About this Meeting

This meeting will focus on the future, on connecting with the user community and on collaborating with global standardization efforts. This is an appropriate time and place to engage in this discussion. The LTSC has completed all of the standards projects that were in the pipeline two years ago, with the expectation that the last one (RCD) will be submitted for final IEEE approval by the end of the year. Meanwhile, new requirements are being addressed by a variety of consortia and industry groups, underlying ICT infrastructure has evolved considerably, and opportunities for global collaboration are increasing. The Learning 2006 theme of "learning in a flat world" is very appropriate to our own situation, and we are fortunate to have the opportunity to take a bit of a breather and seriously discuss where and how we want to go next.


Morning: WG / SG meetings

  • LOM – status and coordination with DCMI and "LOMNext"
  • New competency Study Groups

Afternoon: Open discussion

  • The value and application of current LTSC standards
  • Intellectual property rights and other thorny issues

All persons interested in learning technology standards are invited to attend. The outcome of this meeting will be concrete actions that significantly influence the future of our standards, technology and industry.

Persons who wish to express or suggest concrete activities are welcome to present. Please send email to Chad Kainz ( if you would like to be on the afternoon agenda.
