2021 Joint Midyear Meeting of the AIS and SET Sections

The 2021 Joint Midyear Meeting of the AIS and SET Sections will be held February 4-6, 2021. We are happy to announce our in-person conference will now transfer to a virtual setting while also preserving the key elements of our traditional program. Our members from around the world will be able to attend the meeting, interact with each other, and strengthen the work being shared. To make this a reality, we’ve designed and built a conference that lets you participate in sessions in a flexible and personalized way.

The meeting will be held jointly by two sections: Accounting Information Systems Section and Strategic and Emerging Technologies Section of the American Accounting Association. This meeting will include both separate and combined sessions, and the cross-section collaboration promises to offer new insights and inspirations for the coming decade.

We encourage authors to submit AIS/SET education-related research papers, case studies, and instructional resources. Awards will be presented for best submissions. Please submit directly to Joy Gray at jgray@bentley.edu and include “AIS/SET Midyear Submission” in the subject line.
The deadline to submit is Monday, November 30, 2020 at 11:59 pm EST.
