1st Annual Pre-ICIS Workshop on Accounting Information Systems
Tuesday, December 15, 2009
Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A.
CALL FOR PAPERS AND PANEL PROPOSALS
SIGASYS cordially invites both academics and practitioners from all over the
world to present their original research and/or to organize a panel discussion
in the field of Accounting Information Systems.
The workshop will focus on a wide range of topics at the intersection of
accounting and information systems. The SIG ASYS Workshop takes over the role as
the AIS-oriented pre-ICIS conference formerly filled by the International
Research Symposium on Accounting Information Systems (IRSAIS). The SIG ASYS
Workshop encourages interested researchers to get together and discuss
Accounting Information Systems research in Phoenix, Arizona, USA just before the
start of ICIS.
The workshop is particularly interested in papers that link information and
communication technology with accounting or auditing using theories and
perspectives from those fields or from fields like psychology, sociology,
cognitive science, political science, behavioral science, and economics.
High-quality, insightful, and theoretically sound studies of any type
(quantitative studies, qualitative studies, action research, survey studies,
archival analysis, behavioral/experimental, design science, case studies,
surveys, theory development, etc.) are equally encouraged.
Accounting Information Systems (AIS) provide the mechanisms required to capture
and store transactions, to ensure the accuracy, timeliness, and validity of
those transactions, to satisfy the organization's legal and regulatory
requirements, and to inform all the stakeholders of the economic status of the
organization. AIS provide the vast majority of the data required for
operational, tactical, and strategic decision making. AIS also provide the basis
for interorganizational information sharing, for innovative and strategic data
initiatives, and for external reporting to various stakeholder groups. Suggested
topics include (but are not limited to): Systems integration, IT governance,
risk assessment and management, value of information systems, information
assurance, global AIS, continuous auditing, auditing end user systems, internal
audit, COSO, CobiT, AS5, forensic auditing, data mining & business intelligence,
querying, ebXML, XBRL, AIS use, data ambiguity, data quality, AIS design, AIS
models, the Resource-Event-Agent (REA) model, AIS data models, and enterprise
All submissions must represent original work that has not already been published
in a journal or conference proceedings (in complete form - abstract publication
is permissible). At least one author for every accepted paper must register for
the workshop and be prepared to present his or her paper in person.
The workshop will be held as an all-day meeting on Tuesday, December 15th, in
Phoenix, Arizona, prior to the start of ICIS 2009. Participants should plan on
arriving the day before for an early start to the meeting and to attend the
customary networking dinner that will take place on Monday night (December
14th). There will be a single track to maximize interaction and participation.
Workshop participants will be charged a registration fee. All submissions must
be in English and will be blind reviewed by at least two peers.
FAST-TRACKING TO JOURNAL
One best paper award will be announced at the workshop, and this paper, after
meeting the required revisions, will be published in the International Journal
of Accounting Information Systems (IJAIS) at the author's prerogative. Authors of selected workshop papers
will be invited to submit their papers for fast tracking in IJAIS.
