Other Society Events

In lieu of a SAM in 2008 an event was organized at ITU in Geneva, and an additional one day workshop in 2004 was organised in collaboration with the Institute for Informatics University of Göttingen.

ITU-T Meetings on Languages

The Society is recognised by ITU-T as a body that contributes to ITU-T standards for the ITU System Design Languages. Society members comment on the ITU-T work and there is a liaison procedure with the result that documents produced by Society members are considered by ITU-T. Involved Society members can be invited experts at the ITU-T meetings.

During Autumn of 2016 the ITU held the World Telecommunication Standards Assembly (WTSA) at which decisions were made about the Study Group to carry out further study and maintenance of the ITU System Design Languages. For the 2017-2020 period the System Design Languages issues will continue to be covered by Study Group 17.

Due to COVID-19 the Autumn 2020 World Telecommunication Standards Assembly (WTSA) was postponed and the 2017-2020 period extended. A final one day meeting of SG17 is planned for 07 January 2022 and WTSA20 was scheduled for 01-09 March 2022.

The first SG17 meeting for the 2022 to 2025 study period was held in May 2022.
