ONE LAST CHANCE to Attend the Intensive Workshop on Teaching AIS!
The AAA will be offering the REA Bootcamp workshop for one final time on June 9–14, 2013, at the Kellogg Conference Center on Michigan State University's campus. Bill McCarthy has designed and delivered this workshop about engaging faculty in an intense environment to quickly build expertise in a fundamental AIS concept: Resource-Events-Agents modeling, databases and systems. This course is designed to bring together and support those newly involved in teaching accounting information systems courses, information systems faculty looking to build additional skills in modeling, MIS faculty moving into AIS roles. As the final offering, it really is a way to get up to speed quickly or to retool and rethink your approach to teaching AIS — and to thinking about accounting.
Because this is the last opportunity for this workshop, it will be available to those who have not taken it in the past — but will also be available to "alumni" who would like to come back for a "refresher" to help them extend their knowledge and refine their craft of teaching. If you are interested in attending, please click here to apply. Because space is limited, we may not be able to accept everyone, so please apply as soon as you are able!

Studies in Accounting Research (SAR)
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The Research Advisory Committee is currently accepting proposals and completed works for evaluation for possible publication in Studies in Accounting Research (SAR). SAR is a prestigious monograph series of the AAA that provides an outlet for seminal and innovative research not bounded by the usual space and topic constraints present in our journals. SAR is of significant benefit to authors in exploring a topic in great depth and as a resource for other researchers.
