Doctoral Consortium aims to:
Provide PhD students with a friendly and lively atmosphere to present their research ideas, exchange experiences with peers, and receive constructive feedback on their work from the accounting research community;
Help students and doctoral candidates to formulate research questions and organize their research;
Help to forge new relationships and collaborations within the Accounting community; and
Support a new generation of researchers with information and advice on academic research.
Student Research Proposals: A group of researchers will review all the submissions and comment on the content of the work as well as on the presentation. Students will have 15 minutes to present their research, focusing on the main theme of their thesis, what they have achieved so far and how they plan to continue their work. Another 15 minutes are reserved for discussion and feedback from the panel of reviewers. Due to limited time up to 10 students will have the opportunity to present their proposals. The deadlines and requirements for student proposals are the same as conference submissions.
