This conference includes an invitation to each university’s team. Although, quota is

The following are sessions before and at the conference: Sessions before the conference Session 1- Class division in accordance with the sub themes The class division in accordance with the sub themes and cases is done by the

committee after the participants registered and before the conference. The sub themes are as follows: 

The role of Forensic Accounting to Combat Accounting Fraud.

As forensic accounting is getting popular in these recent years, it has been

provided as a course by many educational institutions in their respective countries. Forensic accounting is defined as a science dealing with the application of accounting facts gathered through auditing methods and procedures to resolve legal problems. It also

requires the integration of investigative, accounting, and auditing skills. Forensic Accounting in Developing Economies and Problems.

Recent cases of financial scandals particularly in the banking and insurance

industry in developing economies require more professionalism in the field of accounting and finance, thus the need for forensic accounting for litigation support services and

investigative functions. Forensic accounting is a new trend, which is yet to gain ground in 

developing economies, hence accountants lack the technical know-how on forensic issues. The Role of Forensic Accounting in Public Infrastructure

Public infrastructure is one of the vital sectors in the economic development of a

country. Roads and bridges are the examples of public infrastructure. Collapsed bridge, for

example, is going to be fixed by the government and the government has done a budgeting

with a certain amount of money, however, in fixing the collapsed bridge, it takes a long time and the local government claimed that the money given by the state isn’t enough. In this case, fraud or corruption might be happen since the money for fixing the bridge is

given through some levels of government. Thus, the role of forensic accounting is needed for developing the public infrastructure in a country. 

Forensic Accounting in Digital Age The dramatic changes that are occurring in the accounting environment such as: the

new technologies which have an impact on many financial statement filings, new services that accountants are involved in and the need for specialized online database research

skills which are continuously expanding. In response to these changes in the accounting environment, accountants need to have the ability to cope with these changes: the need to

develop skills in thinking and writing, the need to practice knowledge application of

research to problems, and the need to use online databases as tools in gathering and 

organizing the evidence for the investigation of an accounting issue. The Ethical Dilemma in Forensic Accounting

Earnings management is one of the most important ethical issues facing the

accounting profession. Lapses in ethical sensitivity and judgment caused many large, well

known accounting scandals leaving many questioning how accountants make ethical

decisions and why didn’t someone “sound an alarm” that could have mitigated damage caused by corporate misconduct. Although accountants are facing more and more ethical dilemmas, there is little research available exploring whistle blowing behaviors of practicing accountants.
