Call for Submissions and Volunteers
Seventeenth Annual Midyear Auditing Section Conference
Mark your calendars now for the Seventeenth Annual Midyear Auditing Section Conference that will be held January 13–15, 2011 at the Albuquerque Marriott. A Doctoral Consortium will be held on January 13, and we will also be offering another Excellence in Audit Education workshop as part of the conference. The remainder of the conference will consist of keynote speakers, panel discussions, and concurrent sessions dealing with a wide variety of contemporary topics related to audit, attestation and assurance practices, education, and research. Awards will be given for the Best Ph.D. Student Paper submitted to the conference and for the Best Manuscript submitted to the conference. While all papers will be considered for the Best Manuscript award, authors must indicate that they would like to be considered for the Best Ph.D. Student Paper award at the time of submission.
You are encouraged to contribute to the program through submissions of auditing, attestation, and assurance research, education research (including instructional cases), and special session proposals. In addition, the Section will rely on your help in planning and conducting the conference and in providing suggestions for session topics, panels, and/or workshops. Please consider volunteering to participate as a reviewer, discussant, and/or moderator. Details on how to do so will be posted to the Auditing Section website.
Research papers should follow the style and submission guidelines of Auditing: A Journal of Practice & Theory, including the requirement to submit separate electronic files containing the cover page and the paper itself.¹ Instructional cases should be in a format similar to that used in Issues in Accounting Education. Submissions are not eligible for consideration if they have been published or accepted for publication, were presented at the 2010 AAA Annual Meeting, or were presented at more than one AAA regional meeting or other academic conference. Papers presented at the Research Forum of the AAA Annual Meeting are eligible for consideration. It should be noted that papers accepted for presentation at the 2011 Midyear Auditing Section Conference may also be submitted for presentation at the AAA Annual Meeting scheduled for August 2011.
Submissions must be received by August 31, 2010 to be considered for the program. Early submission is highly encouraged. Any questions should be addressed to Scott Vandervelde (University of South Carolina) or Mike Wilkins (Texas A&M University) through the following email address: MYM2011@moore.sc.edu.
¹Also, please be sure to remove all identification of the authors, including changing the document "Properties" to "anonymous".
