Article Type: Call for Papers From: Accounting, Auditing & Acccountability Journal, Volume 21, Issue 4.

16-17 October 2008 - Escola Superior de Tecnologia e Gestão do Instituto, Politécnico de Leiria, Leiria, Portugal

GECAMB is the Portuguese CSEAR (Centre for Social and Environmental Accounting Research) conference. Consequently, it is similar to the CSEAR UK annual Congress: particularly in its spirit and objectives. GECAMB 2008 will be an informal meeting of researchers, teachers, students and practitioners from both governmental and non-governmental organizations. The conference is for all those who are concerned with social, environmental and sustainability issues as they challenge management and accountancy, theory and practice.

One of the main objectives of the conference is to share the knowledge about new instruments, policies and strategies aiming at sustainable development, from the nterdisciplinary domains of accounting, economics, and environmental planning and management. Another important objective is to create a constructive and informal environment that encourages a critical reflection and discussion about thesematters.

In comparison with previous GECAMB conferences, GECAMB 2008 has a new aspect: a session for discussing PhD and Masters Projects in the area. The objective here is to allow young investigators to present their research projects and/or the first results of their work so that it might be analysed and discussed. Every project discussion will be led by a discussant.


For the plenary sessions and project discussion, we are pleased to announce that the following colleagues have already confirmed their attendance:

David Owen - Nottingham University, UKIan Thomson - Strathclyde University, UKManuel Castelo Branco Universidade do Porto - PortugalCarlos Larrinaga - Burgos University, Spain
