Call For Papers

Fifth Symposium on Ethics in Accounting

The Professionalism and Ethics Committee of the AAA invites papers for the Fifth Symposium on Ethics in Accounting, to be held immediately preceding the 2000 AAA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia. While papers examining any aspect of ethics in accounting are always welcome, due to the current importance of the issue (and given the Philadelphia meeting location), we hope to devote at least one session to the issue of independence in the accounting profession. At the author's discretion, papers will also be considered for publication in Research on Accounting Ethics.

Scope and Aims of Symposium
The purpose of the symposium is to explore various aspects of ethical decision making in an accounting context. The symposium will provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners interested in ethics in an accounting setting to exchange information, to network, and to discuss emerging issues.

Location and Dates
The symposium will be held in Philadelphia 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.

Details for Paper Submission
One copy of the completed manuscript should be transmitted as an attached Word file to Tim Louwers ( on or before March 1, 2000. To preserve the anonymity of the review process, please remove any references to authors on the cover page or in the body of the paper.

A non refundable submission fee of $10 (made payable to the American Accounting Association) should be submitted concurrently to:

Tim Louwers
Department of Accounting, CEBA 3101
