Accounting educators, students, and professionals are invited to submit completed manuscripts, and ideas for panels or workshops, for presentation at the AAA's 2001 Annual Western Region Meeting. Now in its 36th year, the annual meeting will be held at the Hilton Hotel in San Jose, California. The best research paper will be awarded $2,000 and a plaque. The best education paper will be awarded $1,000 and a plaque. The deadline for paper submissions is November 1, 2000; the deadline for panel and workshop proposals is December 1. Details and updates will be made available periodically on the Region's Internet home page (

The Hilton is located in downtown San Jose. It is accessible by walking or public transportation to the city's fine restaurants and many historical and cultural attractions. A complimentary shuttle service is provided by the hotel to and from the nearby San Jose International airport.

Authors who wish to have their papers considered for the meeting should mail 5 copies of their completed papers to the Program Chair, Dr. Carolyn A. Strand, in time to be received by the submission deadline of November 1, 2000. Fax and e-mail submissions are not permitted. The mailing should include both a self-addressed stamped postcard and a self-addressed stamped envelope with the title of the paper indicated on the back. Papers will be blind refereed. Authors of accepted papers will have the choice of publishing either the paper or of an abstract in the meeting proceedings. Since the proceedings will be available on-line, authors of accepted papers will be required to submit the final abstract or paper in electronic format. At least one author of an accepted paper must register for the meeting and present the paper. For consistency and as an aid to reviewers, papers should use the Accounting Review style. Papers should be singled-sided and double-spaced, using a 12-point type, and have 1" margins all around. Pages should be numbered. Papers should be stapled to a cover page indicating the name, title, affiliation, complete postal address, e-mail address, telephone number and fax number of the author(s). Except for the title, none of this information should appear anywhere else in the paper. The cover page should also include at the bottom an indication of which section of the AAA best matches the topic of the paper (e.g., ABO, Auditing, Financial Reporting, or Teaching & Curriculum). Sections are described at the AAA's home page (

Those interested in conducting workshops or giving panel presentations should submit their proposals to the Region's President, Dr. Robert E. Holtfreter by December 1, 2000. CPE workshops will be held in half-day or full-day sessions on Thursday, May 3, 2000. Paper and panel presentations will take place in 90-minute concurrent sessions all day Friday , May 4 and until noon on Saturday, May 5.
