CALL FOR PAPERS

For the 22nd consecutive year a Colloquium for Doctoral Students in Accounting will be organised in conjunction with the Annual Congress of the European Accounting Association. The 2006 Colloquium will take place on March 18-21 just before the EAA Annual Congress. It will take place at the Irish Management Institute, a purpose built management training facility, located in the south Dublin suburb of Dundrum.

The event will start on Saturday evening March 18, and will finish on Tuesday March 21 at lunchtime. All participating students are also required to attend the EAA Congress that will commence on Wednesday March 22, 2006.

The Colloquium aims to provide an opportunity for European doctoral students in accounting to discuss their research and work in progress 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 is 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 March 22-24, 2006 (the latter is courtesy of the Congress organisers). Participants are expected to meet their own travel costs and accommodation expenses for the duration of the Congress (Tuesday through Friday).

Applications should be submitted as soon as possible and certainly no later than November 15, 2005.
Please note that the submission deadline is different from previous years !

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.

The submission deadline is over!

Both the sponsor KPMG and 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 it provide a way of stimulating sound doctoral research, but it also enhances the network of cross-national contacts between younger accounting researchers, and between researchers and practitioners.
