Report The 37th European Accounting Annual Congress (EAA) was held in Tallinn (Estonia). I submitted a full-paper which was accepted after going through a competitive double-blind review process. At the conference I gave a talk on my current research project 'The Monitoring Effect of More Frequent Disclosure'. It was a great opportunity for me to present my results in front of excellent researchers from all over the world. During my session but also during several discussions with other researchers, I received some valuable comments that will considerable improve the quality of my research project. Beyond that other researchers confirmed the importance and contribution of my research project to the ongoing debate on the optimal reporting frequency.
