ERMAC is an incredible conference! Meeting with emerging management accounting scholars and providing feedback on their research papers and proposals was a rewarding experience. It was wonderful to learn more about their innovative research ideas. I also enjoyed the opportunity to engage with practitioners in the “Thought Bridge” session and learn more about the latest trends and contemporary challenges in practice.

“ERMAC is truly a one-of-a-kind experience in all the best ways! It was a joy to connect with up-and-coming management accounting scholars, to help shape their research at stages when it could help them the most, and to learn from them in return. In addition, the ‘Thought Bridge’ session connecting academics and accomplished practitioners is a unique and much-needed way to inspire meaningful research. All-in-all, this conference is a gift to all who attend.”

More about Annie

"I found the ERMAC Conference to be one of the most useful conferences for young scholars that I have ever attended. The informal, interactive discussions between senior and junior faculty members and the participating doctoral students that followed each paper presentation provided the ideal forum for developing new research ideas and improving ongoing projects. When combined with the participation of practitioners, ERMAC provides a powerful setting for advancing cutting-edge management accounting research."

"It was a joy to participate in the ERMAC conference, and meet the next generation of Management Accounting researchers in Europe, coaching them on their early-stage research, as well as sharing some thoughts on how to develop management accounting research ideas. Unlike in many other conferences, the number of participants is deliberately kept small, allowing me to connect with every person individually. The “Thought Bridge” session provided an interesting bridge between academe and practice – one of the sources of new research ideas!"

Eva Labro, Kenan-Flagler Business School

"The community of young scholars around ERMAC is a lively group, eager to share new ideas and explore improvements in research methods. They have significant potential to transform the landscape of accounting research in Europe."

Joan Luft, Michigan State University

More about Joan

ERMAC was such an amazing experience. Building a community of young European scholars is important to continue building on the successes of research contributions in management accounting. Getting to see the innovative ideas and provide valuable feedback at an early stage is a privilege. I can’t wait to see some of these studies in print! The interface with practitioners is especially important to allow junior academics to not only meet and interact with these professionals, but see the clear link between our research and practice. I hope to be part of ERMAC for years to come!

Melissa Martin, University of Illinois Chicago

"The ERMAC conference is amazing! The blend of accounting and management perspectives coupled with the smaller size of the gathering helps to create rich discussions and insights.

Wim A. Van der Stede, London School of Economics

More about Wim

I thoroughly enjoyed the ERMAC conference. I found the conference design, which included small-group exchanges with PhD students, to facilitate stimulating and thought-provoking discussions in a friendly environment. The intimacy of the conference encouraged interactions and relationship-building amongst the attendees. I highly recommend PhD students and scholars interested in management, management accounting, and control to attend the conference if the opportunity arises; if the opportunity presents itself for me to return, I would certainly do so! Thanks to Gerhard Speckbacher, WU, and Karin Zemanek for organizing such a terrific conference.
