Annual Conference 2016

Monday 21 - Wednesday 23 March 2016 Chancellors' Building, University of Bath

The British Accounting and Finance Association (BAFA) is pleased to announce that its Annual Conference will take place from Monday 21 to Wednesday 23 March 2016 at the University of Bath. This event is preceded by the BAFA Doctoral Conference, also at the same venue, on Sunday 20 and part of Monday 21 March 2016.

We look forward to welcoming researchers and teachers from the UK to hear papers from both established researchers and early career researchers, and sharing vibrant debates about new developments and contributions in our field.

This year the registration fee is £280 (and only £140 for full time non-salaried PhD students and retired members) for the full conference which includes attendance at the Conference Dinner, which will be taking place in the famous Assembly Rooms in the city of Bath.

Only members of BAFA are permitted to participate in this event so the relevant subscription fee may also be applicable in addition to the registration fee .

The BAFA conference is an excellent opportunity to present academic papers in any area of accounting and finance to an audience of fellow academics from across the UK and many other countries, to engage with cutting edge research that is being undertaken across many areas of accounting and finance in the UK and globally, and to network with a wide range of academics.

Paper Submissions

We welcome the submission of full papers in any area of accounting and finance for presentation at the conference. The deadline for submission of papers through our online system will be Monday 21 December 2015. To submit your paper sign up and click the submit button (you can either pay for membership then OR on hearing whether your paper is accepted). Please download the submission guidelines (PDF) for formatting information.

Submissions will be open by 16th November 2015 due to the website being updated. 

All papers will be fully refereed. We aim to notify acceptance decisions by Friday 15 January 2016. For accepted papers, the corresponding author* needs to have registered for the conference by Monday 8 February 2016 for their paper to be included in the conference programme.

* Please note that due to the high demand to present papers we are only able to receive one paper from each corresponding author (the corresponding author does not need to be the paper’s lead author). If you are a co-author on more than one paper you wish to have presented at the conference, then a different co-author will need to act as corresponding author and register to attend.
