Global Management Accounting Research Symposium (GMARS)
Michigan State University — June 5-6, 2004

Global Management Accounting Research Symposium (GMARS) is a new symposium that will rotate annually around the world (Copenhagen Business School, Michigan State University, The University of New South Wales). GMARS aims to promote a "global village" of management accounting research by bringing together a diverse set of the highest-quality research papers, plenary speakers, and researchers from around the world. GMARS will provide a broader appreciation and understanding of the many theoretical perspectives and research methods that are used to study the global diversity of management-accounting practices. The first annual symposium will be held at Michigan State University, June 5-6, 2004.

GMARS will include plenary and concurrent sessions. The plenary speakers will be: David Cooper (University of Alberta) on Qualitative Research in Management Accounting, Joel Demski (University of Florida) on Analytical Research in Management Accounting, and David Larcker (University of Pennsylvania) on Quantitative Empirical Research in Management Accounting.

Papers submitted by January 31, 2004 will be considered for presentation at concurrent sessions (no submission fee). There will be a discussant for each accepted paper. Papers addressing any management-accounting topic with any theoretical perspective and research method will be considered.
