The Eighth Annual Midyear Auditing
Section Conference will be held in Orlando, Florida on January 17-19, 2002. CPE
sessions will be held on the afternoon of January 17. The remainder of the
conference will consist of keynote, plenary and concurrent sessions dealing
with a wide variety of contemporary topics related to audit, attestation and
assurance practices, education and research. You are encouraged to contribute
to the program through submissions of auditing/attestation/assurance research
and education papers, and special session proposals.
The conference will be held at the
Hotel Royal Plaza in the Walt Disney Resort. The hotel is located in the highly
desirable Downtown Disney Resort area. There is complimentary transportation to
all Disney World attractions.
Research papers should follow the style guidelines of AUDITING: A Journal of
Practice & Theory. Other submissions should take an appropriate form to
permit review of their originality, quality and usefulness. Submissions are not
eligible for consideration if they (1) have been published or accepted for
publication, (2) were presented at the 2001 AAA Annual Meeting, or (3) were
presented at more than one AAA regional meeting or other academic conference.
Papers presented at the Research Forum of the AAA Annual Meeting are eligible
for consideration. It should be noted that papers accepted for presentation at
the 2002 Midyear Auditing Section Conference can also be submitted for
presentation at the AAA Annual Meeting scheduled for August 2002.
Abstracts only will be published in
the proceedings booklet. By December 1, 2001, authors of accepted submissions
are expected to provide the designated session discussant with a final printed
copy. Instructions for placing accepted papers on the Sections web site
will be included in acceptance letters.
