The purpose of this workshop is to promote the application of economic analysis in accounting research. Following the great success of several previous workshops in a row, this workshop again offers a forum to thoroughly discuss recent research using this methodology.
Economic analysis is an important research tool to structure the research process and derive powerful insights into accounting procedures and institutions. Over the years, it has been successfully used to analyse a wide variety of issues within financial and managerial accounting, auditing, and corporate governance. The models provide convenient structures to analyse stewardship uses of information, budgeting, intra- and inter-organisational relationships, and interactions between accounting information and markets.
Participants are invited to present their own work in the field, to provide a formal discussion of papers presented by other participants, or to simply participate in the discussions. The benefit of participating is to present and get feedback to own research, to be on the forefront of the research, and to discuss issues related to economic analysis.
Research papers covering any topics in financial and managerial accounting are welcome. The following list provides illustrative examples:
* Economic consequences of accounting methods, e.g., conservatism and fair value accounting
While the focus of this Workshop is on papers that use economic modelling, papers that empirically test economic models are welcome as well.
It is intended that each paper accepted for presentation will be assigned a discussant to enhance a thorough discussion of the papers.
Extended abstracts will be considered but preference will be given to full papers received by the deadline. In case of the submission of an abstract, the full paper must be received by April 15, 2010 at latest to provide discussants with enough time to prepare.
