Dear EC and RR-TAG,
Please note that the ITU is holding a workshop on the “Internet of Things – Trends and Challenges in Standardization”. It is co-located with their IoT Global Standards Initiative, 19 – 25 February 2014. Note that they are saying “The key objectives of the workshop are to assemble IoT experts from industry, government and academia, and to explore the status of various standards initiatives in IoT and machine-to-machine communications (M2M) at ITU as well as other standards developing organizations (SDOs)”. (High lighting is mine.) This should be of interest to a number of us, especially given the ITU’s concepts on how to “manage” the internet.
While participation is free the timeline to register interest in participation is fairly short – 15 January 2014.
The ITU is organizing a Workshop on “Internet of Things – Trends and Challenges in Standardization” in Geneva, Switzerland, on 18 February 2014. The workshop will be collocated with the IoT Global Standards Initiative (IoT-GSI), 19-25 February 2014.
The key objectives of the workshop are to assemble IoT experts from industry, government and academia, and to explore the status of various standards initiatives in IoT and machine-to-machine communications (M2M) at ITU as well as other standards developing organizations (SDOs). A particular focus will be on the progress made in IoT-related standards and protocols development in the university, research and open source communities. The target audience consists of managers and engineers working with IoT applications, service providers planning on delivering IoT solutions, and policy and standards makers.
An Exhibition is planned during the workshop. Exhibitors from industry, government, research institutes and academia are invited to cover Internet of Things, general matters as well as specific application domains and solutions. Should you be interested in participating (e.g. giving a demo, showcasing projects etc.), please reserve your booth by completing and returning the exhibitors form, indicating your specific requirements to email@example.com as quickly as possible and no later than 15 January 2014.
As all ITU workshops, participating is free of charge.
We look forward to seeing you in Geneva.
