The Rutgers Business School's 38th World Continuous Auditing & Reporting Symposium (WCARS) will be held on Friday, November 4, 2016 and Saturday, November 5, 2016 at Rutgers Business School in Newark, New Jersey. Special emphasis this year will be Analytics in Auditing and Accounting. You are invited to attend this leading forum for the discussion of research and practice into the application of technology to auditing and reporting. In particular, this year’s conference will highlight the recently announced Rutgers AICPA Data Analytics Research Initiative (RADAR), which seeks to develop automated techniques and data analytics to apply to the financial statement audit.

The general symposium fee is $375 if registration is received before October 17th, 2016.  ISACA members, however, get a $50 discount off the general symposium fee.  That means ISACA members pay $325 for registrations received on or before October 17th.  After October 17th, all registrants have to pay additional $50.

Rutgers Accounting Research Center is reserving 20 seats for NJ ISACA and
in prior years, they filled up fast.
