2016 Conference of the Public Interest Section and Doctoral/Early Scholar Consortium

Doctoral Student and Early Scholar Consortium

The Public Interest Section of the American Accounting Association is sponsoring a Public Interest Section Doctoral Student and Early Scholar Consortium in conjunction with the Public Interest Section's Midyear Meeting that is being held April 1-2, 2016 in Orlando (Winter Park), Florida. The Consortium will be held Friday morning prior to the start of the meeting. Breakfast will be provided during the consortium. The purpose of the Consortium is to stimulate students' and early scholars’ awareness of public interest research in accounting by providing a forum for discussion and opportunities for networking with other Ph.D. students and new scholars interested in public interest issues. During the morning sessions experienced public interest researchers will lead discussions on public interest research topics such as accounting ethics, accounting and public policy, and accounting in its social, political and organizational context. During the panel session, the experienced public interest researchers will answer questions from students and junior scholars. For additional information about the Public Interest Section Doctoral Student and Early Scholars Consortium contact Dana Wallace at dana.wallace@ucf.edu.

Doctoral Student and Early Scholar Eligibility

The Consortium is open to all Ph.D. students and recent Ph.D. graduates (Ph.D. granted within the past three years) who have a desire to learn more about public interest research in accounting and auditing. Students may be at any stage in their program. Early scholars may have been trained in any functional area and in any research methodology. There is a limit on the total number of students/recent graduates who can attend the Consortium. Applicants will be accepted on a first-come basis. Students/early scholars who attend the Consortium will receive two years of complimentary membership in the Public Interest Section of the AAA if they are current members of the AAA.
