The Auditors Report


19th Symposium on Auditing Research
University of Illinois 
October 14-16, 2010

The Nineteenth University of Illinois Symposium on Auditing Research will be held on the Urbana-Champaign campus during October 14-16, 2010.   The symposium will be funded by generous support from the KPMG LLP Foundation.

While we invite papers about all aspects of auditing and assurance, a portion of The 19th Symposium will focus on the assessment of the risk of financial-statement fraud, the prevention and detection of financial-statement fraud, and the assignment of responsibility/culpability when fraud goes undetected. Papers should employ rigorous research methods (e.g., analytical, archival, experimental, and field). 

Submission deadline: July 9, 2010.

Authors should follow The Accounting Review format and submit a regular version and an anonymized version of their paper to Mark E. Peecher at Your email should identify contact information for the corresponding author and indicate, as applicable, other symposia or conferences at which the submitted paper has been or will be presented. 

Authors will be notified during late July as to whether submissions have been accepted for presentation at the symposium.  If you have any questions, please direct them to Mark E. Peecher.
