Ambler Thompson, Ph.D., of NIST and Frances Schrotter of ANSI will lead the group for the first half of the meeting; all attendees will be invited to contribute to the subsequent discussions on task groups and next steps.

All stakeholders are invited to participate, including standards developing organizations (SDOs), consortia and other forums, industry, government, and consumers. The event is free of charge, and attendance via teleconference will be available. Due to space limitations, advance registration is required for both in-person and teleconference participants.
