Jake Rose, assistant professor of accounting, was a presenter at the main program of the 2003 AAA-IS Section mid-year meeting in San Diego. This symposium is for the Information Systems section of the American Accounting Association. Rose presented material from his research paper titled "The Evaluation of Risky Information Technology Investment Decisions." The paper was researched and co-authored by Ania Rose, also an assistant professor of accounting at the College of Business.

Dan Stone, conference head and editor of the Journal of Information Systems wrote this about Rose, Your paper for the Research Symposium is an impressive accomplishment. We accepted only fourteen of the approximately fifty-three submitted papers for presentation at the conference."

Rose was also asked to give a presentation at the Accounting Information Systems Doctoral Consortium held right before the conference. Here he discussed how new professors can have a successful first year in research.

In addition, Rose's research paper entitled "The Effects of Cognitive Load on Decision Aid Users" was recently published in the Advances in Accounting Behavioral Research, Volume 5, 2002.

The article reported on several experiments conducted by Rose. He demonstrated how the design of accounting systems and interfaces affects learning from these systems. His work will help accounting firms develop systems that promote more learning by employees. The paper also describes theories that future researchers can employ to study the effects of accounting systems on learning.
