The objective of FATRS is to disseminate information on all of areas forensic accounting research and education, highlighting recent developments and innovations. Forensic accounting is an emerging field of study being influenced by a rapidly changing digital world. The symposium will bring together networks of academics, practitioners and educators to discuss the impact of research, teaching and the practice of forensic accounting.
