere.

Attendees will include academics, practitioners, and PhD students at all levels of experience, and involved with all aspects of social, environmental, sustainability theory and practice in accounting and other disciplines. The main objective of this conference is to provide a forum for discussions to enhance research in policies and strategies relating to the sustainability agenda within North America.

The conference will feature a research plenary focused on sustainable innovation as well as a practitioner forum. Details to follow.

The Accounting Forum is a sponsor of the 32nd CSEAR International Congress
Mon 26th August - Thu 29th August

34th International Congress on Social and Environmental Accounting Research (27–29 August 2024)

Host: Location: University of St Andrews, St Andrews, Scotland

This residential conference at The University of St. Andrews is a gathering of academics, practitioners and researchers who focus on the teaching, research, theory, and practice of social, environmental and sustainability accounting and reporting. The spirit of the conference is interdisciplinary and so submissions are also invited from perspectives beyond accounting. Please note the conference venue and the submission date.

The CSEAR conference provides a forum for scholarly work in various stages of development and explicitly encourages open discussion as well as close collegiality.
