XBRL


AICPA President and CEO Barry C. Melancon and SEC Chairman Christopher Cox will be keynote speakers at the 14th International XBRL Conference & Exhibition in Philadelphia on December 4–6, 2006. “XBRL’s potency as a business tool is recognized worldwide,” Melancon said. “It facilitates the transmission and analysis of financial information and thus improves decision-making. The AICPA and XBRL-US welcome Chairman Cox, who is encouraging SEC registrants to participate in the commission’s voluntary XBRL filing program.”

Other speakers include International Federation of Accountants Chief Executive Ian Ball, CFA Institute President and CEO Jeffrey J. Diermeier, FASB Chairman Robert H. Herz, U.S. Department of Labor CFO Samuel Mok and IASB Chairman Sir David Tweedie. More information is available at www.xbrl.org .
