Organised by

The European Academy for Standardisation (EURAS)

Hosted by

DIN e.V.

The progressing digitalisation will have disruptive impacts on both the economy and society - speed and complexity of technological change will increase dramatically. These developments
will challenge existing institutional frameworks including regulations and standardisation, which will have to be continuously adapted. Moreover, digitalisation drives the convergence of different technologies and even sectors and thus increases the need for new interfaces at various levels. As a result, more standards will be needed, especially at the international level. In addition, the increasing relevance of data protection and security will require an even better co-ordination between standardisation and regulation, which also faces problems of transnational harmonisation. In summary, these challenges driven by digitalisation require comprehensive analyses to adequately inform stakeholders active in standardisation, including standards setting organisations.

EURAS 2017 solicits papers on the above theme. However, papers on other standardisation topics will also be considered. Sample topics include:

* Standard Reference Architectures

* Standards for Systems Engineering

* Standards for Converging Technologies

* Standardisation Roadmaps

* Standardisation and Open Source

* Standardisation as a policy tool

* Standards as barriers to trade?!

* National or international policy and standardisation

* Standardisation and Europe's research and innovation agenda

* Relation between standardisation and legislation

* Standards as a driver for innovation

* Standardisation and quality infrastructure

* Standardisation and IPR

* Standards and knowledge transfer

* The impacts of standards and standardisation

* Quality of standards

* Role of industry and their associations in standardisation

* Standardisation via industry consortia

* History of standardisation

* Standardisation processes

Full papers (up to 30 double spaced pages; rtf. .doc or .docx format) should be submitted to Kai Jakobs at Kai.Jakobs@cs.rwth-aachen.de.

All papers will be double blind reviewed by members of the Programme Committee. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, as part of the 'EURAS Contributions to Standardisation Research' book series. Particularly good papers will be fast-tracked to the Int. Journal of Standardization Research.
