This year’s DART accounting workshop took place at the University of Mannheim in January. The workshop was co-organized by CAR’s Rainer Niemann and Dirk Simons (University of Mannheim). DART students Negin Attar, Claire Estebanez, Claudia Langbauer, Felix Niggemann, and Reinhard Schrank had the opportunity to present their current working papers, covering diverse topics such as auditing, taxation, disclosure, and materiality. DART’s Robert Eder, Sandra Hinteregger, and Kristoffer Uhlenkamp discussed research papers by fellow PhDs and post-doctoral students from the University of Mannheim and the University of Frankfurt. Overall, the engaged audience and the discussants provided many valuable suggestions on how to improve the papers by identifying critical points and offering solutions within the session and in discussions afterwards.
