5th ANNUAL CONFERENCE
AFRICAN ACCOUNTING AND FINANCE ASSOCIATION
2ND TO 4TH SEPTEMBER, 2015
THE WESTIN TURTLE BAY RESORT & SPA
The African Accounting and Finance Association (AAFA) Conference brings together established scholars, early career researchers, graduate students, policy makers, professional bodies and practitioners to debate on contemporary issues in accounting and finance. This is the AAFA’s flagship event and the 2015 conference, co-organized with the University of Mauritius, builds on successful conferences in Ghana (Accra, 2011), Abuja (Nigeria, 2012), Kampala (Uganda, 2013) and Cape Town (South Africa, 2014).
The conference invites conceptual, empirical research, and country case study presentations in all areas of accounting and finance, relating to Africa and/or beyond. Paper submissions and presentations must address both the theoretical and practical implications of the findings. Parallel tracks of refereed presentations will enable authors to obtain constructive feedback on their study and selected papers will be invited for consideration to special issue in affiliated journals. In addition to a high quality and enriching research experience, we will also provide delegates with the opportunity to explore the idyllic island of Mauritius. Finally, we are delighted to announce that the ACCA will be our lead partner and sponsor supporting the 2015 conference.

He has published in top tier accounting journals such as the Journal of Accounting Research, Journal of Accounting and Economics and The Accounting Review.
