CALL FOR PAPERS: IEEE-SIIT 2015 - The 9th International Conference on Standarization and Innovation in Information Technology


CALL FOR PAPERS: IEEE-SIIT 2015 - The 9th International Conference on Standarization and Innovation in Information Technology

Sunnyvale, California, United States
6 - 8 October 2015

Conference Theme: Interoperability, Intellectual Property and Standards

Interoperability has never been more important than it is today. It can be achieved by design, following the market or through standardization. How does intellectual property impact interoperability? How do these factors interact with standardization? IEEE-SIIT 2015 will explore these, and other, important questions.

IEEE-SIIT conferences aim at bringing together academia, government and industry participants engaged in standardization to foster the exchange of insights and views on all issues surrounding standards, standardization, interoperability and innovation. Contributing academic disciplines include, but are not limited to: Business Studies, Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, History, Information Systems, Law, Management Studies, and Sociology.

All types of papers (e.g., theoretical, empirical, case studies) are welcome that foster our understanding of interoperability, innovation and standards. Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Standardization and innovation
- Standards, intellectual property rights and antitrust law
- Open standards, open source, open innovation
- Standardization policies and regulation
- Standards in support of technology convergence
- Alternative interoperability strategies
- Adoption, implementation and diffusion of standards
- Standardization management and strategies
- Standards setting processes and organizations
- Economics of standards
- Impact of standards (e.g., on innovation, competition, or other aspects)
- Standards legitimacy
- Standards education
- History of standardization
- Standardization for developing countries
- Different regional and international standards regimes

A focus on intellectual property rights and standardization: IEEE-SIIT's strengths include addressing cross-discipline standards and standardization issues. IEEE-SIIT 2015 will focus on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and their impact on standards and standardization as a cross- disciplinary issue. This is an opportunity to discuss not only the legal issues IPR creates, but the social (public good vs. private gain), technical (negotiation of IPR controlled features), Standards Development Organizations' (SDO) policies (Would a common SDO IPR policy help?), economic aspects (What is the cost of controlled IPR in a standard?), and government policy (Should patent examiners consider the impact of patents on standards?).

Submissions due: 3 April 2015
Notification of acceptance: 26 June 2015 Final paper due: 31 July 2015
