Seminars are highly specific projects driven by a collaborative research agenda leading toward publication. The main role of this unit is to foster such collaborations and to do so, where possible, in a public setting that allows auditors to gain insight into the project, the process, and the people involved. Seminars continue working throughout the year, via exchange of papers, bibliographies and correspondence. They are expected to eventuate in publication(s). Seminars meet for two ninety-minute sessions at each Annual Meeting for a period of five years. Seminar participants (up to twenty) pre-circulate papers and come to the seminar’s Annual Meeting session ready to discuss them, papers should not be read at the session. Auditors who are not among the seminar’s participants are welcome. Seminars are not renewable.
You can find general descriptions of the seminars, including their most recent call for proposals, and chairs' contact information on the AAR's PAPERS website.
