2009 Conference

2009 CAPANA Conference
July 2-3, 2009
Beijing, China

The Chinese Accounting Professors’ Association of
North America’s Second Annual Research Conference

CALL FOR Participation

The Chinese Accounting Professors’ Association of North America (CAPANA) invites both members and non-members of CAPANA to join us in Beijing for the second CAPANA Annual Research Conference on July 2-3, 2009. The objective of the annual conference is to bring together accounting scholars in North America and Asia to discuss a small number of accounting-related papers.


There will be approximately eight (8) papers to be presented at the conference. The format of the presentation is similar to a regular workshop except that there will be discussant for each paper.

From the pool of the conference submissions that are not accepted for the regular presentation, we will also select a number of papers for a poster session during which a relatively senior faculty member will hold a private meeting with the submitting author to help improve the paper.

See "conference papers" page for information on presenters, discussants for the conference papers as well as papers for poster sessions. All papers are available for download as well.


Important Update(on a change of Conference Hotel) as of Jun 16 2009.
