Track 1: Accounting, Finance and Economics

Track Coordinators: Professor Ajit Karnik ( and Dr. Rajesh Mohnot (–For any additional information or questions regarding submissions to this track, please contact the track coordinators directly.

This track focuses on contemporary issues within the field of accounting, finance and economics. The changing dynamics of accounting, auditing and reporting are posing new challenges for practitioners, policy makers and regulatory authorities. Researchers and academics need to address these issues by way of carrying out rigorous and scientific methodologies. On the other hand, constant evolution of financial products and services and emergence of more susceptible financial system are all-encompassing, hence there is a need to keep exploring issues and strategies related to such developments. On the economics part, it is well known that this field is always in a state of flux. New developments in existing fields, as well as the introduction of entirely new fields, have been the norm in this subject. The great recession of the 21st century has generated fresh challenges to economists, who have responded with a flood of research in response to these challenges. We intend to feature some of this research in the economics field.
