24 INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ACCOUNTING RESEARCH
24TH INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON
SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ACCOUNTING RESEARCH
PROGRAMME 3rd ² 5th September 2012,
Gateway Building, University of St Andrews
Welcome to the 24th Annual International Congress on Social and Environmental Accounting Research, often referred to
historically as the `CSEAR Summer School¶
(i)
The Conference opens with a plenary introduction followed by a half-day of Research Methods and Master Classes.
Further details follow in the programme but please note that these sessions will vary in their informality and that most require
some pre-thinking about the issues. Five sessions are available before coffee with the same five repeated after coffee
so that delegates can attend any two sessions.
Each Master Class will consist of a maximum of 15/20 people. Sign up sheets will be available at the Conference
Registration Desk, run on a first come first served basis. Please sign up for the sessions you are interested in attending.
(ii)
The Conference will then continue with smaller parallel paper sessions and parallel workshop sessions. Presentations of
papers and work in progress will be made in this less formal setting. The papers presented vary from those which are fairly
well developed to fledgling pieces of work. Given this, the sessions are intended to provide interaction between the paper
presenter and the group participants. Formal papers will not be available in every instance, however abstracts have been
sent to you ahead of the conference, and are available on the CSEAR website. These will be displayed at the conference,
and authors may be contacted later. (Authors of papers who are attending the conference are shown. Due to space, other
co-authors are not included in the programme).
(iii)
This year we are delighted that Professor Jan Bebbington from University of St Andrews and Professor Carlos
Larrinaga from the Universidad de Burgos are our academic plenary speakers, who will be presenting ³Accounting for
sustainable development: an emerging field´RQ:HGQHVGD\PRUQLQJDWDP.
(iv)
As you will all know 2012 is the UN International Year of the Co-operatives and we are most pleased to welcome Ed
Mayo (Co-op UK) and Hugh Donnelly (Co-operative Education Trust Scotland) as our plenary speakers for a
Practitioners Workshop. This session will be held on Tuesday afternoon.
(v)
In addition there will also be a meeting of the SEAJ Executive Editorial Board on Monday pm starting at 5pm in SR6 and
the CSEAR Executive Council will be held on Tuesday pm at 7.00pm at the Scores Hotel, St Andrews. Attendance is
restricted to Board/Council members and International Associates only. If this applies to you, you should have received a
personal notice inviting you to attend ± if in doubt please ask Rob, Jan, Sue or Lynn.
(vi)
On Wednesday afternoon, we are pleased to be hosting the first International Meeting of the Sustainability Context Group
with a half day workshop event which will be held in the Boardroom of the Gateway Building from 1.30pm ± 4.30pm. The
meeting is focusing on a submission to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). The half day has been organized as another
HOHPHQWRI&6($5¶VHQJDJHPHQWDQGSUDFWLtioner initiative and CSEAR is grateful to Mark McElroy, Martin Thomas and Bill
Baue for this opportunity.
