2024 Auditing Section Doctoral Consortium 

Thursday, January 11, 2024
New Orleans Marriott, New Orleans, Louisiana

The Auditing Section of the American Accounting Association is sponsoring the Annual Auditing Section Doctoral Consortium. The Consortium is Thursday afternoon, January 11, 2024.  The Consortium will be held at the New Orleans Marriott in New Orleans, Louisiana in conjunction with the Auditing Section's Midyear Conference (to be held January 11-13, 2024). 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
All Ph.D. students who have an interest in auditing research are eligible to apply.

Doctoral Student Registration Information
There is no cost to apply and no registration fee for Consortium. Any student wishing to attend must complete the application process. The deadline for Consortium applications is September 29, 2023.

The organizers will issue invitations to attend by October 27, 2023, and alternates will also be notified in case any invited students decide not to attend. To apply for an invitation to the Consortium, complete the online application.  You can access the application here.

Please note that the application for the Consortium is separate from registration for the Auditing Section Midyear Conference which follows the Consortium.

Hotel Accommodations and Information
The Consortium runs from 1:00 pm- 5:15 pm and is followed by a Consortium Reception and Welcome Reception. Students who attend the Consortium are eligible for the conference rate at the New Orleans Marriott on Wednesday and Thursday nights (January 10-11, 2024).   

Students should make their reservations directly with the hotel.  The deadline for hotel reservations is December 19th but we cannot guarantee that any additional rooms will be available in the hotel once our block of rooms is sold out, even if the block is sold out before the deadline, so we advise making your hotel reservations early. If a student is unable to attend the meeting, the hotel reservations must be cancelled in advance to avoid a penalty.

Consortium Cancellation Policy
Students must cancel their Consortium registration if unable to attend. This will allow another student who is wait-listed to attend the Consortium. To cancel a registration, please notify, via email, the AAA (info@aaahq.org) and Bradley Bennett, gbbennett@isenberg.umass.edu as early as possible.

Americans with Disabilities Act
The American Accounting Association intends to comply fully with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
