The AASB is pleased to host the 2022 AASB Research Forum with RMIT College of Business and Law.

The AASB Research Forum is a premier annual event for researchers, practitioners and regulators interested in research on accounting standards and their implementation. Previous forums attracted more than 100 participants from all sectors.

"The AASB has the evidence-informed standard-setting framework for financial reporting standards that are embedded with the process of research, consultation and implementation. We look forward to working with RMIT University on the 2022 AASB Research Forum. This forum will be a great opportunity for researchers and participants to share current thinking and emerging issues surrounding accounting standards, their implementation and applying them in practice," says Dr Keith Kendall, AASB Chair.

Professor Robyn Moroney, Head of the Department of Accounting at RMIT University, says " It is important for academics to conduct impactful research that is relevant to practice. This opportunity will provide academics a platform to present their work, sharing their research at a local and international level. More importantly, such a forum will also provide an opportunity for academics to network with industry professionals and regulators, enhancing their research and professional knowledge".

The forum will be held on 5 December 2022. Invitations to the forum will be opened in October 2022. More details will be available on the AASB webpage closer to the date.
