2011 Accounting Symposium Schedule

From PhD Prep Track

Jump to: navigation, search

This is the 2011 BYU Accounting Research Symposium schedule. This year we are going to continue with the paper reading requirement. We would like all those who attend the symposium to sign up to read and provide written comments on at least two papers. We believe this will substantially enhance the discussion during the sessions and help authors to get better feedback on their ideas. Consider providing feedback on two papers your "price of admission" to the symposium (not to mention it's just part of being a great colleague).

To list your name underneath two papers, follow these simple steps:

  1. Login to the wiki using the link on the top right (if you don't want to login, you can send David Wood an email of what two papers you want to read and I'll update for you).
  2. Click on the "edit" tab at the top of the page (upper left side).
  3. Scroll down on the page to just below the title of the paper you are going to read before the conference and for which you will provide written comments.
  4. Type in two "**" and then your full name and whether you are a Ph.D. prep student, Doctoral Student, or Faculty member.
  5. Click on the "Save Page" button at the bottom of the screen.

Your name will appear below the paper you have agreed to read. We ask that reviewers spread out evenly across the papers--we don't want 20 reviews of one paper and only 1 review of another. We also are hoping to have all experience levels represented as reviewers on a paper (i.e., faculty, doctoral students, and Ph.D. prep students), so again, please pay attention to this when choosing the papers you want to review.

We are sure this will improve the symposium. If you have any comments, suggestions, or questions about this, please click on the "discussion" tab at the top of the screen and type your comments in there, or feel free to email David Wood at davidwood@byu.edu. Feel free to stroll around the entire wiki website and enter data, make suggestions, or provide feedback in a similar manner.
