The Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Accounting Conference is an established forum for research into the social, political and organisational aspects of accounting. It brings together accounting researchers with broad social science interests and researchers from disciplines such as anthropology, history, philosophy, sociology and political economy. It responds to the concerns of an evolving research community and seeks to highlight emerging intellectual issues and to encourage new agendas.

After 2009, University of Innsbruck will host IPA for the second time in 2021. The keynote speakers will include Emily Barman (Boston University) and Catherine Gibson (Western Sydney University). We are looking forward to welcoming you for an exciting and intellectually stimulating conference in the spectacular surroundings of the Innsbruck Alpine Region.
