We have a classic chicken-egg problem here. How do you schedule a conference when you are not sure how many people might want to attend (and thus lose a sizeable deposit and guarantee money) vs. how do you get people to commit to something that is not set in stone?

My solution is to create a thread in which those interested in securities fraud can participate in shaping the conference into something they, by definition, would attend. This would include both subject matter and the personnel invited to discuss it. Once the particulars are hashed out as best as possible, I would start taking (fully-refundable) deposits (probably through PayPal) until it made financial sense to nail down the dates.

See subsequent posts for additional details and status updates.
