Norwalk, CT—October 26, 2022—There’s still time to register for the “Accounting for an Ever-Changing World” conference, a first-of-its-kind event sponsored by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), and The Accounting Review (a publication of the American Accounting Association). The event takes place November 2–4, 2022, at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York City.

Participants who attend the conference online or in-person are eligible to earn up to 20.8 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits. The conference features presentations of new academic research papers that support the FASB and the IASB in their post-implementation review of recent major standards as part of an ongoing initiative to strengthen connections between the academic and standard-setting communities. The conference is appropriate for all accounting and finance professionals, investors and other financial statement users, and anyone with an interest in high-quality financial reporting.

Featured speakers include FASB Chair Rich Jones and IASB Chair Andreas Barckow who will begin the conference with a fireside chat moderated by Mary E. Barth, Joan E. Horngren Professor of Accounting, Emerita, at the Stanford University Graduate School of Business. Paul Munter, acting chief accountant of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), will present the keynote luncheon address at noon on November 3.

The conference also provides a forum for the presentation of academic research studies that produce insights into whether the FASB and/or IASB standards on revenue recognition (Topic 606 and IFRS 15), leases (Topic 842 and IFRS 16), and financial instruments (Topic 326 and IFRS 9) have (1) accomplished their stated objectives, (2) provided benefits to users of financial information, (3) resulted in unexpected implementation or continuing application costs, or (4) given rise to unexpected consequences.

Register today to attend virtually or in-person. More information about the conference and registration is available on the conference website at
