Call for Papers

Accounting researchers from all accounting Ph.D. granting institutions within Florida are invited to submit manuscripts to the fourth annual Florida Accounting Symposium (FAS). The FAS’ objective is to facilitate the interaction of accounting researchers (especially junior faculty and doctoral students) and the exchange of research ideas in the great Sunshine State. The University of Florida, Florida State University, and University of Miami will take turns hosting the annual FAS. The fourth conference will be held on September 14-15 in Coral Gables, Florida.

The 2018 FAS submission deadline is July 15, 2018. Papers will be selected by the Program Committee. Submitting authors will be notified of the program committee’s decisions no later than August 10.

Both accounting faculty and doctoral students from accounting Ph.D. granting institutions within Florida are invited to attend the conference. Registration before August 19 is required but no registration fee is charged. The conference will start with lunch at noon on Friday, September 14, and end right after lunch on Saturday, September 15. We will follow the same conference format as last year. Hotel information, registration forms, and the conference program will be posted in mid-August.
