First Call for
Annual Conference 2013, Frankfurt/Main, Germany
Accounting Research: Diversity within Unity
Accounting Section of the German Academic Association for Business Research (AS-VHB) together
with the International Association for Accounting Education and Research (IAAER) are sponsoring this conference on
February 14 – 16, 2013 Hosted at the office buildings of Ernst & Young, Germany, Frankfurt/Main - Eschborn
In the aftermath of the financial crisis of 2008, accounting researchers, regulatory acounting bodies, and accountancy organizations all over the world focus on the need to create an augmented awareness and a deepened understanding of how today’s business challenges can be addressed. At
the same time, accounting research is faced with a broad number of research strands, covering financial as well as managerial accounting and control issues not only with traditional analytical and empirical/archival research methods, but also increasingly with behavioral approaches. With this conference, we aim at bringing together the multitude of research facets within accounting.
Papers are invited on managerial and financial accounting and auditing, including national and international accounting regulation, standard?setting, management control, corporate governance, ethical issues, financial management, risk management, tax accounting, accounting history, accounting education issues, behavioral accounting as well as other related topics in the private and public sector. Authors are invited to submit theoretical as well as empirical and normative papers. Independent reviewers will referee all submitted papers. Symposia with distinguished keynote speakers will cover important areas in financial accounting as well as managerial accounting and control, thus bringing together conference participants for vivid discussions and exchanges on the multiple facets of modern accounting research and policy?making.
To be eligible for presentation, full papers must be written in English and submitted via our ad hoc paper submission system no later than September 15, 2012. Please follow the instructions on the conference website www.rech2013.de which will go active late May. Authors will be notified of
acceptance by October 31, 2012. Best Paper Awards will be provided for both papers in the financial accounting/auditing and managerial accounting/management control track.
Fast-track review processes will be provided for submissions to selected high-quality accounting journals, i.e., Accounting Education: An international journal, Business Research (BuR), Journal of International Financial Management and Accounting (JIFMA), and Journal of Management Control (JoMaC).
