The EAA PhD Forum, launched in 2013, is an initiative of the EAA to help and promote PhD students in accounting. The PhD Forum is part of the EAA Annual Congress. Only PhD students that will attend the congress are able to register for the PhD Forum.

The PhD Forum will take place in the Maastricht Conference Centre (MECC) on Wednesday 11th May 2016 from 08.00 to 12.45hrs, just before the opening session of the EAA Annual Congress 2016 (

The PhD Forum is a great opportunity for PhD students to network and gain insight into academic accounting research and its environment through the speakers. It may also provide information as to how to establish contacts for entering the job market. The Forum is open to PhD students pursuing research in any topic areas (financial accounting, managerial accounting, audit, tax, etc.) and using any research method (empirical-archival, analytical modelling, behavioural, etc.) related to the EAA.


  1. To complement EAA's offering in terms of doctoral activities and education;
  2. To foster networking of PhD students with established scholars and each other;
  3. To increase the visibility of EAA within the community of PhD students.


Soon to come.

Attendance will be limited to those PhD students and emerging scholars who are registered for the Congress.

Registration to the PhD Forum 2016 can only be done simultaneously with the registration to the EAA Annual Congress 2016 via the online registration system. Please note that you will be asked to send a proof of your PhD status.
