Website of the conference


The 2022 Conference will be hosted online 

The Alternative Accounts Conference brings together accounting faculty and doctoral students from North America and beyond who are interested in alternative accounting research. The Conference especially aims to increase accounting researchers’ awareness of the diverse areas of research belonging to the “alternative” paradigm of accounting research, and to provide a forum to discuss these studies from a variety of viewpoints – in a constructive environment. This conference rotates between Alberta, Ontario and Québec.

The 26th Annual Ethics Research Symposium encourages submissions of all academic research, teaching papers, panel sessions, case studies (with related notes) that address relevant issues in accounting ethics. Submitted research should focus on ethical issues for individuals, companies, government, or society that ultimately inform applications for teaching, business practice, or policy.

14th Doctoral/New Scholar Consortium and Midyear Meeting of the Public Interest Section held jointly with the Gender Issues and Worklife Balance Section of the American Accounting Association

Conference - 19 – 22 May 2022

Submission March, 10 2022.  For more information and submission details, click HERE

The meeting will be held virtually May 19–21, 2022. Thursday May 19, will be dedicated to a Doctoral/New Scholar Consortium. Plenary and concurrent research paper sessions will take place Friday, May 20 and Saturday, May 21.

MEETING FOCUS: The AAA PI and GIWB Sections view accounting as a social activity with important consequences for organizations, accounting practitioners, educators, and the public at large. This conference seeks to promote conversation between scholars who are using a diverse set of research methods to address gender, work-life balance, and public interest issues broadly construed. We welcome both mature and emerging paradigms in advanced and developmental stages. Members of both sections are interested in research that challenges dominant representations of accounting. The GIWB section is particularly interested in work that considers differential impacts of accounting across demographic and cultural groups. The virtual format is intended to facilitate participation and cross-cultural conversations with international scholars.
