The Auditing Section of the American Accounting Association, through the generous support of KPMG LLP, is sponsoring the Annual Auditing Section Doctoral Consortium on January 12, 2012. The Consortium will be held in the Marriott Savannah Riverfront in Savannah, Georgia in conjunction with the Auditing Section's Mid-Year Conference (to be held January 12-14, 2012). The purpose of the Consortium is to stimulate students' research by exposing them to the latest ideas from leading researchers in auditing, and by providing opportunities for networking with other Ph.D. students interested in auditing, established auditing researchers, and journal editors.
Doctoral Student Eligibility
The Consortium is open to all Ph.D. students who have an interest in auditing research. Students may be at any stage in their program. There is a limit on the total number of students who can attend the Consortium. Applicants will be accepted on a first-come basis. Please note that we may have to limit the number of attendees from any one school if space constraints apply. Students who attend the Consortium will receive up to two years of complimentary membership in the Auditing Section and the AAA.
Doctoral Student Registration Information
The Auditing Section Doctoral Consortium is free. Any student wishing to attend must complete the registration process. For those students who would like to attend the Auditing Section Midyear Meeting (January 13-14) that follows the Consortium (January 12), the Midyear Meeting registration fee is $25.
