Fourth AIS Rearch Symposium

February 1997
Phoenix, Arizona

Call for Papers

The fourth AIS Research Symposium will again take place at Phoenix in February 1997. The symposium is sponsored by the Information Systems/Management Advisory Services section of the AAA and the journal Advances in Accounting Information Systems. The symposium will be hosted by Arizona State University-West.

The symposium uses a format centering around acceptance of a small number of papers for the main program, permitting time for extensive discussion during each presentation. A forum session has also been added to the symposium venue to enable small group discussion on papers at an earlier stage of development (including advanced stage working papers). All accepted papers for the main program will be published in Advances in Accounting Information Systems at the authors' prerogative. The symposium has traditionally had a strong behavioral research influence and ABO section members are strongly encouraged to submit their papers related to information technology issues.

Four copies of all submissions should be forwarded to Ken Harmon to be received by September 15, 1996. Authors should follow the style guidelines for Advances in Accounting Information Systems. Submissions should include a cover letter that clearly states whether the authors wish to have their paper included in Advances if accepted, whether they wish to have their paper also considered for the forum session, and/or if they prefer that the paper only be considered for the forum.

Submission deadline: September 15, 1996
Notification of acceptance: December 1, 1996
Registration deadline: December 15, 1996
Revised paper deadline: January 15, 1997
