September 22-25 2022

Anadolu University - Eskişehir


MODAVICA 2022, is an international accounting conference that aims to bring together leading academia, researchers, and scholars. The conference enables participants to exchange and share their experiences and research findings on all aspects of accounting. It also provides an interdisciplinary academic environment for participants to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, propositions, and hypotheses developed for challenges in the field of accounting. Prospective authors are kindly encouraged to contribute to the conference through submissions of their research abstracts which include the original and unpublished outcome of conceptual, empirical, and/or theoretical work in all areas of Accounting.

The theme of MODAVICA 2022 is “Accounting on The Threshold of Planetary Boundaries”. The concept of “planetary boundaries”, introduced in 2009 by a group led by Johan Rockström and Will Steffen, was defined as refers to the nine processes that regulate the stability and resilience of the Earth system.

Stockholm Resilience Centre define resilience as “the capacity of a system, be it an individual, a forest, a city or an economy, to deal with change and continue to develop” (

Planetary boundaries are determined as stratospheric ozone depletion, loss of biosphere integrity (biodiversity loss and extinctions; chemical pollution and the release of novel entities; climate change; ocean acidification, freshwater consumption and the global hydrological cycle; land system change; nitrogen and phosphorus flow to the biosphere; and oceans and atmospheric aerosol loading.

The Planetary Boundaries Research, conducted by the Stockholm Resilience Center, revealed that humanity has already exceeded four of the nine ecological boundaries (biosphere integrity, land-system change, freshwater use, and nitrogen flow). Hence, this new concept led the states and business communities to address these issues with an understanding of social responsibility. Research also raised awareness on the economics of resilience and the need for a new perspective in economics and related fields. Within this context, we would like to discuss at this conference and share the results with the public, that accounting can play an important role in regulating and guiding those challenges rather than having a passive role and also the necessity of developing a new accounting perspective.

In addition to the studies that will be prepared based on this understanding and approach, the conference welcomes the following topics and is open to studies with different approaches in the field of accounting. The interested researchers can apply to MODAVICA 2022; 19th International Conference on Accounting with their original and previously unpublished conceptual, theoretical or experimental studies:
