Standards Week

Standards Activities Planned for the Symposium

By Ed Hare, EMC Society VP for Standards, and Ross Carlton, Standards Week Chair


Planning for a great Standards Week during the Spokane Symposium is winding down and we have a program that offers many opportunities to learn about or engage in Standards activities. This year, we will be offering a wide range of meetings, presentations, and tutorials related to standards. All of the Standards meetings are open to all who would like to attend.   You will just need to be wearing a badge to enter the meeting rooms.  No registration fee, membership, or anything else is required to attend, only your interest in Standards.  Please join us!

While at the Symposium, be on the lookout for attendees with a “Standards” ribbon on their badge. There are people already involved in Standards activities and probably a member of one of our major Committees. Be sure to strike up a conversation with one of these new or old hands at Standards and see what Standards has to offer you.

You will also find the EMC Society, EMC Standards, and others such as the ANSC C63® EMC committee staffing booths in the exhibit hall, ready to meet you, answer questions you may have, and just talk to about Standards in general. 

Now back to the program. The heart of Standards Week is probably the two Standards meetings, scheduled for Monday morning, bright and early on August 1.   First, the Standards Development and Education Committee (SDECom) sponsors a number of standards and at each meeting, it goes over each standard under development, monitors progress, and discusses what new standardization work may be needed.   Second, the Standards Advisory and Coordination Committee (SACCom) establishes and maintains representatives to various non-IEEE Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) that provide the EMC Society with up-to-the-minute information on standardization work you may not hear about elsewhere.  SACCom is also a gathering place where the representatives get an opportunity to meet with each other and talk about standards with their peers in other SDOs.

You will also find various meetings and training sessions scheduled throughout the week. Working Group meetings can range from individuals doing actual work on standards to mini-tutorials on what the IEEE EMC standard contains. A Continuity Group Round Table and various topical Standards Continuity Group meetings are being held for the first time to establish a mechanism to preserve knowledge between standards development activities and provide a forum for reviewing and proposing new work. Standards Week will also offer educational activities from training on how you can participate in IEEE standardization work to presentations that explain the general content of each of the important IEEE and non-IEEEE standards.  

A summary of the planned Standards Week activities is provided in the following table. Additional Working Group or Continuity Group meetings may be scheduled. Please refer to the Final Program for additional details and the actual schedule.

The project title for Working Groups planning to meet at the Symposium are noted below. Additional information on these projects can be found at the website of the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) located at https://standards.ieee.org/standard/. The Project Authorization Request (PAR) Approval link on each project page will take you to the project’s PAR, which provides the project’s purpose, leadership, and other useful information.
