Celebrating World Standards Day

IEEE’s role in enabling the world to connect and communicate

The Institute, 8 October 2015

We communicate in many ways. Our gestures and expressions convey messages and signals. But without a doubt, our primary form of communication is language. We use it to express our opinions, thoughts, ideas, and reactions. But we often don’t think about technical standards as “the world’s common language,” which is the theme of World Standards Day on 14 October.
