The Faculty will be composed of prominent figures in the field. Their names will be announced later.


The 34th EAA Doctoral Colloquium will take place in the Palace Grand Hotel Varese.

The Palace Grand Hotel Varese is located in the middle of a park on the hill of Campigli. Varese is a charming Northern Italian city that sits on the Swiss border, near Milan (60km from the city).


For the 34th consecutive year a Colloquium for Doctoral Students in Accounting will be organised in conjunction with the Annual Congress of the European Accounting Association. The 2018 Colloquium will take place on 26-29 May immediately before the EAA Annual Congress.

The event will start on the evening of Saturday, 26 May, and will finish on Tuesday, 29 May at lunchtime. All participating students are required to attend the EAA Congress that will commence on 30 May 2018.

The aim of the Colloquium is to provide an opportunity for European doctoral students in accounting to present and discuss their research with a distinguished international faculty. Overviews of the current state of the accounting research will also be included in the programme of the Colloquium, as will social events which will provide an opportunity for students to interact informally both with each other and the faculty.

The core faculty proposed for the Colloquium will be composed of leading researchers in the field.

Students selected to participate in the Colloquium will be offered hotel accommodation for the duration of the Colloquium (Saturday, Sunday and Monday evenings). Moreover, they will not have to pay the registration fee for the Congress of the European Accounting Association that will be held immediately after the Colloquium on 30 May - 1 June 2018. Participants are expected to meet their own travel costs and accommodation expenses for the duration of the Congress.

Applications should be submitted as soon as possible and certainly no later than 15 November 2017.

Applications should be submitted online and must be accompanied by a one-page C.V., a maximum 3-page abstract of the doctoral research currently being undertaken, and a questionnaire to be filled in by the main thesis advisor. You must use this template to that end - download template. Students accepted for the Colloquium will be required to prepare a short paper for presentation at the meeting. PhDs students who have progressed beyond their first year are the most likely to benefit from the Colloquium.

The organising Institutions, i.e. the European Accounting Association (EAA) and the European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM), attach considerable importance to the Doctoral Colloquium. Not only does the Colloquium provide a way of stimulating sound doctoral research, but it also establishes and enhances a network of cross-national contacts between younger accounting researchers, and between researchers and practitioners.
