A personal message from the Conference Chair

San_G2-175We look forward to welcoming you to the Ca' Foscari University of Venice for the 8th European Conference on Intellectual Capital. In the15 century Fra Luca Pacioli published in Venice his book Summa de arithmetica, geometria. Proportioni et proportionalita; a book well-known for the first published description of the method of bookkeeping used by Venetian merchants during the Italian Renaissance, that we now call double-entry accounting.

Venice has been a wealthy city throughout most of its history, but today economies are more complicated. Globalization, innovation and the development of new technologies create new challenges and opportunities for companies, public bodies and countries. Scholars, managers and policy makers must engage with these challenges, and in so doing the complexity of these knowledge-based economies requires the development of new forms of accounting, including the accounting for Intellectual Capital.ECIC 2016 is your opportunity to engage this dialogue by presenting research, theory and application in the field of accounting for Intellectual Capital, in the City where the history of accounting began.
