2015 International Accounting Section Midyear Meeting
2015 20th Annual Midyear Meeting
and 11th Ph.D./New Faculty Consortium of the
International Accounting Section of the American Accounting Association

Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel
Palm Springs, California
January 22–24, 2015

The 21st Annual Midyear Conference and 11th Annual Doctoral/New Faculty Consortium of the International Accounting Section of the American Accounting Association will be held in Palm Springs, California at the Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel during January 22–24, 2015. A desert resort city in California, Palm Springs offers a great destination for warm weather, tourist attractions and activities.

The meeting will be co-chaired by Mahendra Gujarathi (Bentley University) and Stephen Lin (Florida International University). The conference program will start on Thursday, January 22, with the doctoral student/new faculty consortium (coordinated by Hollis Skaife (University of California, Davis)) and a CPE workshop. The conference will continue with plenary sessions, panels, concurrent sessions, and other events through Saturday. There will be receptions on Thursday and Friday evenings.

You are invited to contribute to the program through submissions of international accounting research papers, cases and/or panel proposals. We encourage you to volunteer to serve as a reviewer, discussant, and/or a moderator.

This year’s meeting will feature a plenary session to showcase 2 (two) high quality research papers in international accounting that have been submitted to the Journal of International Accounting Research (JIAR).  The authors will have the opportunity to present their work to the entire audience of the conference (no parallel sessions will be run during that time slot), benefit from the comments of a senior discussant, and have a “fast-track” review at JIAR.  The papers accepted at the plenary session are expected to be published in JIAR; however, the ultimate disposition of each manuscript depends on the normal editorial review process of the journal and the desires of the authors. JIAR is a premier journal in the field of international accounting continuously published for the past 13 years, and recognized as quality “A” journal by the Australian Business Deans’ Council.  

As in past years, special consideration will be given to papers and cases that have been authored (or co-authored) and will be presented by doctoral students and assistant professors. To indicate such submissions, please include an asterisk (*) at the beginning of the title of your paper.

Submission Guidelines

The papers for consideration in a plenary session need to be submitted to JIAR with an indication in the cover letter to the editor that (a) you wish to have the paper considered for the plenary session and (b) whether you would like the paper to be considered for inclusion in a concurrent session, in case it is not selected for the plenary session. You can access the submission website for JIAR at

For panel proposals, describe the rationale and importance of the topic in a page or so, indicate the planned panelists, and whether you need any help from the International Accounting Section to contact the panelists. Unless otherwise stated, it will be assumed that the person submitting the panel proposal would be willing to moderate the panel.

For submission of all other papers, and for volunteering as a reviewer, discussant, or moderator, please access the system using your AAA member ID and password. If you have forgotten your AAA member ID/password, click the link to retrieve them. If you do not have an AAA member ID/password, please click the link to create a new account.

All submissions will be subject to a blind review process. Therefore, submitted documents should NOT include a title page or any author identifying information. Submitting authors will be asked to copy/paste an abstract of the paper (200-400 words) into a form field, separately from the submitted document. Authors will be listed in the printed program in the order they are entered during the online submission process. PDF is the preferred format for paper submissions.

The paper submission deadline for all papers, including those for consideration for the fast-track review by JIAR, is 11:59 pm EDT on Friday, October 15, 2014. Authors will be notified of the committee’s decision by November 24, 2014.
