Message from the Organizing Committee

On the 22nd and 23rd of January 2021, the XX Grudis Conference & Doctoral Colloquium, happening in Guarda, will take place online for the first time.
The organisation team would very much like to welcome all Grudis members in person in Guarda - the highest city in Portugal and known as the City of Five F's (Farta, Forte, Fria, Formosa, Fiel, meaning Abundant, Strong, Cold, Fair and Faithful), with its distinctive cold weather, but also with the usual warm way of welcoming those who visit it. Unfortunately, the exceptional and atypical circumstances we are living in do not allow for this to happen.
The organisation of this Conference is very committed to its realisation and success. Despite the online format, we hope to provide the opportunity for dialogue between researchers and contribute to an event of high scientific quality.
The Grudis Conference will be hosted by the Scientific Technical Unit of Management and Economics of the School of Technology and Management (ESTG) of the Polytechnic Institute of Guarda (IPG), as part of the mission of this institution of higher education to promote and disseminate knowledge.
The Conference will be preceded, as usual, by a Doctoral Colloquium and has, until this moment, the support of the European Accounting Association (EAA).
The conference is aimed at researchers in the field of accounting, post-graduate students (masters and doctorates), and others interested in accounting research.
The keynote speaker at the XX Grudis Conference will be Professor Beatriz Garcia Osma, who teaches in the fields of Financial Accounting and Business Analysis and Evaluation at the University Carlos III, Madrid. Her research is focused on the links between financial reporting, corporate governance, and capital markets.
Given the high scientific relevance of this event, we call for the participation of all.

We call for your participation and are awaiting you (even if virtually) in Guarda!

By the Organizing Committee,
Helena Saraiva
