Topic: Understanding Why Blockchain is a Juggernaut

Speaker: Jürgen Sidgman, Professor – University of Wisconsin Oshkosh


Although blockchain is an emergent technology, whether by hype or real potential, its popularity in accounting cannot be overstated. Nevertheless, a recent PwC survey on adoption of financial technology (FinTech) reports that while 56% of survey respondents are aware of the importance of blockchain, 83% confess to be ,at best, moderately familiar with the technology.

 Therefore, in this presentation, our speaker will cover the following topics:

  • An in-depth overview of what constitutes a blockchain
  • What are the circumstances that make the use of a blockchain appropriate?
  • What are potential uses for blockchain in accounting?
  • What are the potential threats that affect blockchains?


About our Speaker:

Prior to beginning his career in academia, Jürgen worked as a financial auditor for Grant Thornton (Chile). Jürgen has taught accounting courses at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. Currently, Jürgen is part of the accounting faculty at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh (UWO). His primary teaching interests are accounting information systems and Auditing. However, he also teaches other accounting subjects as needed and online graduate accounting classes for the UW Consortium.  

Jürgen’s research interests lie at the intersection of accounting and technology involving a variety of topics that include privacy, computer mediated communication, information accuracy, and new technologies such as blockchain.

Cancellation Policy:
Meetings require a guaranteed headcount. That means if someone makes a meeting reservation and then does not attend, your chapter has to absorb the costs associated with that reservation. Unfortunately your chapter has experienced an increase in no-shows. As a result, your Board has decided that pre-payment will be required for all meetings. Unless cancellation is received prior to the reservation cut-off date, a member will be responsible for payment even if they do not attend the meeting. Exceptions due to certain extenuating circumstances may be granted on a case by case basis at the discretion of your Board. Weather-related cancellations are at the descretion of the current president and the meeting's speaker. Refunds will be dependent on venue and other conditions and will be evaluated as required.

Additionally, there are a number of benefits to being an IMA member. One of those benefits should always be the ability to attend a meeting for less cost than a non-member. Accordingly the chapter will begin enforcing the non-member pricing policy.
