We cordially invite you to join us for the 4th International Conference of the Foundation for Auditing Research (FAR) on Monday the 3 June and Tuesday 4 June 2019 in Breukelen (the Netherlands) entitled “Evidence informed policy making for the future of the auditing profession”.

The conference is focused on sharing findings from FAR Research Projects as well as introducing new projects, disseminating existing knowledge on relevant questions from auditing practice, and discussing views from practice, standard setters and regulators.

We are happy to announce that our Keynote Speakers this year will be Robert Knechel (University of Florida and FAR Board member) on Changing paradigms in auditing as an economic service and Miguel Minutti-Meza (University of Miami) on Influential observations and inference in accounting research.
This year’s conference will again be chaired by Willem Buijink (professor of accounting at Open Universiteit and board member of the FAR).

We are furthermore happy to be able to announce the following presentations by FAR Research Groups on (intermediate) research findings or new research projects (which will be discussed at the conference by audit practitioners to reflect practical relevance of the research) on the following topics:

  • Fraud cues in the audit by Mark Peecher (University of Illinois)
  • How auditors may confuse status of experts with skills by Justin Leiby (University of Illinois)
  • Multiple team membership by Reggy Hooghiemstra (University of Groningen)
  • Going concern judgments by Marshal Geiger (University of Richmond)
  • Professional skepticism by Ann Vanstraelen (Maastricht University) & Sanne Janssen (University of Antwerp)
  • Audit partner performances & compensation by Olof Bik (FAR / Nyenrode University) & Jan Bouwens (FAR / University of Amsterdam)

Lastly, we are happy to have Murray Barrick (Texas A&M University) and Jere Francis (FAR Audit Research Chair at Maastricht University) as invited speakers on Accounting students’ values fit to the firms during recruiting.
