Call for Submissions

The 2012 AAA Northeast Regional Meeting will be held at the Marriott Hotel, Providence, RI, on October 18–20, 2012. The hotel has free parking and easy access right off Interstate 95; the Amtrak/MBTA station is within walking distance. The hotel is also conveniently accessed via taxi or shuttle from the Providence (PVD) area airport, or via bus or train from the Boston (BOS) airport an hour’s drive north. Providence has an abundance of award winning restaurants, art and theater venues, historical sites, and river walks.

Accounting educators, students and professionals are invited to submit completed manuscripts and ideas for panels or workshops for presentation at the meeting. Papers may encompass any topical area of accounting and may be theoretical or practice-oriented. Accounting education papers and cases are strongly encouraged for submission. All papers submitted will be sent out for blind review. A rolling review process will begin on June 1, with a final (hard) submission deadline of July 1, 2012.

The program will be structured around the best submissions and we are anticipating interesting speakers and CPE programs.

Awards: There will be Best Paper Awards for a paper by a current Doctoral Student, a paper by a New Faculty member (within three years of earning a PhD), and a paper submitted to the Teaching Learning and Curriculum section. See below for additional details.
