Accounting educators, students and professionals are invited to submit completed manuscripts and ideas for panels for the 2012 AAA Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting. Papers may encompass any topical area of accounting and may be theoretical or practice-oriented. Awards will also be given for the best manuscript, as well as the best manuscript by a doctoral student. Papers may also have been submitted to the American Accounting Association National meeting, but should not have been published before the Mid-Atlantic meeting.
The conference will begin on Thursday April 19 with a daylong seminar for doctoral students and junior faculty — featuring Betsy Gordon, Katherine Schipper, John Core, Bill Baber and Jennifer Blouin; and concurrently, CPE Workshop sessions. The conference will continue with presentations and panels on Friday, April 20 and Saturday April 21. The meeting will be held at the DOUBLE-TREE CITY CENTER, Philadelphia. A limited number of hotel rooms have been set aside for conference participants at the rate of $189 per night single or double occupancy.
