ACIS Departmental Seminar Series - Accounting and Information Systems - University of Canterbury

University Community and Public Seminars on Accounting and Information Systems

Seminars on a wide variety of topics are staged frequently by the Department of Accounting and Information Systems (ACIS). Presenters include academic visitors, including Erskine fellows, UC faculty and day-visitors from other NZ tertiary institutions or temporarily based there but holding substantive posts elsewhere. Audiences include staff and postgraduate students of ACIS and of other parts of UC, and other interested people of Christchurch and its environs. Seminars are usually scheduled for after lunch on Fridays and, occasionally, Wednesdays.

Seminars are an effective way to air research ideas, proposals, work-in-progress and draft conference papers and manuscripts. They also provide audiences with an efficient and effective way to maintain their knowledge. Anyone who would like to present a seminar is welcome to discuss the possibility with ACIS. For further information contact the ACIS Seminar Series coordinator, Michael Falta.

Past seminars are an important resource for staff, students and other interested parties. Artefacts from recent seminars are provided below. For previous years, please see past Seminars: 2016 | 2015 | 2014 | 2013 | 2012 | 2011 | 2010 | 2009 | 2008 | 2007 | 2006
