Dear Colleagues and Friends of the Accounting Summer Camp,
among the many side effects of the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 and restrictions to traveling and social gathering … we add another one: we have decided to
cancel the IV Edition of the Accounting Summer Camp (Padova, 24-26 June).
Whilst we fully appreciate this is a very minor problem compared to the tragedy affecting many people, we are still quite sad.
The Accounting Summer Camp builds on the strong interactions and social gatherings we ensured over the last years – hence we believe this is not an event we could run online.
Unfortunately there is no platform that allows sharing a true glass of wine, morning coffees and lunch (yet).

Looking forward to seeing you in 2021.

All the best.
Stay safe
Amedeo & Max

Applications are now welcome to attend the Emerging Researchers Consortium in Accounting. This 2-day event will be conducted by Professors Christine Botosan, David Veenman and DJ Nanda.

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

The ERC aims at exposing emerging scholars to the most current and relevant research trends in accounting conducted by top-quality researchers; three informal sessions will let participants interact and getting feedback on their research projects. The three sessions will have the following format: (i) a master-class led by the resident faculties on a specific topic in accounting; (ii) a presentation round in which emerging researchers 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 20th, 2020.

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 € 150 that will cover meals and teaching materials; participants are expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs.

We encourage all ERCs to stay on for the Accounting Workshop (June 25and 26) and social dinner. This will entail an extra cost of € 50.

Places for both events are limited and anyone wishing to attend should register as soon as possible.
