What did the participants say?

“I truly like the conference! It was a great opportunity for networking and the presented papers were very interesting. I hope I can come back next year. Thanks to all of the organizers for their great work!”

“Thank you for all your hard work in planning this conference. I hope the conference was a success and that it will continue in the future.”

“Excellent conference! Looking forward to future HARC conferences!”

“I liked the session and selection of papers. I also felt the conference provided a great space and environment for networking.”

“One can tell that someone really thought about how to design the conference experience. From excellent comments from reviewers upon submission and review of papers, food vouchers for breakfast and lunch that provided excellent networking with other participants, good keynote speaker, interesting presentations, and good poster presentations. The Polynesian Cultural Center was a great way to provide a good exposure to Hawaii for first time visitors. The first day social provided bountiful food and drink with another great opportunity to network with others.”

“This conference was probably in my top 3 conferences of my 35 year career! Great work!”

“High quality papers presented, paper discussants also exceeded my expectations! The panel discussion on cryptocurrencies was very relevant. I wish that there was more time for that one. Kudos on bringing in Mike McGuire. His talk on accounting disruption was also relevant. Overall, I generated excellent research ideas. Thank you to the faculty and the students that organized and executed this conference and I hope to be able to attend again next year.”

“The quality of papers is good; most of the presentations and discussions in the sessions that I attended were clear, informative, and constructive; the conference was well organized (clear instructions; prompt responses; friendly people at the registration desk); the availability of campus housing along with campus parking permit was a big plus, which made attending the conference affordable; I also like the idea of having tickets for breakfast and lunch.”

“I really like the overall quality of papers, presentations, and discussions. Dave’s opening speech is great. Sudipta’s presentation is great……I think there is lots of potential in this conference to attract researchers to come, which will enhance UH’s reputation and future hiring.”

“Quality of papers, attendees, presentations and discussions. All outstanding. The Wednesday evening reception was very nice. Hosting at UH-Manoa was a great setting, and I liked the food coupons for use at the cafeteria/Starbucks. The shuttle from/to downtown was great to have, and most of the email communication leading up to the conference was really good for helping to be organized and prepared. The student ambassadors helping through the day were all very knowledgeable and professional.”

“I applaud the organizers of the conference for a job well done. I think everything was done well and professionally. Personally, I enjoyed many of the papers, the discussions, and the networking opportunities. The hospitality was Hawaiian!”

“Thank you very much for organizing a terrific conference. I learned a lot and established connections with other scholars in my field.”

“Great job with your inaugural conference! Look forward to attending again in future years.”

“Great conference thanks for putting it together! I would love to help anyway I can in the future. Thanks!!”
