The 13th EARNet Symposium –September 11-13, 2025 – Vienna (Austria)

We are happy to announce that the 13th European Auditing Research Network (EARNet) Symposium will take place on September 12–13, 2025, in Vienna, Austria. Vienna, Austria’s capital, is the country’s most populous city, with nearly 1.9 million residents. Straddling the Danube River, it is celebrated for its imperial heritage and vibrant cultural scene. The city features historical landmarks like Schönbrunn Palace and the Hofburg. Recognized by UNESCO, Vienna’s famed coffee houses encapsulate its rich social fabric. Vienna is also a nexus of classical music, home to legendary composers like Beethoven and Mozart. Culturally rich, it offers a variety of operas and orchestras. Culinary enthusiasts can explore an array of traditional Austrian dishes and international cuisine.

The EARNet Symposium is a major event in Europe for the presentation and discussion of auditing research. A Ph.D. workshop precedes the symposium on Thursday, September 11th, 2025. At the Ph.D. workshop, young European researchers get feedback on their Ph.D. proposals or papers from experienced international scholars in auditing research.

For the first time, a workshop for early-to-mid-career faculty precedes the symposium on Thursday, September 11th, 2025. The workshop offers faculty an opportunity to interact with peers and more senior colleagues to discuss the new demands and challenges they encounter.
