Seminar series: Semester 2, 2008

As part of its commitment to excellence in research, in 2008 the Department of Accounting and Governance conducted a regular research seminar series. Presenters included academic staff from other universities as well as staff from our department. These sessions facilitated the dissemination of current research findings in all areas of accounting and finance.

Seminars during the first semester of 2008 were normally held between 11.00am -12.30pm on most Thursdays in Dunmore Lang Conference Centre - adjacent to the Dunmore Lang College at 130-134 Herring Road, North Ryde.

Any further enquiries may be directed to the Seminar Convenor Associate Professor Sujatha Perera or Seminar Administrator Iris Chung.
