ECIS 2011 / Track on Accounting and Information Systems

The Special Interest Group for Accounting Information Systems (SIG-ASYS) of the Association for Information Systems (AIS) invites academics and practitioners to present their original research in the field of Accounting Information Systems at ECIS 2011.

The track supplements the global SIGASYS forums at AMCIS 2010 and prior to ICIS 2010. It is intended to establish a European perspective on AIS research at the ECIS conference series. The track is sponsored by the SIG-ASYS and endorsed by the SIG-ASYS President. The International Journal of Accounting Information Systems ( is the sponsoring journal for the track.

The objective is to bring together researchers from all disciplines related to Account-ing 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:

  • IS assurance, audit, control, and reporting
  • IS evaluation, IS assessment, IT business value, IS costs and benefits
  • IT governance, IT compliance, IT auditing
  • Enterprise systems, Enterprise Resource Planning, Business Reengi-neering
  • Business Rules, Business Patterns
  • Accounting information systems modelling, design, and implementation
  • Business process modelling for accounting and auditing issues

Insightful, coherent and methodically sound studies of any type (construction-oriented research, design science research, case study-based research, action re-search, survey studies, archival analysis, experimental research, theory development, 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 4 to 8 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 pro-vide a forum for bringing the leading AIS researchers and developing scholars to-gether to discuss and critique leading edge research in the field.

Fast-Track Publication

All accepted papers will be considered for recommendation as a fast-track publication to the International Journal of Accounting Information Systems (IJAIS) by the track co-chairs in collaboration with the editor-in-chief of IJAIS.
