The main objective of the conference is to provide an environment to share knowledge and best practices and stimulate collaborations and discussions to assist the realization of the full potential of XBRL and the related technologies on how they interact and may impact business information from various perspectives. In addition, the conference activities are intended to challenge the participants, including academics, practitioners, regulators, software developers, and analysts, to think beyond the status quo to better benefit from XBRL in the digital economy. To stimulate the thought process, in addition to traditional paper presentations, there will be three panels.
Panel I: “Revisiting the Business Supply Chain: Roles, Goals, and Influences of XBRL Stakeholders”
Panel II: “Using XBRL Tagged Data to Perform Analysis: Current Status and Future Potentials”
Panel III: “Evolution and Future Trend for XBRL Development”
We are planning to have a three-hour pre-conference training session on Thursday afternoon (April 25, 2013) from 2:30-5:30 pm on “Analyze XBRL Today” given by Eric Cohen, Father of XBRL GL
Abstract of Training Session: It is April 2013 - and that means that the majority of US GAAP filers have now provided a detailed-tagged 10-K to the SEC. With the wealth of detail now available for analytics at the Securities and Exchange Commission's EDGAR system, as well as a wide variety of international filings as well, it's time to learn about - and being to master - the variety of analytic tools available, especially for academics. In this session, you will learn:
- The basics and state of XBRL
- Tools for analytics
- Demonstration and hands-on learning
- Information quality - where are we? Where can we go?
- Stakeholders interested in the on-going advancements in XBRL technology, and emerging technology complementary to XBRL.
- Members of academia interested in XBRL and Information systems research and education.
