Call for Submissions
The Public Interest Section Midyear Meeting will be held April 1-2, 2016 at The Alfond Inn in Winter Park, FL (Orlando). The meeting will include a Doctoral/Early Scholar Consortium on Friday morning and plenary/panel and research paper sessions on Friday afternoon and Saturday. All attendees will receive breakfast, luncheon and a reception.
Doctoral students and early scholars are invited to participate in the Consortium on Friday morning, April 1. This consortium will focus on how contemporary issues (including accounting information systems, professional and business ethics, and social and environmental accounting and reporting) are linked to the public interest. Thanks to a generous sponsorship from the University of Central Florida's Kenneth G. Dixon School of Accounting, Doctoral/Early Scholar Consortium is free.
The common theme for the AAA Public Interest Section is how accounting research and education advance the public interest. The meeting will provide participants with an opportunity to showcase their research and participate in the discussion of others’ research in concurrent sessions, to hear from colleagues regarding contemporary developments in PI topics, and to collaborate with PI colleagues.
We welcome research papers on a wide variety of public interest research topics, perspectives and methods. We also welcome proposals for panel discussions on public interest topics for this meeting.
Two awards will be given, one for best paper overall and one for best paper from an early scholar. Papers accepted for concurrent sessions will be considered for these awards. Papers not accepted for concurrent sessions will be considered for the research forum.
