Pop-up Symposium 2024
Accounting Cafe members are meeting again in person. This time, we’re at St Matthew’s Conference Centre in Westminster, London, on Friday, 26 January 2024, for “Pop-up Symposium 2024”. Everybody is welcome.
This is Accounting Cafe’s second face-to-face gathering. We’ll be enjoying a fun-packed day of short presentations, workshops and discussions on a broad range of accounting education issues. What’s not to like?
We warmly welcome everybody from the accounting education community, so please invite others. Educators from schools, universities and training companies will be represented, creating an interesting and diverse mix of talents.
Anyone attending may submit a presentation proposal, although this is not a requirement.
The deadline for proposals is 22 December 2023.
We welcome submissions from anybody but particularly encourage new and less experienced educators to contribute. This is a fantastic opportunity to share your practice in a small, friendly, supportive environment.
Please contact Paul Jennings or Toby York with your ideas for a presentation or discussion. Alternatively, submit papers and presentations by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, following the guidance set out below.

Submitting a presentation or idea
We are adopting the lightning presentation format. This allows for a quick overview of the content with five minutes to present up to five slides (although slides are not required). There will be a further five minutes for questions. You will also have opportunities to discuss your presentation informally with others throughout the day.
Contributions should relate to innovative teaching practices in one or more of these areas:
- teaching approaches
- lesson or course sequencing
- developing learning outcomes
- effective ways to explain principles and concepts
- ways to engage students
- methods of assessments
- in-class activities
Please submit an outline of around 100–200 words to email@example.com by 22 December 2023, including:
- your name
- institutional affiliation, if relevant
- the title of your presentation
- the practice you are sharing
- its impact (e.g., student, colleague feedback, other impacts)
- advice you would give others wishing to adopt it.
A small editorial team at Accounting Cafe will review your submission. It is a light touch process that focuses on the extent to which the contribution meets the guidelines and has the potential to interest our audience. Don’t expect the sort of feedback you might receive from a journal or academic conference.
If we cannot accommodate your submission at the symposium, we may consider it for publication on the Accounting Cafe website. In this case, we will ask you to prepare an article that meets our Guidelines for Contributors.
