Rutgers Business School's 47th World Continuous Auditing & Reporting Symposium


The Rutgers Business School's 47th World Continuous Auditing & Reporting Symposium (WCARS) will be held on Friday, November 8, 2019 and Saturday, November 9, 2019 at Rutgers Business School in Newark, New Jersey.  Special emphasis this year will be Disruptive Innovation in 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.  The conference always fills to capacity—with 165 attendees last year and a similar number expected this year—the majority of participants coming from the internal audit departments of leading businesses and governmental organizations, as well from the vendor community.  In particular, commercial firms in the IT space often appear along with their lead customers in order to demonstrate their product’s ROI and best practices.  The conference is also live stream cast to a global audience.

The general symposium fee is $399.  ISACA members, however, get a $50 discount off the general symposium fee.  That means ISACA members pay $349. On October 25th these rates will increase $50.

So do not delay and register today!
