We invite applications for the 37th EAA Doctoral Colloquium, which we anticipate will take place in Bucharest in conjunction with the Annual Congress of the European Accounting Association on 22-25 May 2021 immediately before the EAA Annual Congress.
We plan to run the Doctoral Colloquium in person as normal, but we cannot yet guarantee it. Therefore, we are also making contingency plans to proceed with a virtual event should the pandemic resurge. Details to follow.
The aim of the Doctoral Colloquium is to provide an opportunity for European doctoral students in accounting to present and discuss their research with a distinguished faculty, supplemented with a menu of plenary sessions and group activities on a range of issues relevant for PhD students, such as the journal submission and review process; the job market and early career; reviewing and presenting, and other research and career-related topics.
Students selected to participate in the Doctoral Colloquium are offered hotel accommodation for the duration of the colloquium (Saturday, Sunday, and Monday evenings). They also do not have to pay the registration fee for the EAA Annual Congress held immediately after the Colloquium on 26-28 May 2021. However, students must cover their own travel costs as well as accommodation expenses for the EAA Annual Congress.
Please submit your application as soon as possible and certainly no later than 15 November 2020.
Applications must be completed online and contain a CV, an extended 3-page abstract of the doctoral research currently undertaken, and a questionnaire completed by the main thesis advisor. Your advisor must use the template provided – download template.
Students who were admitted last year but could not attend because the event was cancelled must re-apply with an updated application this year. Thus, applications from last year are not automatically rolled forward. While the EAA has generously offered to support a few more students this year if the need arises (up to 9), unfortunately we cannot guarantee places to last year’s admitted students.
Students accepted for the Doctoral Colloquium will be required to prepare a full paper for presentation at the colloquium following the typical format of research papers in accounting (or their sub-areas where conventions vary). PhD students who have progressed at least beyond their second year are the most likely to benefit from the colloquium. Accordingly, we only encourage later-stage doctoral students (who already have at least one working paper rather than merely a research proposal) to apply.
The organising institutions—the European Accounting Association (EAA) and the European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM)—attach considerable importance to the Doctoral Colloquium. Not only does the colloquium provide a way of stimulating high-quality doctoral research, it also establishes and enhances a network of international contacts between younger accounting researchers, and between them and established scholars. We are grateful for their support.
