Parthenope University of Naples

Villa Doria D’Angri, Naples, Italy

18-20 April 2018, Naples (Italy)

On behalf of the conference board, this year’s organising committee:

Prof. Daniela Mancini (Parthenope University of Naples)

Dr. Rita Lamboglia (Parthenope University of Naples)

Prof. Giuseppe D’Onza (University of Pisa)

Prof. Gerrit Sarens (Louvain School of Management)

is pleased to announce the arrangements for the 16th European Academic Conference on Internal Audit and Corporate Governance hosted by the Department of Business Administration and Economic Studies, Parthenope University (Naples, Italy). It will be held at the monumental site of Villa Doria D’Angri, in Via Petrarca 80, Naples.

The title of the conference is broad, and we welcome submissions from the full spectrum of internal auditing (IA) and corporate governance (CG). The conference will provide a forum to present debate and discuss current issues impacting these areas. The first day will be dedicated to a forum to enable PhD students to present “works in progress” to experienced academics and practitioners. We encourage students at all stages of their PhD to submit. The main conference will be held on the second and third day.

The accommodation expense will be reimbursed to all the presenters in the PhD day and they may attend the main conference free of charge (travel expenses will have to be paid by the participants themselves).


Guidelines for submission

For PhD students

Submitted papers should be classified according to the stage of development. These stages are:

  • Exploratory papers that address the work that is likely to be carried out in the future. These should be based on a significant literature review, and are likely to come from students who are about to or have recently completed their first year.
  • Development papers that are based on evidence and are at a stage where they may form a significant part of a thesis.
  •  Full papers that form a substantial part of a thesis that is near to completion.

ü    For all papers

The deadline for submissions is 31 January 2018. For that date we accept both abstracts and full papers, though preference is given to full papers. Abstracts and full papers should be submitted as either a Microsoft Word or a rich text file (.rtf), as an e-mail attachment addressed to: iacg2018@uniparthenope.it.

Notifications of acceptance will be sent out before 16 February 2018. Full versions of papers are required by no later than 31 March 2018.

We would encourage any potential author to contact either the conference chair or the PhD programme chair if they would like to discuss their ideas before submitting an abstract.



A number of papers will be selected for submission to Journal of Management and Governance following a fast-track review process for publication
