New Directions for
Accounting-Ethics Research
Sixth Symposium On Ethics In Accounting

Call for Papers: March 1, 2001

The Professionalism and Ethics Committee of the AAA invites papers for the Sixth Symposium on Ethics in Accounting, to be held immediately preceding the 2001 AAA Annual Meeting in Atlanta. Because of the current importance of the issue, we hope to devote at least one session to focus on new directions for accounting ethics research. We also welcome papers examining any other aspect of ethics in accounting. At the author's discretion, papers will also be considered for publication in either Research on Accounting Ethics OR Accounting and the Public Interest, which is a new journal published by the Public Interest Section of the AAA.

Scope and Aims of Symposium
The purpose of the symposium is to explore new frontiers of ethics research in an accounting context. The symposium will provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners interested in ethics in an accounting setting to discuss recent research, exchange information, to network, and to discuss emerging issues encountered in practice. Both presentation and forum sessions will be included in the program.

Location and Dates
The symposium will be held in Atlanta immediately prior to the AAA Annual Meeting. The meetings will be held in the main convention hotel, or within a convenient walking distance from the hotel.
