The conference will consist of keynote speakers, concurrent sessions dealing with a wide variety of fraud, forensic, and investigative accounting topics, panel discussions, case work, and other scholarly/teaching activity.

Detailed submission requirements are listed below. The deadline has been extended to Wednesday, November 29 2023, 11:59 pm Eastern Time.

Please consider submitting to the conference any of the following:

  • Completed Research. All research (empirical, behavioral, pedagogical, etc.) relevant to fraud, forensics, or investigative accounting.
  • Teaching Cases. Cases relevant to fraud, forensics, or investigative accounting. These will either be included in our "hands-on" sessions in which you will lead participants through the case as if they were students in your class or will be included in a poster session.
  • Class Materials. We will also have a forum for class materials where you can present unique projects you use in your class that you are willing to share with others.
  • Research in Progress. Proposals, pilot studies, or other unfinished projects that you are still working on and would like feedback. This is the place to sound off those ideas to your peers. Submit a proposal and outline for consideration.
  • Panel Discussions. We welcome topics and ideas for panel discussions. You only need to find and organize the panel. To be considered, please submit a short write-up of your idea/topic and email to Alyssa Ong (Alyssa.ong@pepperdine.edu) and Jesus Jimenez-Andrade (jesus.jimenez@tamusa.edu).
