The International Journal of Accounting (TIJA) Symposia

The Symposium began in 1967 with the goal of fostering research in international accounting and populating the ranks of scholars who are interested in the field. Since 2003, the Symposium has been held abroad in collaboration with other universities to help benefit by the talents of scholars in different regions of the world.

The Symposium has three objectives:

  • Improving the quality of research through an in-depth discussion of six to ten papers
  • Learning additional research skills
  • Helping to generate new ideas.

2024 Illinois International Accounting Symposium and Nanyang Business School Accounting Conference

 June 3 - 6, 2024 | Singapore

The theme of the conference will broadly be on the interplay between accounting and ESG (Environment, Social and Governance), with an emphasis on sustainability.

We will also be holding a doctoral consortium on the first day of the symposium to assist up to 25 PhD students with the development of their dissertations.

The symposium will be held at the new Gaia Building, a zero-energy building and the largest wooden building in Asia on the Nanyang Technological University campus.

The Gaia Building


For transport from the airport to the hotel, participants can either: (1) take a cab from the taxi stand available at each airport terminal (most convenient means), or (2) take the train (less convenient as it involves changing lines) from the basement of Terminal 2 or 3 to Clark Quay station (Exit G), which is next to the hotel.

Please see the  program for additional details.


Hotel reservations are the responsibility of each attendee. We encourage you to book your hotel as soon as possible. A conference room rate of 250 Singapore dollars per night can be obtained at the Paradox Merchant Court hotel by using the code in your confirmation email.
