Developed by XBRL International, Inc. and hosted by XBRL Europe, the 22nd XBRL International Conference will be held on May 17-19, 2011 in Sheraton Brussels, Brussels, Belgium.

The conference aims to provide an international stage for Regulators, Financial & Banking Institutions, Public Companies & SME’s to share the benefits and case studies of using XBRL as the standard for business reporting and how it is being implemented around the world.

The program committee planned the conference around the theme of burden reduction and interoperability by sharing experiences on how XBRL favorably impacts enterprises and investor communication, regulatory reporting, accountancy and audit, supervisors and business registers, and data processing solutions.

The conference is divided into seven tracks: Interactive Data Creation, Interactive Data Collection, Interactive Data Sharing, Interactive Data Analysis, Interactive Data: Academic Research, Interactive Data: The XBRL Technology and Interactive Data: Made Simpler: XBRL Tools & Solutions.

There are approximately 400 attendees from around the world representing decision makers from the public and private sectors expected to attend the event. The participants include financial officers, many from multinational firms, investor relations managers, regulators, analysts, developers, prepares, users & providers of XBRL services from Europe, Asia, and the Americas.

XBRL is an XML-based language that uses accepted financial reporting standards and practices in order to encourage the standardisation and exchange of financial information across all software and technologies, including the Internet.

The conference is also supported by the AICPA, which is the national, professional association of Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) in the United States.
