Emerging Researchers Consortium in Accounting (June 26-27, 2019)

Call for Applications

Applications are now welcome to attend the Emerging Researchers Consortium in Accounting. This 2-day event will be conducted by Christine Botosan, and Professors Ilan Guttman and Shiva Rajgopal.

Questions, Theories and Research Design in Accounting Research: Searching for the Fit

The ERC aims at exposing emerging scholars to the most current and relevant research in accounting conducted by top-quality researchers, and letting participants interact and getting feedback on their research projects. The sessions will have the following format: (i) three key note speeches lead by the faculties in residence; (ii) a session in which emerging researchers and PhD students will present their work and receive feedback from the faculties in residence.

Application Process:
The consortium is open to all PhD students and emerging researchers (max three years from the award of the PhD) in Accounting. Applicants should submit a summary (max 2,000 words) of their research project (either a working paper or extracts of the PhD thesis) before April 15th, 2019.
The submission should be structured (preferably) as follows: (i) Motivation/Research Questions;
(ii) Theory and Hypotheses. Development (do not use too much space to review extant literature but motivate your hypotheses/propositions); (iii) Methods and Research Design. We expect this to be the most substantial part of the submission. Discuss the data gathering process, introduce your key variables and illustrate the analyses you intend to carry out; (iv) Expected Results & Contribution.

Attendance to the consortium attracts a fee of Euros 150 that will cover meals and teaching materials; participants will cover their own travel and accommodation costs. We encourage all consortium attendees to stay on for the 2-day conference and dinner on June 27 and 28 (at no extra costs). Places for both events are limited and anyone wishing to attend should register as soon as possible.
