[802SEC] ASN.1 Seminar
IEEE 802.16 has arranged for an ASN.1 expert, Bancroft Scott, to conduct a seminar on that topic on Sunday 11 July. The primary focus is on 802.16, but it appears that the room will be large enough to accommodate a few other people. Any other IEEE 802 participants who wish to attend should notify Bancroft, since he is tracking the anticipated attendance to match it with the space.
> ---------- Original message ----------
> OSS Nokalva is offering to provide a free seminar on ASN.1 to all interested IEEE 802 meeting attendees in conjunction with the upcoming meeting in San Diego. The ASN.1 seminar will run from 9:00am - 7:00pm and will be focussed on the subset of ASN.1 and PER that will be used in IEEE 802.16m.
> The seminar is scheduled for Sunday, July 11, 9:00am-7:00pm. Please let me know if you are interested in attending this seminar.
> Here is a description of the content of the seminar:
> This 1-day seminar will focus on the subset of ASN.1 and PER that is to be used in IEEE 802.16m. It will include hands-on ASN.1 and PER encoding exercises which will greatly help in making the seminar material concrete.
> The material to be covered will include the following:
> Type Notation
> Subtype Constraints
> Value Notation
> Packed Encoding Rules, Unaligned
> Backward compatible changes
> The ASN-1Step tool will be used for the seminar exercises. This tool will allow the seminar attendees to easily create ASN.1 types, check the syntax for correctness, use a graphical message editor to create and view message instances, and examine at the bit level how messages are constructed in PER. The attendees will leave the seminar knowing how to define messages in ASN.1, and will understand the effect of the various syntax choices on the size of PER-encoded messages. They will also leave with clear knowledge of how to safely change or extend ASN.1 types, and what changes to never make because they result in backward compatibility problems.
