View the preliminary program

Announcement and Call for Papers

We are pleased to announce the ninth International Symposium on Accounting Information Systems (ISAIS) commencing in the morning of Thursday June 27, followed by a half day on Friday June 28. ISAIS is rotated annually between the University of Melbourne (Australia), Tilburg University (The Netherlands) and Michigan State University (USA).

The objective of ISAIS is to provide a global forum for Accounting Information Systems (AIS) researchers to discuss and critique leading edge research in the field. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: AIS and internal controls, AIS development, Big Data in accounting and assurance, Blockchain, business analytics, business intelligence, business process modeling, continuous auditing and reporting, decision aids, ERP systems, strategic information systems and XBRL.

ISAIS is particularly interested in interdisciplinary papers that address accounting questions drawing from accounting, psychology, cognitive science, behavioral science, economics, computer science, and/or information technology. High-quality, insightful, and theoretically sound studies of any type (action research, archival analysis, behavioral/experimental, design science, surveys, theory development, etc.) are encouraged.

The 2019 Symposium will tentatively include a keynote address, research presentations and one or more panel sessions. The emphasis will be on a high level of interaction, discussion and debate in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. There will be an award for the Best Paper.

Paper Submission

Consistent with the objective of the Symposium to provide opportunities for interaction and debate on leading AIS research with both academics and practitioners, both early papers and papers closer to publication are welcome. We encourage doctoral students and junior researchers to submit their research.

All submitted work must however be submitted in the format of a completed paper, and represent original work that has not already been published or accepted for publication in a journal. At least one author for every accepted paper must register for the Symposium and be prepared to present their ideas in person. At the option of the authors, papers can also be considered for publication in the International Journal of Accounting Information Systems (IJAIS).

Paper Submission Deadline is April 15, 2019.

Earlier submissions are encouraged.

ISAIS and IJAIS (Dual Consideration) Submissions

At the authors’ prerogative, submitted papers can also be considered for publication in the International Journal of Accounting Information Systems (IJAIS).
