Call for Submissions

Brilliantly Disguised Opportunities
The theme for the 2013 Annual Meeting is "Brilliantly Disguised Opportunities" — focusing on understanding the many challenges on higher education's horizon and seeing them as opportunities in disguise. How will Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and the growing global demand for education change our lives as teachers? How will disappearing print journals, open access models, and other advances in scholarly publishing change our lives as researchers? How will the increasing demand for accountability and related financial pressures on tuition levels, student loan debt, state tax support and philanthropy change our colleges and universities? How can we help invent a better future? Come to Anaheim and join in the discussion.

Faculty-Student Collaborations in Accounting — Submission Deadline: May 5, 2013
The goal of this workshop is to explore and discuss collaborations between accounting faculty and undergraduate or masters students. The following are some examples of faculty-student collaborations:

  1. Research: Students and faculty working together on a research paper.
  2. Teaching: Joint development of teaching materials by students and faculty.
  3. Practice: Students and faculty working together to solve a real-world problem.

Volunteers: 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 2013 Annual Meeting, please consider "giving back" to the community by volunteering to serve in one or more of these roles.

Submissions are closed for the following areas:

Concurrent Paper and Research Forum Sessions — Submission Deadline: January 9, 2013
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. Please Note: Authors may submit more than one paper to the Annual Meeting. However, it is considered an abuse of valuable reviewer and liaison time to submit the same paper to more than one Section Designation. Submitting the same paper to multiple Sections will disqualify your submission from consideration.

Section-Sponsored Concurrent Panel Sessions — Submission Deadline: January 9, 2013
Submissions are made by section/topic area. Submitters are responsible for populating the panel, extending invitations, and hosting participants, as appropriate. Note: If your proposal is on a topic that is non-section or cross-section focused and of general, wide-spread interest to all members, please email your panel idea to one of the Team Leaders of the At-Large Sessions Team on the Program Advisory Committee.

New Scholar Concurrent Sessions — Submission Deadline: January 9, 2013
New Scholar Concurrent Sessions provide junior faculty members constructive feedback on their research prior to submission to academic journals. Faculty earning their Ph.D. in 2008 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.
