the 20th European Conference on Information Systems

Accounting Information Systems and ERP

The Special Interest Group for Accounting Information Systems (SIG-ASYS) of the Association for Information Systems invites academics and practitioners to present their original research in the field of Accounting Information Systems (AIS) and Enterprise Systems at ECIS 2012. The track supplements the global SIG-ASYS forums at AMCIS 2011 and prior to ICIS 2011. It establishes a European perspective on Accounting Information Systems and ERP research at the ECIS conference series. The track is co-organised by the SIG-ASYS and endorsed by the SIG-ASYS President. The International Journal of Accounting Information Systems and the International Journal of Critical Accounting are affiliated journals of the track.

The objective of this track is to bring together researchers and practitioners from all disciplines related to Accounting Information Systems and to intensify the exchange between the various perspectives on research at the intersection of Accounting and Information Systems. The track will cover a wide range of topics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Insightful, coherent and methodically sound studies of any type (case study-based research, action research, survey studies, archival analysis, experimental research, theory development, design science research, etc.) are equally encouraged. Completed research and research-in-progress papers will be accepted. The review process will be double-blind by at least three anonymous referees.

The track will tentatively consist of 6 to 12 journal quality paper presentations, and a panel. The emphasis is on a high level of interaction, discussion, and debate in a friendly, supportive and relaxed atmosphere. At the same time, the intent is to provide a forum for bringing the leading AIS researchers and developing scholars together to discuss and critique leading edge research in the field.

Fast-Track Publication

All accepted papers will be recommendation for fast-track publication in two reputable journals: The International Journal of Accounting Information Systems (IJAIS) (Elsevier) and the International Journal of Critical Accounting (IJCA) (Inderscience) by the track co-chairs in collaboration with the editors-in-chief of both journals.
