The 5th International Conference on Financial Criminology (ICFC 2013) serves as a continuation of the previous conferences held respectively at Putrajaya (2011), and Kuala Lumpur (2010). This conference continues to provide a platform to assist educators, practitioners and students to develop their skills, either academic or professional, in the fields of fraud examination and forensic accounting.

Spurred by positive feedback from past participants, the conference serves an opportunity for academicians and practitioners from various fields with inter-disciplinary interests to bridge the knowledge gap, promote scholarship, establish networking collaborations and to deliberate and share information on issues related to fraud.
