I plan on attending the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) conference will take place in Boston MA, USA on the October 5-7, 2011. The conference addressing these key issues:
 
• SEC's update on its decision to move towards IFRS  
• IASB's progress and future work plan 
• Advice from those who have implemented IFRS and those preparing for IFRS conversion 
• The roles of FASB and IASB after completion of MOU projects 
• How to apply and manage IFRS in practice 
• Impact of IFRS adoption on global capital markets 
• Status of the major FASB and IASB convergence projects 
• Investor protection issues 

The conference is hosted jointly by the American Institute of CPAs and the IFRS Foundation. The conference offers a unique opportunity to learn about the latest developments in IFRS from a North American perspective. Members and senior staff of the IASB will provide updates on their joint work with the FASB to complete their remaining convergence projects, including financial instruments, leases and revenue recognition. Confirmed speakers include Hans Hoogervorst, IASB Chair, Barry Melancon, AICPA President & CEO, and Harvey Goldschmid, IFRS Foundation Trustee and Dwight Professor of Law, Columbia University.
