Standards Wars: Myth or Reality?
by GSI staff March 11, 2011
Workshop on May 12 to Examine Market Forces on Standards Development and Conformance Activities
Standards Wars: Myth or Reality? is a full day workshop to be convened in Washington, D.C. by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). This event examines the impact of competition, convergence, and coordination in different areas of standards development. Via a highly interactive, panel-based approach, attendees will hear about and discuss one of the hottest issues facing US standards developers. The panel will help uncover instances where conflict and duplication have been intentional in response to stakeholder needs, and unintentional due to lack of awareness of existing standardization efforts. Participants will also discuss tools to identify potentially conflicting and duplicative standards projects as early as possible in their development, including NSSN, the search engine for standards, which is currently under redevelopment.
To be held on May 12, 2011, at the Grand Hyatt Washington in Washington, DC, the event is free of charge and open to all stakeholders, including representatives from U.S.-based and international standards developing organizations, consortia, trade associations, industry, government agencies, consumer and labor groups, and academia.
Registration closes Wednesday, April 27, 2011. For more information, or to register, visit www.ansi.org/standardswars.
