Call for Papers

The CCFS and PBSAG of the University of Portsmouth are pleased to announce the 2018 conference to be held on Wednesday 6th June in Portsmouth. This will be a unique event in the calendar of fraud conferences by combining invited speakers with opportunities for practitioners,  academics and researchers to offer papers to present to their peers. 

There will be a limited number of slots available for those who have conducted research or have innovative ideas to present papers at the conference. We are particularly interested in papers on cyber fraud, international fraud and corruption, fraud prevention, forensic accounting, technology and countering fraud, psychology and fraud. 

Students who have recently completed dissertations on a subject they would like to raise the profile of are also encouraged to submit. Any other area related to enhancing the fight against fraud and raising standards amongst the counter fraud and forensic accounting community would also be welcome.

If you are interested in speaking at the conference please submit a title, biography and short abstract/paragraph detailing in more detail your proposed paper by Monday 5th February 2018 to:  dean.blackbourn@port.ac.uk . 

Those whose papers are accepted will not have to pay the conference fee (the conference will be free for current University of Portsmouth students and there will be a small charge for non-students). If there is a particular session you would like to organise we would also welcome your suggestions. 

Opportunities for Sponsorship

There will be opportunities for sponsorship of the conference and for stalls at the conference venue. Again if you are interested please contact: mark.button@port.ac.uk
