The faculty comprises prominent academics in the field. Their names will be announced later.


The 36th EAA Doctoral Colloquium will take place at the Ramada Plaza by Wyndham Bucharest Convention Center Hotel on 23-26 May 2020 immediately prior to the EAA Annual Congress.


For the 36th consecutive year, a colloquium for doctoral students in accounting will be organised in conjunction with the Annual Congress of the European Accounting Association. The 2020 EAA Doctoral Colloquium will take place on 23-26 May immediately before the EAA Annual Congress.

The event starts on the evening of Saturday 23 May and ends on Tuesday 26 May mid-afternoon. All participating students are required to attend the EAA Congress that starts on 27 May 2020.

The aim of the Doctoral Colloquium is to provide an opportunity for European doctoral students in accounting to present and discuss their research with a distinguished international faculty. The faculty will also give some plenary sessions about a range of issues relevant for PhD students, such as about the journal submission and review process; the 'job market' and early career; reviewing and presenting, and similar topics. There also are social events to provide an opportunity for students to interact informally with each other and the faculty.

Students selected to participate in the Doctoral Colloquium are offered hotel accommodation for the duration of the colloquium (Saturday, Sunday and Monday evenings). They also do not have to pay the registration fee for the EAA Annual Congress held immediately after the Colloquium on 27-29 May 2020. However, students must cover their own travel costs as well as accommodation expenses for the EAA Annual Congress.

Please submit your application as soon as possible and certainly no later than 15 November 2019.

Applications are online and must be contain a CV, an extended 3-page abstract of the doctoral research currently being undertaken, and a questionnaire completed by the main thesis advisor. Your advisor must use the template provided - download template. 

Students accepted for the Doctoral Colloquium will be required to prepare a full paper for presentation at the colloquium following the typical format of research papers in accounting (or their sub-areas where conventions vary). PhD students who have progressed beyond their second year are the most likely to benefit from the colloquium. 
Accordingly, we only encourage later-stage doctoral students in their third or fourth year of the PhD to apply.

The organising Institutions—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, it also establishes and enhances a network of international contacts between younger accounting researchers, and between them and established scholars.
