BACKGROUND

The purpose of this workshop is to promote the application of economic analysis in accounting research. Following the great success of ten 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. It has been successfully used to analyse a wide variety of issues that are related to information asymmetry and potential conflicts of interests between involved people and groups of people. The models provide convenient structures to analyse financial accounting, managerial accounting, auditing, and corporate governance themes.

Participants are invited to present their own work in the field, to provide a formal discussion of papers presented by other participants, or to attend presentations and participate in the discussions. The benefit of participation 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.
 

CALL FOR PAPERS

Research papers covering any topics in financial and managerial accounting are welcome. The following list provides examples of areas of particular interest:
 

  • Economic consequences of accounting methods, e.g., conservatism and fair value accounting
  • Earnings management
  • Economic effects of accounting standards and standard setting
  • Disclosure of accounting information
  • Interaction of accounting and capital markets
  • Performance evaluation and performance measures
  • Management compensation
  • Value-based management
  • Budgeting and transfer pricing
  • Economic roles of auditing
  • Accounting and corporate governance.


While the focus of this Workshop is on papers that use economic modelling, papers that are strongly based on economic models and empirically test their predictions, such as archival and experimental research, are also welcome.

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, 2012 at latest to provide discussants with sufficient time to prepare.

THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS OVER
