12TH WORKSHOP ON ACCOUNTING AND ECONOMICS


TILBURG, THE NETHERLANDS, JUNE 23-24, 2016
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, this workshop again offers a forum to thoroughly discuss current 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 (groups of) involved 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 on your own research, to be exposed to other’s work that is on the forefront of economics based accounting research, and to discuss issues related to economic analysis.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Research papers covering any topics in financial accounting, auditing, tax 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
  • 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, empirical papers that are strongly based on economic theory are also welcome.
