We are pleased to announce that the 2008 Midyear Meeting of the Financial Accounting and Reporting Section (FARS) will be held in Phoenix, AZ at the Pointe Hilton Hotel on January 25-26, 2008.
In organizing the FARS Midyear Meeting, the Section decided that two objectives should be achieved: (1) the conference should be open to and serve all members of the Section, and (2) a special effort should be made to provide opportunities for doctoral students and assistant professors with interests in financial accounting and reporting. As a result, the Section strongly encourages submissions that have been authored (or co-authored) and will be presented by assistant professors or doctoral students. To indicate that a submission meets this criteria, please include an asterisk (*) at the end of the title of the paper.
The deadline for submission of research papers is September 12, 2007. Papers must be submitted electronically through the SSRN conference management system at http://hq.ssrn.com/conference=AAA-FARS-2008. Please see below for information regarding the SSRN submission procedures. A blind review process will be used in selecting research papers to be presented at concurrent sessions during the conference. Acceptance decisions will be announced by December 1, 2007.
Individuals interested in volunteering to review papers or serve as a session discussant are encouraged to do so using the "Volunteer for the Conference" link on the SSRN Submission page (see url above).
