ABO Research Conference
October, 2000

The 2000 ABO Section Research Conference will be held in downtown Chicago over the Columbus Day weekend (Oct. 6-7). Negotiations with hotels are in process and a more precise venue will be announced soon. Several innovations are being considered for this meeting. The section is attempting to secure a commitment from a notable academic from outside accounting as a plenary speaker. The section is also planning to offer doctoral students an opportunity to present their work in concurrent sessions. Special reduced registration costs will be offered to those in pursuit of their degrees. The section will soon be formally soliciting papers that make contributions to the diverse traditions of scholarship in behavioral accounting. A March deadline is contemplated. Plan on joining us in a city that is convenient for everyone to reach. An optional recreational activity is also being planned.

Dennis Bline and Tim Fogarty, Conference Coordinators
