FASB and the Chookaszian Accounting Research Center of the University of Chicago Booth School of Business Announce Call for Papers for 2024 Emerging Financial Reporting Issues Research Symposium
Academics invited to free informational webinar on March 3, 2023
Norwalk, CT—February 8, 2023—The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the Chookaszian Accounting Research Center (CARC) of the University of Chicago Booth School of Business today announced a call for academic research papers focused on the financial reporting of intangibles. Selected papers will be presented at the FASB and CARC co-hosted 2024 Emerging Financial Reporting Issues Research Symposium. The deadline for submitting papers is November 17, 2023.
During the FASB’s 2021 Agenda Consultation Invitation to Comment, the accounting for and disclosure of intangible items was listed as a top priority for investors, and the FASB has a project on its research agenda to consider improvements to that area. Research papers submitted for consideration for the symposium will help inform the FASB’s consideration of how to improve the financial reporting for intangible items including those externally acquired and those created internally.
The 2024 Emerging Financial Reporting Issues Research Symposium will take place on Friday, April 5, 2024, at the FASB headquarters in Norwalk, Connecticut. It will be the first in a series of three symposia co-hosted by the FASB and the CARC in 2024, 2025, and 2026. Announced last month, the symposia are intended to encourage and support academic research relevant to financial reporting issues that are the subject of early-stage standard-setting activities.
