This committee member event has an agenda packed with opportunities to find out about our latest standardization work, and gives you the opportunity to network with your peers.

Highlights of the day include:

  • The inaugural BSI Standards Awards including: Emerging Standards Maker, International Standards Maker, Leadership Award, and Wolfe Barry Medal
  • Keynote address from Dr Colin Adams on 'The Analytical Revolution – using standards to refine and commercialize big data'
  • Insight into how BSI is using semantic web technologies in their latest product development
  • How open meetings have been used in the revision of major standards
