  • Aspect to be covered: accessibility accommodations for persons with disabilities
  • ITU-T A.8

  • Approval for technical Recommendations (i.e. not having regulatory/policy implications)
  • Issues
  • None
  • ITU-T A.4, A.5,and A.6

  • A.4 - Communication between ITU-T and Forums and Consortia
  • A.6 - Cooperation and exchange of information between ITU-T and national and regional standards development organizations
  • A.5 - References to documents of other organizations in ITU-T Recommendations
  • Issues
  • Nested referencing not addressed in A.5
  • Discussions on updating A-Series Supplement 3 may lead to clarifications in A.4
  • ITU-T A.23
  • Collaboration with ISO and IEC
  • Scope
  • Process to work collaboratively with ISO/IEC JTC1 and development of Common/Twin texts
  • Details in Annex A
  • Issues
  • Discussion on a procedure for common appointment of registration authorities
  • Limited to collaboration with JTC1; no procedure exists for IEC-only or ISO-only texts
  • Collaboration mechanismsCurrent ITU-T collaboration toolbox
  • Inter-SG collaboration
  • JCAs (high-level coordination on a theme – e.g. IPTV, IoT, Cloud)
  • GSI (technical work in co-located “thematic” Rapporteur Group meetings)
  • Reaching across to other ITU Sectors and external organizations
  • ITU-T A.23: Only with JTC1
  • Focus Groups
  • ITU-T tool open to non-members
  • Have own rules subject to the rules in ITU-T A.7
  • JCAs (Joint Coordination Activities), GSI (Global Standards Initiative) and TSR (Technical and Strategic Review)(defined in ITU-T A.1, clause 2.2)What they are, how they interwork, and some current issuesJCAs - Joint Coordination Activities
  • First use: JCA-NGN, circa 2004 (WTSA-04)
  • Currently, seven JCAs running; four JCAs concluded
  • It is a coordination mechanism for a certain topic
  • ITU-T groups
  • Can be open to other (non-ITU-T, non-ITU) entities
  • Open to participation of representatives of groups
  • Not intended for the membership-at-large
  • Connected to a Study Group or TSAG
  • GSIs (1/2)
  • GSIs are not a group, but a bundling of “birds-of-a-feather” Questions, or
  • A way of calling collocated, coordinated Rapporteur Group meetings
  • Thematic:
  • IPTV, IoT (still running)
  • IdM (concluded)
  • Expert participation: expected to do technical work
  • Coordination: via the associated JCA
  • GSIs (2/2)
  • Differences from a Rapporteurs Group.
  • For GSIs:
  • Documentation handled/coordinated by TSB
  • Some use DMS for document posting
  • Announced by Circulars
  • A GSI is not a group, but an assemblage of groups
  • Hence: no plenary, no chairman
  • TSRWell…
  • A TSR is the joint session of Questions participating in a GSI
  • For all practical purposes: they are the Plenary of a GSI
  • TSR Convener: chairs the TSR sessions
  • Effectively: the chairman of the GSI
  • Two TSRs per GSI: Opening and closing
  • TSRs are optional
  • Issues with JCAs
  • Sometimes, the line between coordination and development is crossed by JCAs
  • E.g. the “JCA that wanted to be a Focus Group”
  • Development of technical work, beyond coordination tools (roadmaps, gap analyses, etc)
  • Issues with TSRsAdvisory in nature“Decisions” are not bindingDifficult issues need to be referred to the associated JCAAnalysis of ITU-T tool set
  • FGs are a complementary tool to a GSI
  • FG are flexible but not always fit expectations in a competitive standardization environment
  • e.g. if participating non-ITU-T partners require an "equal partner" status.
  • A new mechanism seems needed to facilitate participation of non-ITU-T entities
  • Intra-ITU considerations: a cross-Sector platform
  • e.g. revival of Joint Rapporteur Group concept
  • Extra-ITU considerations: simple mechanism to create collaboration platforms on an equal-footing basis
  • e.g. incipient collaboration on intelligent transportation systems
  • Opportunities for contributionsOpportunities for contributions
  • Improve method for approval of new and revised Questions
  • An AAP for Questions?
  • Revision on the procedures for Focus Groups
  • Streamline and increase efficiency of JCAs, GSIs and TSRs
  • Consider mechanisms for efficient and attractive engagement of non-ITU-T entities
  • Get involved
  • Regional preparatory meetings proven platform
  • Regional groups should coordinate common proposals
  • TSAG meeting
  • Virtual meeting 17-18 April (2 hours daily)
  • 2 – 4 (am) July 2012 in Geneva
