EXRIMA - Experimental Research in Management Accounting

EXRIMA Summer School and Conference 2020 postponed to 2021!

Dear friends of the EXRIMA Summer School and Conference,

The EXRIMA organizers have discussed intensively how to deal with the EXRIMA Summer School and Conference in light of COVID-19. As many researchers are still uncertain about whether their institution will allow business travels and as it is still unclear whether accommodation will be available, we decided to postpone the EXRIMA meeting until the next year. We also believe that, by doing so, we meet our responsibility to contribute to flatten the curve. We will update our website once the dates for the EXRIMA 2021 have been set. We hope to receive your application or submission also for the next EXRIMA Summer School or EXRIMA Conference, apologize for any inconvenience our decision may cause and appreciate your understanding.

Stay safe and healthy!

Best regards,

The EXRIMA Organizers

EXRIMA stands for Experimental Research in Management Accounting. Founded in 2012, EXRIMA is a joint initiative of Thorsten Knauer (University of Bochum), Friedrich Sommer (University of Bayreuth), and Arnt Wöhrmann (Giessen University). The initiative is generously supported by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).

EXRIMA’s objective is to enhance the collaborative research output in management accounting using experimental methods. Therefore, EXRIMA pursues three main goals:

  • strengthening doctoral education in experimental research in management accounting,
  • providing a platform to discuss management accounting research using experimental methods (laboratory, case-based, field etc.), and
  • building national and international networks.

EXRIMA started its summer school series in 2012. Since then, internationally renowned researchers in experimental management accounting have been invited as faculty. Since 2018 the EXRIMA conference serves as a platform to present and discuss innovative high-quality research projects in experimental management accounting.
