ISDA 23rd annual general meeting

I'd like to be all eyes and ears at this year's 23rd annual general meeting of the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA). The experts are gathering in Vienna this week discussing the prospects of the business. My guess they don't have much to celebrate.

Here is a part of the itinerary that caught my attention:
Complexity, Obscurity, and Perverse Incentives: Derivatives and Other Factors in the Credit Market Crisis
An expert panel of regulators, economists, lawyers, and risk managers examine the financial crunch of the millennium to identify causes and cures.

This is the understatement of the year.
