The European Auditing Research Network, EARNet, founded in 2000, intends to foster research and exchange ideas among auditing scholars and researchers in Europe. Its primary objective is to promote European auditing research, including supporting auditing researchers in their early career. EARNet also aims to contribute to European policy-making in the auditing area.
The tenth European Auditing Research Network Symposium will be held on September 6th and 7th, 2019 in Parma, Italy. The Symposium is established as a major event in Europe for presentation and discussion of auditing research papers. It also provides a forum for academics, practitioners, policy-makers and standard-setters to discuss auditing research and current issues in the auditing environment. The Symposium includes parallel sessions of presentation and discussion of research papers, a plenary panel session and a keynote speech. The keynote speech will be given by Philip Wallage (University of Amsterdam). The Symposium’s panel session will focus on “Audits in a digitalized world – What´s new?”. There will be a best paper award.
All paper submissions must be in Word Format, anonymous, and accompanied by a separate Cover Page with author information.
A Ph.D. Workshop will precede the symposium on Thursday, September 5th, 2019. The Ph.D. Workshop aims to promote high quality auditing research among young European researchers.
