All submitted papers will receive double-blind review. Sessions will include three or four research papers with discussant(s). Each presenter/discussant will have approximately 20-25 minutes.. Papers accepted to papers sessions will be considered for the following awards:

Dialogue sessions provide an opportunity for researchers to present papers and cases that are in a developmental stage. Authors should indicate their interest in presenting in a Dialogue Session if they have specific issues or areas for further development they would like to discuss with fellow presenters and an audience. Researchers should submit their working papers along with a cover page that includes two or three carefully crafted questions that address specific issues of concern to the researcher. (Do NOT include author identifying information on the cover page.) For example, is there another statistical technique that could improve the data analysis? Are there additional variables that might influence the statistical outcomes? Dialogue sessions will allow presentation and dialogue for five papers with each presenter having 20 minutes for presentation and dialogue. The discussion will be facilitated by the Dialogue Facilitator and each presenter in the session will have access to a copy of each other presenter's submitted paper for dialogue contribution. Presenters and audience members will be asked for suggestions to improve the working papers in the session. Papers may be on any topical area of accounting using analytical, experimental, archival, behavioral, or any other approach. Papers can have an academic, practitioner or pedagogical focus. All submitted papers will receive double-blind review.
