IEEE Conference on Standards for Communications and Networking
29-31 October 2018 – Paris, France


Standards in Practice

This training will provide a practical introduction to the standards development process. Influencing standards is essential for research activities to have impact, particularly in the area of communications. However, few university courses truly prepare graduates for involvement in standards, seeing this as the role of industry. This often means standards are driven by the larger players who have the staff and resources to dedicate to the system.

To address this issue, IEEE SA and IEEE Educational Activities have developed a standards simulation game, which can be used to train students and graduates in the standards process. This interactive session will start with an overview of the IEEE standards development process, before giving participants a chance to try the game for themselves. The session will end with practical tips on how to engage students and young professionals more in the standardization process.
