IASB Research Forum 2014

IFRS Research Forum 2014

IASB Research Forum 2014

The inaugural IASB Research Forum was held at SAID Business School, Oxford University, on 2 October 2014. The focus of the Forum was the Conceptual Framework.

The Forum brought together members of the academic community and standard-setters.  Academics can bring a different perspective to the problems IASB is trying to solve—sometimes analytically and sometimes by reviewing or undertaking studies that are relevant to its work.  The event attracted more than 50 standard-setters and 50 academics from over 30 countries.

Six papers were presented, each followed by an academic commentary and an IASB commentary.

In addition to the papers, there were two panel discussions, each with three academic speakers. The first panel focused on Measurement with Mary Barth, Mike Bradbury and Peter Fiechter.  The second panel was on Decision-useful information led by Anne Wyatt, Begona Giner and Pat Hopkins.

A full record of the event, including papers, presentations and videos, is available from the links below:
