Call for Papers
2006 ABO Research Conference
October 6-7, 2006
The 2006 ABO conference will be held October 6-7, 2006 in downtown Portland, Oregon at the historic Multnomah Hotel. We are excited to announce several new features of the conference: a PhD Consortium, Emerging Scholar Sessions, and a format change.
PhD Consortium: Friday morning will feature a Consortium for PhD students interested in doing behavioral work. Bryan Church will lead the session which will include presentations and discussions with leading behavioral researchers on topics such as managing an academic career and generating and publishing good behavioral research. PhD students will pay no registration fee for the PhD Consortium or the Research Conference. Details will be sent to program directors.
Emerging scholars submission: This year we are pleased to include an Emerging Scholars session at the conference. This session will showcase the work of new scholars while providing them with detailed constructive feedback on their papers through the assignment of more senior discussants. Faculty who have graduated within the past three years and doctoral students are encouraged to submit their work to this session. Please include a note with your submission to indicate "emerging scholars" submission. Submissions to the Emerging Scholars session will also be considered for inclusion in regular conference research sessions.
Format change: To encourage high quality discussion and interaction during sessions, we will use a new format this year. Two papers will be presented in each concurrent session with a discussant for each. Papers will be available online prior to the conference as well. We hope participants and presenters will enjoy the more in-depth discussions that are made possible by a more informed audience.
Submission procedures: All submissions should be made electronically. Email submissions to Anne Magro (email@example.com). The manuscript should be submitted in .pdf format with all author identification removed from the document; for field surveys or experiments, please submit an instrument. Please include author(s) and institution affiliation(s) in the email.
The deadline for submission is Friday, June 30, 2006. Submitted papers should not have been accepted for publication at the time of the submission. Papers should follow the style guidelines for American Accounting Association publications. The submission fee is $25.00 (no fee for doctoral students). Please contact Anne Magro for information about submitting your fee. Selection of conference papers will be announced by August 20, 2006 and papers will be available on the ABO website by September 1.
