Please consider submitting to the conference any of the following:
- Research Papers. (empirical, behavioral, pedagogical, etc.) that deal with topics relevant to fraud, forensics, or investigative accounting.
- Teaching Cases. in fraud, forensics, or investigative accounting. These papers will either be included in our "hands-on" sessions in which you will lead participants through the case as if they were students in your class or will be included in a poster session.
- Class Materials. We will also have a forum for class materials where you can share unique projects you do in your class that you are willing to share with others.
- Research in Progress. We will have a research in progress session where individuals can present research proposals, pilot studies, or other unfinished projects. If you are looking for feedback on your project this is the place to present your idea. Submit a proposal and outline for consideration.
- Panel Discussions. If you have a relevant idea for a panel discussion and are willing to find and organize the participants, please submit a short write-up of your idea and send via email to Meghann Cefaratti.
- Video. If you have created an original video, or use video in your forensic accounting class and can share your approach, please submit a write-up and link to your video (if possible). Video submissions should be sent via email to Meghann Cefaratti. The deadline for video submissions is Monday, November 27, 2017.
We strongly encourage Ph.D. Students and their advisors to submit work in progress to consider for presentation or the forum. If you are a Ph.D. student (or advisor), please include this information in the field labeled "Additional Information I do not know" on the submission form.
Research papers include the requirement to submit just one file in PDF format. Each submission will be blind-reviewed, so the file should NOT contain any author identification information.
