2017 Government and Nonprofit Section Midyear Meeting
The Government and Nonprofit (GNP) Section Midyear Meeting will be held March 10-11, 2017 at the Westin Long Beach in Long Beach, California. Long Beach Westin is located about 2 blocks from the Pacific Ocean, less than 1 mile from the Aquarium of the Pacific, and about 2 miles from the Queen Mary. The Westin is served by three airports: Long Beach Airport (LBG) is about 6 miles, Los Angeles Airport (LAX) is approximately 20 miles, and John Wayne Airport (SNA) is about 23 miles. All three airports offer taxi or van shuttle transportation to the Westin for a fee.
The meeting will provide participants with an opportunity to showcase their research and participate in the discussion of others’ research in concurrent sessions, to hear from leading professionals regarding contemporary developments in GNP topics, and to collaborate with GNP colleagues.
We welcome theoretical, practical, pedagogical and case-study papers on any government or nonprofit accounting research topic. We encourage the submission of completed studies, emerging studies (studies that are in the early stages of development), as well as dialogue studies (studies that are approaching completion). Papers not accepted for concurrent sessions will be considered for emerging studies and/or dialogue discussions. Papers accepted for concurrent sessions will be considered for the best paper award. Please submit your work by the deadline of 11:59 pm EST on Sunday, December 11, 2016.
All submitting authors and co-authors will be asked to volunteer to serve as reviewers of submissions, as well as moderators and/or discussants at the meeting. We also invite those who do not submit papers, but with interest in attending the conference, to volunteer as reviewers, moderators, and discussants.
