Accounting and Economics Society Annual Conference

Inaugural AES Annual Conference

The inaugural Accounting and Economics Society Annual Conference (2024) will be held on Aug. 9-10, 2024 at New York University in New York City. The Conference aims to provide a forum for the exchange and flourishing of theoretical and theory guided research in accounting. While the conference focuses on theoretical work, it invites also papers that are guided by economic theory but use other methodologies, such as reduced-form empirical archival research, structural estimation and experimental research. The conference encourages crossovers with other areas of the social sciences that can contribute to, and benefit from, insights in accounting research.

The conference will feature paper presentations with a discussant assigned to each paper, as well as three keynote speakers. This year’s keynote speakers will be Tim Baldenius (Columbia University) Philip Dybvig (Washington University ) and Paul Fischer (Wharton school).

The conference is sponsored by New York University and the Accounting and Economics Society (AES), who jointly sponsor two additional events that will take place in the same week, also take place at New York University – an accounting theory summer school (August 6-8, 2024) and the Junior Theory Conference (August 11, 2024).
