Concurrent Session Presentations

Submissions for a concurrent session may consist of completed papers and detailed advanced abstracts.  These submissions are peer-reviewed.  Please include “Concurrent Session” in the cover page of your submission.

Roundtable Presentations

These presentations focus on papers in progress. The roundtable session gives authors an opportunity to receive constructive feedback and ideas for completing the paper from other conference participants. These submissions are peer-reviewed. Please include “Roundtable” in the cover page of your submission.


Submit proposals for a panel discussion on topics that would be of interest to conference participants. These submissions are peer-reviewed.  Please include “Panel Presentation” in the cover page of your submission.

Research Poster Sessions

Submit proposals for a poster session (Time TBA).  While poster authors are expected to meet with conference participants during that time, posters will remain visible throughout the day.  Posters are ideal for student researchers, but all faculty are welcome to submit poster proposals.  These submissions are peer-reviewed.  Please include “Poster Session” in the cover page of your submission.

Please note that proposals for NAAS posters should not deal with accounting pedagogy or teaching cases.  These can be submitted for consideration to the MBAA Interactive Teaching Poster Session.  See the “MBAA Conference Details and Interactive Teaching Poster Session” section below for further information on pedagogy/teaching poster submissions to the MBAA.
