W3C Organizes Workshop onon Improving Access to Financial Data on the Web

W3C and XBRL International have announced the organization of a Workshop on “Improving Access to Financial Data on the Web”. From the Call for Paper:

The goal of this workshop is to identify opportunities and challenges for interactive access to financial data expressed in XBRL and related languages, and the broader opportunities for semantic technologies. What are the use cases? Who are the stakeholders? What are the potential roadblocks and how can they be addressed? How can new applications be created based upon integrating XBRL with other sources of information?

The main outcome of the workshop will be the publication of a report that will serve as a guide for further work in both W3C and XBRL International.

The Workshop will take place in Arlington, Virginia, on the 5-6 October, 2009. The Workshop is co-organized by W3C and XBRL International, and is hosted by FDIC.
