Global Thought Leadership
The theme for our 2010 meeting is "Global Thought Leadership." The AAA's strategic plan emphasizes our vision of Thought Leadership. We accomplish this through our research, education, and input on accounting policies and standard setting. Today we need to think more about how we provide accounting thought leadership in a global economy. More and more countries are moving to adopt one global set of financial reporting standards, the largest accounting firms and corporations are multinational, accreditation crosses international borders, and many of our colleges and universities are partnering with schools from other countries. In our 2010 AAA meeting, we will celebrate and explore global thought leadership in accounting.
On July 31-August 4, 2010, the American Accounting Association (AAA) will hold its Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California. The Program Advisory Committee for the 2010 Annual Meeting of the AAA invites academic and practitioner members from around the world to submit the following:
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.
Introduced last year, the well-received Paper Dialogue Sessions will be featured again at the 2010 meeting. These concurrent sessions are designed to be highly interactive, allowing authors to receive direct feedback from audience members.
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.
The Emerging and Innovative Research Projects Sessions are designed to highlight new research that is outside the traditional boundaries of accounting research.
The Continuing Professional Education (CPE) sessions comprise full- and half-day workshops, providing opportunities for in-depth attention and study of more complex issues and topics.
The Conference on Teaching and Learning in Accounting (CTLA) is designed for new and experienced faculty looking for opportunities to refine their teaching talents and perfect their craft in teaching accounting.
Volunteers are needed to serve as reviewers, paper discussants, and session moderators. If you are submitting a paper or proposal for the 2010 Annual Meeting, please consider "giving back" to the community by volunteering to serve in one or more of these roles.
