The Centre for Financial and Corporate Integrity (CFCI) are inviting paper submissions for the first ever International Conference in Techno-Auditing 2021 (ICTA2021).

The free two day conference will be led by CFCI in collaboration with ISACA. The event will draw from the centre’s expertise in finance and governance and analyse new and emerging research to understand how technology is shaping the future of the external audit profession.

The virtual conference, which is free to attend, will take place on 28 and 29 June 2021.

Developments in IT systems such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and big-data analytics are changing the way that business is conducted with the external audit industry increasingly relying on IT for fraud detection and prevention.

  • Financial technology (FinTech) applications for auditing purposes
  • Information Systems Audit
  • Digital Business: Innovation, Strategy and Governance
  • AI/ ML Technology applications in Auditing
  • Technology-Assisted Audit Techniques
  • Regulatory Technology (RegTech) and its Application
  • Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) and their Applications
  • Case Studies of Technology-led Auditing Education
  • The use of technology in fraud risk assessment in auditing
  • The use of technology in Forensic Accounting

Conference papers, along with an abstract of no longer than 150 words, should be sent to the organising committee before the submission deadline on 15 May 2021.

In addition, CFCI are inviting the authors of accepted conference papers to submit their papers for a special issue of The Journal of Applied Accounting Research devoted to ICTA2021. Submissions to the special issue will open after the conference on 1 July, and close on 30 September 2021.
