2nd Workshop on ‘Standardisation Management’

                Call for Papers

                               24 March 2014
                   Ecole des Mines Albi-Carmaux, France

In conjunction with the I-ESA’12 conference (Interoperability for
Enterprise Systems and Applications)

Objective of the Workshop

The WS aims to address aspects relating to the management of
standardisation. That is, it will look at managerial issues of corporate
standardisation as well as at standards management in the public sector.
Accordingly, the main objective is to contribute to the identification
of best-practices in organisational standardisation management.

Corporate standardisation management also entails the selection of the
most appropriate standards bodies. Thus, a secondary objective is to
identify the criteria upon which this selection is based. This, in turn,
will (hopefully) contribute to a more effective and efficient
standardisation landscape.
Topics Covered (this is a non-exclusive list)

–        approaches to corporate standardisation management in the public and
the private sector;
–        corporate standardisation strategies;
–        intra-organisational flow of information about standardisation;
–        the individual in standards setting ? selection, training, motivation;
–        new ways of co-operation between standards bodies;
–        potential new standardisation landscapes.
