1st LMU Accounting, Auditing and Analysis Conference
On wednesday, July 15, 2015 the "1st Accounting, Auditing and Analysis Conference" took place as part of the 5th Doctoral Summer Program in Accounting Research (SPAR). The SPAR is a doctoral education initiative sponsored by the European Accounting Association and organized annually by the faculties of WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management (Vallendar, Germany) and LMU Munich School of Management. The SPAR location alternates annually between Vallendar and Munich. (Find information on past SPAR events here.)
The Conference aims at promoting empirical research in financial reporting, as well as theoretical research that provides empirical testable predictions. As the Conference is an integral part of the SPAR, the interested audience will include SPAR doctoral students and SPAR faculty. Faculty members include Daniel W. Collins (University of Iowa), Edward J. Riedl (Boston University), Laurence van Lent (Tilburg University), Martin Glaum, Martin Jacob, Garen Markarian, Maximilian A. Müller (WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management), Igor Goncharov (Lancaster University), Harm H. Schütt, and Thorsten Sellhorn (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität). Each paper will be assigned a dedicated discussant. The Conference is free, and all interested researchers are welcome to attend. We welcome submissions of rigorous original research papers that address research questions in all areas of financial reporting that are interesting and innovative to both, academics and practitioners.
