We are pleased to announce that University of South Australia Centre for Markets, Values and Inclusion (CMVI) will host the joint conference of Asia-Pacific Interdisciplinary Research in Accounting (APIRA) and Alternative Accounting Research Network (AARN) in Adelaide, Australia on 2-4 July 2025 and the Emerging Scholars’ Colloquium on 1 July 2025.

The conference theme is “The Value of Accounting in Transforming the World”.

Over the past three decades, the APIRA community has worked together to support and contribute to the growing interdisciplinary research in accounting and has established a leading platform to showcase the importance of interdisciplinary research in the Asia-Pacific region. More recently, the APIRA community has joined the AARN community to bring the conversation to the next level while providing an international forum to discuss and debate on the critical role of accounting in shaping a more equitable, inclusive and sustainable society.

The 2025 APIRA-AARN joint conference will be held in association with and sponsored by the Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal (AAAJ), Critical Perspectives on Accounting (CPA) and Accounting Forum. The CMVI at UniSA Business looks forward to welcoming you to University of South Australia in Adelaide – a contemporary, vibrant and picturesque city. We will celebrate 30 years of success of APIRA and embrace the new generation of interdisciplinary and alternative accounting scholars who are more courageous, motivated, and determined to make a real change to transform our world for sustainability.
