Emerging Researchers Consortium in Accounting – Call for Applications

July 13 & 14, 2022
Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona School of Management (Spain)

Applications are now welcome to attend the Emerging Researchers Consortium in Accounting. This 3-half-day event will be conducted by Professors Prof Eva Labro (U of North Carolina), Prof Beatriz Garcìa Osma (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid) and Prof Stefano Cascino (London School of Economics).

The ERC aims at exposing emerging scholars to the most current and relevant research trends in accounting. The three sessions are conducted by established researchers in different fields, and participants will be able to get feedback on their research projects. Each session will feature the following format: (i) a masterclass led by the resident faculty on a specific topic in accounting; (ii) a presentation round in which researchers will present their work and receive feedback.

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 May 1st, 2022.

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 a substantial part of the submission. Discuss the data gathering process, introduce key variables and illustrate the analyses you intend to carry out;

(iv) Expected Results & Contribution. A preview will suffice.

We encourage all those in attendance to stay on for the JLFA Conference (July 14-15). Places for both events are limited and anyone wishing to attend should register as soon as possible.
