(BW)(NJ-IEEE) IEEE Announces Conference on Global Business Standards Trends; Conference to Be Held 26 and 27 Sept. 2005 in Munich, Germany
PISCATAWAY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 22, 2005--In response to the changing dynamics of today's standards world, the Corporate Standards Program of the IEEE Standards Association will host a conference on global standards trends in Munich, Germany, on 26 and 27 September 2005. The conference, "Standards for Global Business: The European Conference on Collaborative Trends in Europe and Global Standardization," will explore standardization from the perspective of both standards development organizations (SDOs) and corporations. "Standards for Global Business" will address such areas as the growing cooperation among international and other standards bodies and new models for standards development developed in response to the business and market needs of European and global industry. The SDO section will include presentations and interactive panel discussions by such organizations as the International Organization for Standardization, the International Electrotechnical Commission, and the International Telecommunications Union.
Insight on corporate-based standards development and corporate reaction to global standardization trends will be provided by leading companies involved in information technology, consumer electronics, communications and other fields.
Companies scheduled to lead discussions include IBM, Intel, Siemens, and Sony. In considering the range of standards development options open to corporations, case histories will demonstrate how the IEEE's individual and corporate consensus programs and the consortia-type structure within the IEEE Industry Standards and Technology Organization are being used to create a full range of standards and implementations.
Conference participants may also attend a meeting of the IEEE Standards Association Corporate Advisory Group, the governing body for the IEEE Corporate Standards Program, which will be held on 27 September, immediately following the conference.
