The second Global Standards Symposium will take place one day prior to WTSA-12, on 19 November 2012 – in the same venue. The GSS is a one-day event where ministers, regulators, heads of other international, regional and major national standards bodies, and industry from the different regions of the world will discuss global ICT standards challenges, with a focus on the intersection of the ICT sector with other vertical sectors such as health care, utilities, and transport. The Chairman of the GSS will present the conclusions of the GSS to the first Plenary meeting of the WTSA.

The first Global Standards Symposium was held in Johannesburg, South Africa on 20 October 2008 prior to the World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly (WTSA-08). The event examined global ICT standards challenges, such as accessibility, climate change and collaboration among standards development organizations.

 Steering Committee
A steering committee will be convened to help draft the report of the GSS conclusions to WTSA-12. The committee will work through electronic means and will hold conference calls as required.
