The EAA VARS needs you! Besides attending and contributing to the seminar session itself, we encourage everybody to register for meetings with speakers and attend the virtual reception. If you are a PhD student or an early career faculty member, please consider registering for a 30 minute meeting slot with the presenter to discuss your own research and theirs. Registration will open one week prior to the seminar and slots will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. The virtual reception is open to all interested parties and is meant for agenda-free group discussions and fun. The same registration procedure applies.

We also encourage you to nominate a speaker and/or paper. The EAA VARS is initially organised by Joachim Gassen (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin), Giovanna Michelon (University of Bristol) and Mark Clatworthy (University of Bristol) on behalf of the EAA and the ARC. We are aiming to put together an intellectually stimulating and diverse program of fresh accounting research. Please get in touch with us at eaa.vars@gmail.com with nominations of speakers and/or papers. Self-nominations are also encouraged. Normally, the person successfully nominating a person/paper will act as the host of the respective seminar.


Registration will open one week prior to the seminar and slots will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
Those signing up for the meetings must also register for the seminar and are expected to have read the presenter’s paper before the meeting.
