AGENDA - May 25th XBRL Symposium


8:00 - 8:30
Breakfast and Sign-In

8:30 - 8:40
Welcome and Introduction

8:40 - 9:30
Overview
XBRL is an open specification for the exchange of financial reporting
information.  Financial statements created in XBRL can make investor
communication more effective and make financial comparison and aggregation
and analysis more efficient.  The scope of the XBRL open specification today
encompasses US financial reporting but is flexible enough to improve the
transparency and usability of financial information everywhere.  In this
presentation we will describe how the current members of the XBRL steering
committee have worked together to produce a multi-layered XML-based
specification that is comprehensive, substantive, flexible and powerful.  We
will also discuss the future evolution of the technology, the organization,
how it relates to other computing standards, and potential applications.

9:30 - 9:45
Demo

9:45 - 10:15
Domain Group Taxonomy 
Discuss the concept of an accounting taxonomy.  They will also discuss the
framework for creating taxonomies by industry and by country.

*	Discuss their experiences creating the first taxonomy, which was
created for US GAAP commercial and industrial companies.  
*	Demonstrate how this initial taxonomy is extended for the reporting
requirements of an individual company.  
*	Discuss how this initial taxonomy will differ from the next taxonomy
being created for other countries.
*	
*	10:15 - 10:30
*	Break
*	
*	10:30 - 10:45
*	Demo
*	
*	10:45 - 11:15
*	Adoption Strategy and ROI
*	XBRL (Extensible Business Reporting Language)-
*	reduces costs
*	enables new tools for reporting and analysis
*	strengthens investor relations, and
*	provides greater revenue opportunities for the entire financial
reporting supply chain

We will present multiple cases describing the short-term return on
investment of implementing XBRL, as well as several future-state scenarios
based on XBRL's adoption strategy with other internet movements, across
industry sectors, internationally, and along the information supply chain,
from companies and e-marketplaces to intermediaries and aggregators to
end-users, analysts and investors.
