IEC-IEEE-KATS Challenge awards first place prize to paper addressing standardization in a smart era Five prizes awarded for academic papers analyzing future challenges in standardization

Geneva, Switzerland, 2018-10-18 - The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) together with IEEE and the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS), has announced the winners of the IEC -IEEE- KATS Challenge. This year, the Challenge awarded prizes for the best academic publications analysing the future role of standardization and conformity assessment.

The development of technology is currently characterized by the interdependence and complexity of systems as well as the rapid pace of innovation. From autonomous vehicles to smart manufacturing and digital transformation, technology is driven by interconnected systems rather than stand-alone products. Within this context, the IEC, IEEE and KATS invited interested academics and engineers to provide their perspectives on how these developments challenge the future of standardization. The contest was open to participants from 30 November 2017 until April 30th 2018.

The IEC - IEEE - KATS Challenge first place prize has been awarded to Doyoung Eom together with Heejin Lee from Yonsei University in South Korea and Dong-hyu Kim from the University of Glasgow for their paper entitled New Rules for Standard-Setting and New Roles of Standardization Bodies in the era of IoT. In this paper, the authors outline how so-called standard-clashes' are no longer between those in the same industry but instead between different industry sectors. They provide case studies in the areas of electrical vehicle charging and connected car communication systems.

The second place prize has been awarded to Kai Jakobs from RWTH Aachen University in Germany for his paper on smart standardization. Jakobs outlines the difficulty of standardization for smart' systems such as smart cities and proposes the establishment of a smart' system single sign-on (SSO).

Three prizes have been awarded for the third place. Kanika Singh and Hoseong Daniel Lee from the American Bureau of Shipping detail the need for electrical measurement data management standards in the oil and gas industries. Daniel Masso-Aguado and Luis Diaz-Balteiro from the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid explore the implementation of a synthetic index to measure the degree of standardization in a given country. Yongrae Cho, Hyunjun Park and Eunji Mok from the Science and Technology Policy Institute together with Jeongno Lee from the Korea Electronics Technology Institute identify knowledge and technology flows between standard making communities and how they can be used to indicate industry changes.

The winners will present their papers during the Standards Education Convention on 22-23 October that will take place alongside the IEC General Meeting in Busan, Korea. An official award ceremony will be held on 26 October during the IEC Council Open Session. Winners will receive a monetary prize (USD 20 000 for first place, USD 15 000 the second place and USD 6 000 each for third place) which has been financed by the KATS sponsorship programme. Award winners have been selected based on the quality of the analysis and the originality of the research.

The IEC congratulates this year's winners of the IEC - IEEE - KATS Challenge. We were impressed by the high calibre of the submissions received and the creativity and insight of all participants. We hope to stimulate further academic debate on the challenges of standardization and the importance of standardization in helping to meet global challenges , said Jan-Henrik Tiedemann, IEC Academy Manager.

With the IEC - IEEE - KATS Challenge, the IEC seeks to strengthen the link between the standardization and academic communities. Recognizing the unique perspective provided by academics, the IEC will continue to support projects that can stimulate debate and bring new insight on the development and impact of international standards.

The IEC also provides tools to help professionals continue their learning through high quality training, webinars, and regional/national workshops for the global IEC community. For further information, please visit https://www.iec.ch/academy/.

About IEC

The IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) is the world's leading organization that prepares and publishes globally relevant International Standards for all electric and electronic devices and systems. It brings together 171 countries; 86 are Members (National Committees) and 85 are Affiliates, developing countries that benefit from IEC work without the burden of membership.

Together they represent more than 99% of the world population and world electricity generation. More than 20 000 experts cooperate on the global IEC platform and many more in each member country.

They ensure that products work everywhere safely and efficiently with each other. The IEC also supports all forms of conformity assessment and administers four Conformity Assessment Systems that certify that components, equipment and systems used in homes, offices, healthcare facilities, public spaces, transportation, manufacturing, explosive environments and during energy generation conform to them.

IEC work covers a vast range of technologies: power generation (including all renewable energy sources), transmission, distribution, smart grid & smart cities, batteries, home appliances, office and medical equipment, all public and private transportation, semiconductors, fibre optics, nanotechnology, multimedia, information technology, and more. It also addresses safety, EMC, performance and the environment.
