The 2008 crisis whose jolts are still disrupting the global economy, both in developed and emerging countries, along with the financial and ethical scandals that regularly make the headlines of the business press (“Panama Papers”, Petrobras, Lehman Brothers…), profoundly call into question the principles, methods and tools for accountancy, auditing, controlling, and costs control.

Broadly, stakeholders -shareholders, citizens, States, leaders, managers…- require today that this field of teaching, Research and management contribute more actively and visibly to the socio-economic and ethical prosperity of society which could be qualified as “citizenship”. On the one hand, shareholders and leaders in particular are eager to have always more methods for accounting, controlling, and costs control in order to measure and improve the efficiency of their organizations, but also to measure, and better manage their immaterial assets and their environmental performances, which is new. On the other hand, employees, citizens and States are expecting these methods to be a key input to improve public performances, to prevent more effectively the difficulties of businesses and dismissals, to detect frauds, briberies, and laundering earlier, but also to play a leading role in the creation of jobs and the well-being at work.

Citizens are demanding a real revolution of auditing, controlling and costs control in order to obviously, constantly measure and manage more efficiently economic and immaterial performances or organizations, but also to contribute more effectively to the social well-being.

To bring answers to this subject, the 15th Conference of the International Institute of Costs, along with the 4th transatlantic conference will gladly consider submissions dealing with the following themes:

  1. Audit, control and prevention of business difficulties: a forensic accounting 
  2. Cost control, accounting and the public sector 
  3. Strategic cost control and prosperity
  4. Green accounting and auditing 
  5. Is there such a thing as cooperative audit and cost control?
  6. New trends in accounting Research, teaching and education
  7. Accounting and control history
