Academicians, practitioners, and doctoral students are invited to submit research papers for possible presentation at the meeting. Papers in all areas of behavioral accounting will be considered. Theoretical papers and papers based upon empirical research are appropriate. Diverse methodologies are encouraged, including field, experimental, and critical research. Replications and extensions of previously published studies will be considered. Special consideration will be given to papers that address the efficiency and effectiveness of performance in accounting and auditing contexts.

The Conference will be held at Disney's newest resort, the Disney Coronado Springs Resort. A very reasonable rate of $115 per night (plus applicable taxes) has been negotiated for Conference participants. The Resort features a Southwestern motif and is highlighted by colorful plazas, palm-shaded courtyards, and a rocky shoreline surrounding a shimmering lake. There is a full-service restaurant and lounge, as well as a themed food court, on site. The Resort is centrally located near Epcot, Disney-MGM Studios, and is a neighbor to Disney's Animal Kingdom Park (opening Spring 1998). Airport shuttle service is available, and there is free transportation from the Resort to all Disney venues. The reservation telephone number is 407-939-1020.
