Balkan Countries 1st International Research Conference on Accounting and Auditing will take place on the 8th and 9th of March, 2007 in Edirne, Turkey.
Edirne, situated on the European border of Turkey, is an ancient settlement with a rich cultural background and is a gateway of Anatolia to Europe. The city has succeeded in preserving its many historically and architecturally important buildings. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to visit the historical sights and museums in Edirne. They can also visit Istanbul after the conference during the weekend.
The conference venue is Trakya University Türkan Sabancý Cultural Center. An exhibition of historical accounting documents will be organized during the conference.
Trakya University, which is one of the organizers of the conference, assumes a key role in developing relations between Turkey and the Balkan countries. The University has a number of institutions and schools spread over the entire Trakya region. The Turkish Association of Accounting and Finance Academicians (MUFAD) which is formed by approximately 600 academicians working in various Turkish universities, is the co-organizer of the conference.
The theme of the conference will be “International Harmonization of the Accounting and Auditing Standards and Applications of Finance Sector”. Since this is the first conference, it has been considered appropriate to determine the main theme of the conference. We call for papers that address the main theme within a historical framework from the perspectives of education and application. Economic globalization in the world and the developments in the European Union affecting the Balkan region demonstrate that the international accounting and auditing standards tend to globalize. These factors have been influential in determining the theme of the conference.
Anyone attending and presenting papers in the conference from the following countries will be provided with free accommodation. Additionally travel expenses will be paid.
Bosnia & Herzegovina
Macedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic of
