The Standards Edge™ Conferences

The Standards Edge™ conferences explore standardization and the different issues that impact it. The conferences emphasize active participation and are designed to encourage open exchange between those that influence and are affected by standardization. Industry leaders, government, standardizers, academics, and users attend this conference to learn how to both use standardization more effectively and to participate in strengthening this valuable tool worldwide. Conferences are designed and produced by The Bolin Group in conjunction with sponsors chosen to bring different viewpoints to each event. For further information on this series, please contact
