IAAER Sponsored Conferences

October 20-21, 2016: MODAV Accounting Conference
Izmir, Turkey

After consultation and discussion among the IAAER Executive Committee, we have concluded that the IAAER should withdraw from joint sponsorship of the Accounting Conference scheduled for October 20-21, 2016 in Izmir, Turkey.  IAAER will continue to collaborate with the Accounting Conference organizing committee through its involvement on the scientific committee and by promoting the conference and providing support in preparing the conference program.  We have discussed this decision with our colleagues in Turkey; while they regret the decision, we think they also understand it. The conference itself will be held as scheduled.  IAAER members are of course welcome to register for and attend the conference, which will be sponsored by MODAV with IAAER as a collaborating organization.
