The 2017 International Symposium on Accounting Information Systems (ISAIS)

May 8-9, 2017 - Valencia, Spain

Tilburg University is pleased to announce the seventh International Symposium on Accounting Information Systems (ISAIS), immediately preceding the 40th Annual Congress of the European Accounting Association. ISAIS is held annually and rotated between the University of Central Florida (USA), Tilburg University (The Netherlands) and the University of Melbourne (Australia).

The objective of ISAIS is to bring together researchers from all disciplines related to Accounting Information Systems (AIS).  Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: AIS development, distributed ledger technology, internal control developments, strategic information systems, cultural influences on AIS, business intelligence, decision aids, business process management, audit and assurance regarding AIS, continuous auditing and reporting, enterprise resource planning, knowledge management, XBRL, process mining, and data-analytics.

The 2017 ISAIS program will tentatively consist of a keynote speech, journal quality paper presentations, and a workshop. 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 of ISAIS is to provide a global forum for bringing the leading AIS researchers and developing scholars together to discuss and critique leading edge research in the field.

Paper Submission

Only completed research papers should be submitted. Accepted papers will receive a conditional acceptance for publication in the International Journal of Accounting Information Systems. Papers are not required to be dually considered for the journal and authors should advise in their cover letter whether they wish to have their paper considered for IJAIS. We encourage doctoral students and junior researchers to submit their research.

ISAIS (Symposium Only) Submissions

ISAIS and IJAIS (Dual Consideration) Submissions

At the authors’ prerogative, submitted papers can also be considered for publication in the International Journal of Accounting Information Systems (IJAIS). These papers should constitute original research that is not currently being considered for publication or has not been previously published elsewhere. For concurrent consideration at both the ISAIS symposium and IJAIS, authors should submit their manuscripts using the IJAIS online submission system at and e-mail their complete manuscript to both: Eddy Vaassen at and Mieke Jans at The ISAIS organizing and program chairs will serve as the IJAIS editors on these papers in close collaboration with the IJAIS editors, Professors Sev Grabski and Stewart Leech.
