IEEE-SIIT conferences are held every two years. They aim at bringing together standardization researchers from different disciplines; IT-practitioners, policy makers, standards developers and users (administrations, companies, etc.) – that is, those who are interested in exchanging insights on standards and standardization, and appreciate the different angles and types of knowledge brought together.
Please join us for a pre-conference gathering at my home on Monday evening, October 5, from 5:00 – 8:00pm. In addition to serving as an opportunity to get acquainted or re-acquainted, we’re hoping to have a relaxed ‘salon’ discussion about the intersection of academic research and industry interests. We’ll discuss how industry and academia can better work together to address research questions that are relevant for industry, in a manner that respects and protects academic independence and integrity. We’ll talk about some forums where this sort of intersection has happened historically (e.g. the Standards Edge conferences, the Arizona State workshops, and, of course, IEEE-SIIT), and explore whether additional forums would be useful. Brad Biddle (formerly of Intel, and currently a Visiting Scholar at Lewis and Clark Law School) and I (Steering Committee Chair) are coordinating this informal gathering, and Intel Corporation has generously agreed to provide food and drinks. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for the address in Palo Alto and whether you would need a ride or whether you may be able to offer a ride to another participant.
