SIIT2005 - The 4th International Conference on Standardization and Innovation in Information Technologies
Geneva, 21 - 23 September 2005


SIIT2005 differed from other ITU workshops as it focused on standardization research – a discipline that addresses the concepts underlying standards and the standardization process as a whole, rather than a specific technology and its standardization requirements. It aimed to further the knowledge and practice of standardization, which is to be used as a tool to pave the way for successful and interoperable information and communication technologies.

As a typical IEEE conference, all presentations had been selected after a thorough peer-review. The accepted papers, the panels and the keynote speakers addressed theoretical and empirical analyses of standardization processes, and analyse standardization case studies from a range of different viewpoints.

The subject of standards was addressed from different viewpoints and disciplines that affect standardization: in addition to technology, economics, social sciences, law, and policy. In short, those interested in exchanging insights on the concepts behind standards and standardization with a theoretical or a practical view were warmly welcomed. There were two panels: one on the economic value of standards, and another on RFIDs and ubiquitous network societies.

In principle, the SIIT conference series is self-funded by the attendees. This year, however, thanks to the support of the ITU, British Telecom, Microsoft, and Sun Microsystems, access to the conference was free.
