Press release date: April 21, 2011

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has released the agenda for the upcoming May 12 workshop, Standards Wars: Myth or Reality? in Washington, DC. The interactive workshop will examine the market forces of competition, convergence, and coordination on standards development and conformance activities.

In today's standards wars, there are two prevailing schools of thought:

1. There are too many standards. Many are duplicative, and some are even conflicting in their specifications. How can we choose the best option?

2. Standards developers and consortia work to meet marketplace needs. If there are multiple standards in a given area, that is because there is demand for multiple standards-based solutions.

In an effort to address these issues in an open, neutral forum, ANSI's day-long workshop will take a highly interactive, panel-based approach to examining the impact of competition, convergence, and coordination in different areas of standards development. Participants will hear from standards users, standards specifiers, and standards developers through three panel discussions, with an open Q&A session to follow each panel.

Attendees will uncover instances where conflict and duplication have been intentional in response to stakeholder needs, and unintentional due to lack of awareness of existing standardization efforts. Participants will also discuss tools to identify potentially conflicting and duplicative standards projects as early as possible in their development, including NSSN, the search engine for standards, which is currently under redevelopment.

The workshop will be held on May 12, 2011, at the Grand Hyatt Washington in Washington, DC, and is free of charge and open to all stakeholders. Registration closes Wednesday, April 27, 2011.
