IEEE and ISOC held its second Fellowship Exchange Pilot Program at the IEEE 802® Plenary session from 13-18 March 2016, in Macau. This program provides participants from emerging economies with the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of the open, collaborative standards development process. It also enables them to obtain a deeper understanding of the relationship between standards and their impact to industry and policy environments. The next session of the program will take place during the IETF 95 meeting in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from 3-8 April 2016.
