Joint ITU-IEICE-CTIF-GISFI Workshop on Education about Standardization

Recognizing the important role international standards play in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) field, and the key contribution academia makes by producing standards-minded graduates, the ITU Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T), the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE), Aalborg University’s Center for TeleInFrastruktur (CTIF), and the Global ICT Standardization Forum for India (GISFI) are organizing the Joint ITU-IEICE-CTIF-GISFI Workshop on Education about Standardization to be held at Kyoto University on 25 April 2013.
 
The objective of the workshop is to collect elements to assist in the creation of guidelines for a Syllabus on Education about Standardization.
 
The event targets an audience of ITU Academia Members and other academic institutions, research centres and laboratories; international, regional and national standards development organizations (SDOs); international organizations and industry associations; and all other interested regional bodies, government representatives, private-sector players and individuals.
 
This workshop also builds on the outcomes of the Joint ITU-GISFI-DS-CTIF Standards Education Workshop held on 8-9 October 2012, with the objective of exploring the standardization curricula currently offered by different academic institutions.
 
The programme includes the second meeting of the TSB Director’s Ad hoc Group on Education about Standardization.
