Accounting at a Tipping Point
The theme of the 2009 meeting is "Accounting at a Tipping Point." The importance of accounting for our global society has become increasingly apparent in recent years. However, this importance is juxtaposed against the shrinking of our academic community and the narrowing of the accounting research domain. Yet, forces are in place to revive and renew the accounting academic community. In our 2009 AAA meeting we will celebrate the significance of accounting around the globe and explore opportunities for renewal of the accounting academy.
On August 1-5, 2009, the American Accounting Association (AAA) will hold its Annual Meeting in New York City. The Program Advisory Committee for the 2009 Annual Meeting of the AAA invites academic and practitioner members from around the globe to submit proposals for: papers, panels, forum presentations, Effective Learning Strategies sessions, CPE Sessions and special concurrent sessions, as well as to volunteer to serve as reviewers, moderators and discussants for meeting sessions.
The Committee is particularly interested in ideas for Concurrent Sessions that are highly innovative and bring fresh perspectives to bear on accounting research and education.
New concurrent sessions, named Paper Dialogue Sessions, are designed to be highly interactive, allowing authors to receive direct feedback from audience members.
The Emerging and Innovative Research Projects Sessions are designed to highlight new research that is outside the traditional boundaries of accounting research.
New Scholar Concurrent Sessions offer an excellent opportunity for new faculty and doctoral students to receive mentoring from senior scholars on promising working papers.
Effective Learning Strategies Sessions offer an interactive opportunity to share innovations supporting learning. For details on all types of submissions see the Call for Submissions.
