  • Here's to a successful #iasmidyear2016
    blog entry posted February 26, 2016 by Gia M Chevis, tagged international, research 

    The section's midyear meeting, held in New Orleans, was another wonderful success.  With approximately half of attendees hailing from places outside the U.S., it was a great opportunity to meet new people and reconnect with old friends.  Under Hollis Skaife's leadership, the Doctoral Consortium team welcomed many new researchers to the IAS family on Thursday to kick off the meeting.  Mark Holtzblatt and Eva Jermakowicz hosted an excellent CPE on fighting fraud; the handouts are attached to this post.  Friday and Saturday were filled with excellent speakers and concurrent sessions, with a fabulous dinner at Mulate's on Friday night.  Alta Prinsloo headlined a panel discussion on the IFAC and the importance of research evidence for standard setters, moderated by Katherine Schipper;  Bruce Behn laid out his vision for the future of the AAA.  Two Best Paper Awards were presented: one to Herita Akamah of the University of Oklahoma, and the other to Maria Vulcheva of Florida International University.

    Many, many thanks to Elaine Henry, Gina Rosa, and Wendy Wilson for their tireless efforts!!

    The Third International Conference of the Journal of International Accounting Research (JIAR)
    July 20 and 21, Sao Paulo, Brazil
    Submission Deadline: February 15, 2015 (early submission is encouraged)


    Increasing the Scope and Impact of International Accounting Research

    Keynote Speakers
    Ray Ball, University of Chicago
    Bruce Behn, President-Elect AAA, University of Tennessee


    The goal of this conference is to expand the scope and impact of international accounting research, through increased understanding and awareness of the challenges and opportunities of international accounting. Original and rigorous research work will provide academics, practitioners and regulators with deeper insights into international accounting issues. While the journal continues to welcome innovative and high quality research that examines how accounting data affects capital market participants, one of the goals of the 3rd Journal of International Accounting Research (JIAR) conference is to increase the scope and impact of international accounting research. We hope by having the conference in Latin America, we will receive high quality research from that area, as well as other areas of the world. Papers that address interesting and innovative research questions in all areas are welcomed.

    Papers addressing issues such as the following are particularly welcomed for plenary sessions:
    1. How and why the contractual and regulatory uses of accounting data vary across countries.
    2. The use of accounting data in international trade and cross-border mergers.
    3. The effects of IFRS adoption on uses of accounting data in transitional and emerging economies including, but not limited to, capital markets and contracts.
    4. How and why the effects of IFRS adoption on uses of accounting data varies across countries.
    5. The challenges of management and control in a global world.
    6. The relevance of methods and paradigms from cross-cultural psychology and international business to international accounting.
    7. The development of accounting academics throughout the world and their challenges.
    8. The development of an international accounting profession and it challenges; including ethics, education, enforcement, language, etc.

    Papers can be submitted for consideration in one of two tracks: Plenary Session submissions or Concurrent Session submissions. For the Plenary Sessions, please submit papers that are on international accounting issues (suitable for JIAR). We accept papers in all areas of accounting for the Concurrent Sessions. Papers can be submitted in English, Portuguese or Spanish.
