  1. CEN WS XBRL Project  Work in progress in parallel in the three CWAs

CWA1: Discussions in taxonomy Architecture. Feedback from the community to be requested in the near future. Most of the topics has been upload to www.xbrlwiki.info

CWA2 – Header: Identification of entities to be designed “Solution agnostic” and therefore being inclusive of LEI, Core Business Vocabularies, or others (if required), as nobody would known “ex ante” the future requirements.

CWA2 – Transmission/security: collecting information and existing solutions for digital signatures, certificates and so on. Signature at container level (possible inclusion of several XBRL instance documents under the same signature). See also Commission Decision 2011/130 http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CELEX:32011D0130:EN:NOT

Challenges when using a working format for on-line involvement of XBRL community (as www.xbrlwiki.info ) in parallel with the CEN final formal format

CWA3:  Work in due course at   www.xbrlwiki.info

We are working on the first proof-of-concept micro taxonomy eu-mir based on the CEN concepts, using a subset of MIR-EBC (monetary interest rates).

The simpler option is opening the DTS located at www.eurofiling.info/eu/fr/xbrl/fws/mir/2010/2012-09-24/tab/i.1/i.1.xsd

Opening the proof-of-concept micro taxonomy eu-mir in your local computer with a taxonomy editor (with possible rendering limitations if table linkbase is not used) needs to create URI mappings as follows (see also the solution on eu-mir/catalog.xml ):

Remote Syst. Id: http://www.eurofiling.info Local System Id: eu-mir\www.eurofiling.info

Remote System Id: http://www.xbrl.org    Local System Id: eu-mir\www.xbrl.org

See our public working WIKI space at www.xbrlwiki.info  Volunteers welcomed!

The confcall is quite noisy when a large number of attendees are present. The confcall provider has been now programmed for DO NOT announce anymore the name of the attendees, in order to avoid interruptions to the speaker.

At the end of the confcall, the chair will ask for the names of the participants for the minutes. Each participant is free for opting of DO NOT reveal his/her name.

All the attendees are kindly request to systematically mute their telephones when entering in the confcall. (i.e. simply press -in order- the two keys # 6 for mute and again # 6 for unmute).

Many thanks for your understanding.
