Save the Date: ICT Interoperability Conference to Be Held in February 2008


New York, Nov 19, 2007

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), in partnership with the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC), and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), is pleased to announce an upcoming conference entitled Interoperability: Key to International Business. The two-day event will be held in Warsaw, Poland, on February 6-7, 2008.

Interoperability is the ability of two or more networks, systems, devices, applications or components to exchange and utilize information between them. Given the increasing diversity of products and systems in the global village, interoperability is of paramount importance to minimize marketplace fragmentation and facilitate trade.

Approximately 200 stakeholders from industry, government, and the standards and conformity assessment community are expected to attend to discuss standards-based solutions to interoperability challenges. Key issues to be addressed will include:

  • home and building electronic systems (HBES)
  • eBusiness interoperability
  • radio frequency identification devices (RFID)
  • entertainment (multimedia, digital TV)
  • eHealth, eLearning, eSkills and eGovernment
  • technical interoperability demonstration and testing
  • quality of standards

Registration is currently open at www.interoperabilityconference.org. A draft agenda and information about sponsorship opportunities are also available for review and download.
