Standardisation research is a multi-disciplinary field. Contributing disciplines include, but are by no means limited to, business Studies, Computer Science, Economics, Information Systems, Management Studies, History, and Social Sciences. While standards and standardisation research is an emerging research area it is of considerable interest and relevance to a large non-academic constituency that includes practitioners from industry, policy makers, users and consumer communities and, last but not least, to those active in or working for,standardssetting organisations.

Accordingly, the SIIT conferences aim at bringing together representatives of these communities to foster the exchange of insights and views on all issues surrounding Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) standards and standardisation.





Theoretical and empirical papers as well as case studies are welcome that shed some light on ICT standards, standardisation, and innovation. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • standardisation and innovation
  • impact of standards
  • implementation and diffusion of standards
  • standardisation policies and regulation
  • competing regional and international regimes
  • standards and developing countries
  • intellectual property rights and antitrust law
  • standards setting processes and organisations
  • standards cultures
  • standards education
  • history of standardisation
  • corporate standards strategies
  • Open Source and standards
  • technology convergence
  • alternative compatibility strategies and interoperability
