We invite you to present your research at one of the parallel sessions of the conference. Research papers dealing with all aspects of management accounting will be considered for presentation.

Submission Rules

An author can submit and present only one paper. However a presenter can also be a non-presenting co-author on additional papers.

Authors are invited to submit full papers. The deadline for the submission of papers is January 10, 2019, 23:59 GMT.

A full paper is a complete scholarly research report that could reasonably be submitted for publication in a public working paper data base such as SSRN.

Papers will be evaluated by independent peer review.

Confirmation of acceptance or rejection will be given before or on January 30, 2018 and mailed to the corresponding address of the presenting author (unless another author is selected as a contact person).

The presenters of an accepted paper must register as a participant for the conference before February 15, 2019. When registering, please indicate the topic and methodology of the paper.

By submitting a paper, the authors thereby agree to their paper being made available in the restricted access area of the conference website. 

Please take into account that once a paper is included in the programme, the author should present it at the conference or officially notify the organizers of its withdrawal.

Types of sessions

At the ACMAR 2018, there will be three types of sessions:

  1. Parallel Session with Discussant, where selected relevant papers will be individually discussed,
  2. Parallel Session, that will include papers in a normal session; and,
  3. Round Table Session, where interesting but rather early stage working papers get intensive feedback.
