On the Horizon: Working Group Web Conferences Dates
The dates of the biweekly EESCC working group teleconferences will be announced shortly. During these web meetings, the working groups will begin the standards needs assessment for their relevant areas and lay the groundwork for their portion of the standardization roadmap. All EESCC working groups will then convene in person in January for a full plenary meeting to synthesize input and coordinate next steps for the roadmap.
