The Third International Conference of the Journal of International Accounting Research (JIAR)

Submission Deadline: February 15, 2015 (early submission is encouraged)
Increasing the Scope and Impact of International Accounting Research
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.
