5th International Accounting & Finance Doctoral Symposium
The 5th International Accounting & Finance Doctoral Symposium, which is focused on developing the research strengths and skills of doctoral students, is hosted by the University of Strathclyde, Strathclyde Business Schooled and sponsored the Universities of Bologna, Leeds, Plymouth, Queensland, Salamanca & Monash University. This year's symposium builds on the tremendous successes of the previous meeting which took place at the Universidad de Salamanca, Spain in 2011 (and prior to that in Prato, Italy).
This Symposium offers an excellent opportunity to students to present their work to an international audience outside their usual University environment. Prominent professors and researchers in the fields of accounting and finance will attend the Symposium and provide detailed feedback to individual participants on their research.
SCOPE: We seek original theoretical and empirical papers in the fields of accounting and finance, with an emphasis on findings that contribute to solving the outstanding research problems that are of significant impact to these fields.
PAPER SUBMISSION INFORMATION: The submission should be either an extended abstract, complete paper or work in progress. Each submission will be reviewed by the Doctoral Symposium program committee. The main evaluation criteria are:
- Quality of the research
- The potential for impact
- Relevance to the accounting and finance disciplines
Only electronic submissions in PDF or Word format will be considered.
PARTICIPATION FEE: For accepted students to the program, the fee is British Pound 200. This fee covers registration, symposium documents, a welcome pack, lunch, coffee/tea and the gala dinner and cocktails. An information pack including information on hotel and university accommodation, and their cost, and Glasgow and Strathclyde University will be provided with the notification of acceptance.
