The American Institute of CPAs is holding its 35th Annual National Conference on Current SEC and PCAOB Developments in Washington on 10-12 December 2007, simulcast in five other cities, including London.

Various representatives from the SEC, PCAOB, AICPA, FASB and other groups are speaking at the conference. The conference is quite popular among SEC registrants and their auditors because the SEC and PCAOB representatives provide insights on important issues for calendar year-end reporting. Here are links to some of the presentations at the conference.
