Poster Session Presentation Guidelines

Seeds of Innovation
The theme for the 2012 AAA Annual Meeting is "Seeds of Innovation." This theme focuses on the broad need for greater innovation in accounting scholarship. The hope is to engage all members in a conversation about how better to enhance the discipline as a whole in terms of intellectual vitality. While much of the format for the 2012 meeting will be similar to recent AAA annual meetings, it is expected that an important component will focus on new developments in related fields as well as new means for educating the students entrusted to us. The aspiration for the 2012 AAA Annual Meeting is to provide an exemplary resource for members to gain new knowledge and develop their long-term scholarly interests.

Volunteers: Consistent with the conference theme, the Program Advisory Committee strongly encourages all members to consider volunteering to serve as reviewers, paper discussants, and session moderators. If you are submitting a paper or proposal for the 2012 Annual Meeting, please consider "giving back" to the community by volunteering to serve in one or more of these roles.

Concurrent Paper and Research Forum Sessions — Submissions are closed.
Submissions are made by section/topic area. Submissions to any section that are deemed to be within the purview of another section category will be redirected to the more appropriate section for review. It is considered an abuse of valuable reviewer and liaison time to submit the same paper to more than one area.

Concurrent Panel Sessions — Submissions are closed.
Submissions are made by section/topic area. Submitters are responsible for populating the panel, extending invitations, and hosting participants, as appropriate.

Emerging and Innovative Research Sessions — Submissions are closed.
These sessions are intended to highlight promising emerging and innovative research ideas. Authors will submit a short abstract of three to four pages that describes their work in progress or a planned session that will bring ideas currently outside accounting to the attention of accounting scholars.

New Scholar Concurrent Sessions — Submissions are closed.
New Scholar Concurrent Sessions provide junior faculty members constructive feedback on their research prior to submission. Faculty earning their Ph.D. in 2007 or after and current Ph.D. students are eligible to submit papers for consideration. Submitted papers in this category are peer reviewed. Senior researchers in each area will critique papers accepted for the New Scholar Concurrent sessions and provide feedback in small interactive sessions with authors. In addition, individuals whose papers are accepted for the New Scholar Concurrent Sessions will be asked to review and critique another accepted paper.

Pre-conference Symposia and Workshops (CPE Sessions) — Submissions are closed.
These sessions comprise full- and half-day workshops, providing opportunities for in-depth attention and study of more complex issues and topics.
