About the Workshop & the PAR-a-thon
In this workshop, we will explore the role that standardization plays in translating research ideas into not just particular products and services, but entire new industries. The session will showcase developers of successful IEEE EMB standards. They will discuss the journey of their standard, including:
- The technical and sociotechnical needs that led to pursuing standardization
- The technology and principles behind the standard
- The experience of initiating and developing the standard through to publication, adoption, and potential revision
- The critical technical and organizational challenges and insights learned
- The impact that the standard is having on research, industry, and society
After the invited talks and interactive panel discussion, participants will join one of the breakout sessions and learn how to complete a Project Authorization Request (PAR), an early step in the IEEE standards development process.
This “learn-by-doing” part of the workshop is a PAR-a-thon, a hands-on learning experience for anyone interested in learning how to develop a standard. No previous experience is required. Experienced standards leaders will assist as facilitators. We suggest that you review the available Resources prior to the workshop.
This standards workshop is part of a new platform for advancing standardization within the EMB technical areas. The workshop will serve as a forum for industry, researchers, and government stakeholders to document and discuss successful cases for standardization. The platform will build on these case studies as examples of successful practices and to identify opportunities for new standards and synergies between existing standards. In order to be truly successful, IEEE standards need to be high quality and fill a significant, unmet need or transformational opportunity.
