2 Invitation 30th Annual Congress of the European Accounting Association The 30th Annual Congress of the European Accounting Association will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, from 25 to 27 April The venue is the Lisbon Congress Centre, a few minutes from the city Centre. Lisbon, Portugal Spread out across a flurry of hills on the banks of the River Tagus, Lisbon is a city whose lifeblood has always been its wide river and the access to the Atlantic Ocean that it so readily provides. The city grew rich during the Age of the Discoveries in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, when intrepid Portuguese explorers set off down the Tagus and out on to the open ocean on their epic voyages to Africa, the Far East and Americas. Lisbon is a capital that very much wears its history on its sleeve with traces of the Phoenicians, Celts, Romans, Visigoths and Moors all rumbling below the surface of a city that owes much of its current appearance to an eighteenth and nineteenth century makeover following an earthquake in The area follows a quadrangular plan and is called Baixa. On its streets graceful eighteenth century buildings complement rambling old districts like the Alfama and the Bairro Alto, while ornate Manueline styles provide a sharp contrast to the glass and steel modernity of the city s newer developments. Lisbon today is a thoroughly modern metropolis as it demonstrated when it held the title of European City of Culture in 1994 and then staged the highly successful World Expo in 1998, an event that brought a revamped underground system, a new bridge across the Tagus (Vasco da Gama) and the rebirth of the waterfront area at the Park of Nations Expo site. In 2004 this dynamic city also hosted many of the European Championship football matches, including the final. Today Lisbon is not only at the heart of Portugal, but it also plays a central role as a gateway between North America and Europe. From the airport to the city centre offpeak takes only around 15 minutes. More direct airline routes than ever before, a high speed train link to Oporto and motorways to the north and to the Algarve mean that the Portuguese capital has never been better connected. These first-rate transport links have helped firmly cement its position as one of the world s premier destinations. Lisbon is clearly a business hub on the move. ADCES Association of Accounting Teachers in Higher Education, Portugal The aims and objectives of ADCES are the advancement of knowledge and understanding of Accounting. ADCES was established in 1995 and is a Portuguese nonprofit registered association, which brings together those interested in teaching and research in accounting.

4 Language The official language of the congress is English. Portugal - your host Country Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic is located in the west and southwest parts of the Iberian Peninsula in South Western Europe, and is the westernmost country in continental Europe. Portugal is bordered by Spain to the north and east and by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and south. In addition, Portugal includes two archipelagos in the Atlantic, Azores and Madeira Islands. The real joy of visiting and travelling in Portugal is that it is still one of the least discovered corners of Western Europe. There are countless reasons for visiting this delicious land. The map of Portugal is pleasantly patterned with numerous small rivers, highlands, and green valleys. The north is the cradle of the nation; the noble city of Porto, one of the oldest towns in Europe, lies at the heart of the region s history and commerce. Further south is the cosmopolitan capital of Lisbon, venue for Expo 98, and surely one of the friendliest and most charming capitals of Europe. Portugal is rich in history, from Neolithic to Phoenician, Celtic, Roman and Moors. Evidence of its early beginnings can be seen in a number of regions. To visitors, Portugal offers a rich, tangible past as well as sunshine and long, clean seductive beaches. Many will bypass culture to bask by the hotel pool or on the beaches or play golf, but the Portuguese legacy extends to everyone in the daily spectacle of street and marketplace, in generous food and good wine, in the morals and the manner of the Portuguese. Portugal s appeal for the foreigner endures.

The process of amending an abstract is the same as the original submission process, except that the submission form will be automatically filled in with the answers that you gave previously - you don't have to change an answer if you don't want to. If you don't want to change the answer on any screen, just press "Next" to bypass the step. The files originally attached as Abstract and full paper will remain attached to your submission unless you attach a new file. By attaching a new file, the original file is automatically deleted. If you want to change your abstract file you can click the "Browse" button to locate the revised file on your PC's hard disk. Once the required file is located, click "Next" to send it to the abstract system (this automatically uploads the revised file and replaces the original file). If you don't want to change the file, just press "Next" to bypass this step. When you reach the final step and press "Finish" you will be sent an confirming that your abstract has been amended - provided you have answered all the required questions.
