Technology is on the mind of the CPAs visiting here as part of the American Institute of CPAs annual technology conference. This year, there's more to the equation, as the New York-based association has added a "plus" to its event name to demonstrate its intent to go deeper with information and perspective. Formally kicking off the conference Monday at the Mirage, after a series of optional sessions and roundtables the day before, David Cieslak, a partner at Arxis Technology Inc. in Simi Valley, Calif., and chair of the Tech+ AICPA Information Technology steering committee, said that they decided to "take this conference and strip it back to the walls."
