Standardisation research is a multi-disciplinary field. Contributing disciplines include, but are by no means limited to, Business Studies, Computer Science, Economics, Information Systems, Management Studies, History, and Social Sciences. While standards and standardisation research is an emerging research area it is of considerable interest and relevance to a large non-academic constituency that includes practitioners from industry, policy makers, users and consumer communities and, last but not least, to those active in or working for, standards setting organisations.
Accordingly, the SIIT conferences aim at bringing together representatives of these communities to foster the exchange of insights and views on all issues surrounding ICT standards and standardisation.
Theoretical and empirical papers as well as case studies are welcome that
shed some light on ICT standards, standardisation, and innovation. Possible
topics include, but are not limited to:
• standardisation and innovation
• impact of standards
• implementation and diffusion of standards
• standardisation policies and regulation
• competing regional and international regimes
• standards and developing countries
• intellectual property rights and antitrust law
• standards setting processes and organisations
• standards cultures
• standards education
• history of standardisation
• corporate standards strategies
• Open Source and standards
• technology convergence
• alternative compatibility strategies and interoperability
Important Dates: Submissions due: 1 May 2013Notification of acceptance: 1 July 2013 Final paper due: 1 August 2013
Original (unpublished) papers not exceeding 6,000 words are solicited. They will undergo a double blind peer-review process. Authors may submit more than one paper, but each participant will only be allowed to present one paper during the conference. Conference content will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Accordingly, the authors must comply with the IEEE policy on copyright and plagiarism including self-plagiarism. Authors of accepted papers will also be asked to sign an IEEE Copyright Form. Outstanding papers will be considered for inclusion in the International Journal on IT Standards and Standardization Research (JITSR).
Submissions (in .pdf format) should be made through the EasyChair system at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=siit13.
We expect to be able to offer travel grants for students and for attendees
from developing countries. Those who are interested should send an e-mail
message to Kai.Jakobs@cs.rwth-aachen.de.
