Call for Submissions

The Twenty-third Annual Auditing Section Midyear Meeting will be held January 12-14, 2017, at The Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, Florida. The meeting will consist of keynote, plenary, and concurrent sessions dealing with a wide variety of contemporary topics related to audit, attestation and assurance practices, education, and research.

We encourage you to contribute to the program by submitting papers and volunteering to coordinate panel discussions. We also encourage you to volunteer as a reviewer, discussant, and session moderator.

Paper Submission Information: 
Submissions can include auditing/attestation/assurance research and education papers (including instructional cases). Submissions must be completed by 11:59 pm EDT on Monday, September 19, 2016. With over 150 submissions each year all submitting authors and co-authors are expected to volunteer as reviewers.

Awards for Best Paper and Best PhD Student Paper will be conferred at the conference. Authors must indicate that they would like to be considered for the Best PhD Student Paper award at the time of submission. Nominated papers can be co-authored with a faculty member; however, if selected the student is expected to present the paper. All papers submitted to the conference will be considered for the Best Paper award.

Research papers should follow the style and submission guidelines of Auditing: A Journal of Practice & Theory, except the requirement to submit separate electronic files containing the cover page and the paper itself. Only one file may be uploaded and should contain the body of your paper. Submitted papers are subject to blind review.  Prior to submission, please remove all author identifying details. Instructional cases should be in a format similar to that used in Issues in Accounting Education.

Papers accepted for presentation at the 2017 Auditing Section Midyear Meeting may also be submitted for consideration at the AAA Annual Meeting in August 2017. Papers are not eligible if they have been published or accepted for publication.
