The Accounting Information Systems and ERP track at ECIS 2013 succeeds the two successful tracks at ECIS 2011 and ECIS 2012 establishing a European perspective on AIS and ERP research at the ECIS conference. The track is endorsed by the Special Interest Group for Accounting Information Systems (SIG-ASYS, of the Association for Information Systems (AIS). As such, it supplements the global SIGASYS forums. The International Journal of Accounting Information Systems( is the sponsoring journal for the track.

Topics of interest

The objective of this track is to bring together researchers and practitioners from all disciplines related to Accounting Information Systems as well as ERP 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 Reengineering
  • Business Rules, Business Patterns
  • Accounting information systems modelling, design, and implementation
  • Conceptual modelling for accounting and auditing purposes
  • Metrics and performance indicators for IS appraisal
Insightful, coherent and methodically sound studies of any type (case study-based research, action research, survey studies, archival analysis, experimental research, theory development, design science research, etc.) are equally encouraged. Completed research and research-in-progress papers will be accepted. 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 provide a forum for bringing the leading AIS researchers and developing scholars together to discuss and critique leading edge research in the field.
