PhD Forum 2017
Wednesday, 10th May 2017 – 08:00-13:00
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 Valencia Conference Centre (VCC) on Wednesday 10th May 2017 from 08.00 to 13.00hrs, just before the opening session of the EAA Annual Congress 2017 (www.eaacongress.org).
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.
