TAB and SAB High Level Alignment. The List of 11 SAB committees1: High Level Design Validation and Test (HLDVT); Design Automation and Test (DATE)

    TAB and SAB High Level Alignment

     1The List of 11 SAB committees:

    SAB Committee Scope

    Design Automation Standards Committee (DASC) The IEEE DASC is responsible for the standardization of Design Automation

    related standards in the IEEE. It is part of the Computer Society of the IEEE. It

    also operates under the auspices of the IEEE Standards Association.

    The biggest center of interest in the DASC has been around language based

    design and verification standards stemming from the key HDL standards VHDL

    and Verilog. From these have flowed standards for timing, synthesis, math

    routines, and test.

    Currently the emphasis of the group is growing to embrace system level

    requirements with standards being developed in analog-mixed signal and other

    extensions driven by these needs.

    Foundation for Intelligent and Physical Agents Standards FIPA is an IEEE Computer Society standards organization that promotes agent-2Committee (FIPASC) based technology and the interoperability of its standards with other


    FIPA, the standards organization for agents and multi-agent systems was

    officially accepted by the IEEE as its eleventh standards committee on 8 June


    FIPA was originally formed as a Swiss based organization in 1996 to produce

    software standards specifications for heterogeneous and interacting agents and

    agent based systems. Since its foundations, FIPA has played a crucial role in

    the development of agents standards and has promoted a number of initiatives

    and events that contributed to the development and uptake of agent technology.

    Furthermore, many of the ideas originated and developed in FIPA are now

    coming into sharp focus in new generations of Web/Internet technology and

     1 SAB WGs are not listed; these outnumber the TCs, but fall in high level alignment as described in chart. 2 Note FIPASC remains to be mapped as it is a recently joined SC.

    related specifications.

    In March 2005, the FIPA Board of Directors presented this opportunity to the

    entire FIPA membership, who unanimously voted to join the IEEE computer

    Society. Now, it is time to move standards for agents and agent-based systems

    into the wider context of software development. In short, agent technology

    needs to work and integrate with non-agent technologies. To this end, the IEEE

    Computer Society has formally accepted FIPA to become part of its family of

    standards committees.

    Information Assurance Standards Committee (IASC) The Task Force on Information Assurance (TFIA) champions a holistic approach

    to development of Information Assurance technology by asserting an Information

    Assurance view across numerous closely related technologies: networking,

    software engineering, distributed processing, pattern recognition, real time

    computing, visualization, cryptography, simulation, man-machine interface, data

    engineering, mass storage, and others. Providing a forum for open discussion

    that is identifiable to workers in Information Assurance, the TFIA participates in

    development of recommended practices and standards for Information


    Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) The IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) is chartered by

    the IEEE Computer Society Standards Activity Board to develop accredited

    technical standards, recommended practices, and guides for learning


    Local Area Networks/MAN Standards Committee (LMSC, 802) The IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee develops Local Area Network

    standards and Metropolitan Area Network standards. The most widely used

    standards are for the Ethernet family, Token Ring, Wireless LAN, Bridging and

    Virtual Bridged LANs. An individual Working Group provides the focus for each


    Microprocessors & Microcomputers Standards Committee To create, maintain, and encourage the use of IEEE standards for the

    (MMSC) engineering of computer systems involving microprocessor and floating-point

    architectures, buses, interconnects, sensors, microprocessor operating system

    interfaces, real-time operating systems, programming and object languages,

    data interchange, cryptographic hardware, and computer environmental


    Portable Applications Standards Committee (PASC) PASC is the IEEE's Portable Application Standards Committee. It is chartered

    with defining standard application service interfaces - most notably those in the

    POSIX family. PASC was formerly known as the Technical Committee on

    Operating Systems.

Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization The Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) is an international

    Standards Activity Committee (SISO-SAC) organization dedicated to the promotion of modeling and simulation

    interoperability and reuse for the benefit of a broad range of M&S communities Software & Systems Engineering Standards Committee To develop and maintain a family of software and systems engineering (S2ESC) standards that is relevant, coherent, comprehensive, and effective in use. These

    standards are for use by practitioners, organizations, and educators to improve

    the effectiveness and efficiency of their software engineering processes, to

    improve communications between acquirers and suppliers, and to improve the

    quality of delivered software and systems containing software.

    To develop supporting knowledge products that aid practitioners, organizations,

    and educators in understanding and applying our standards.

    To support and promote a Software Engineering Body of Knowledge,

    certification mechanisms for software engineering professionals, and other

    products contributing to the profession of software engineering. Storage Systems Standards Committee (SSSC) This SSSC sponsors all Storage System standards activities within the IEEE

    through the Computer Society.

    These activities may include full-use and trial-use standards; guides;

    recommended practices; and study groups. Test Technology Standards Committee (TTSC) The Test Technology Technical Council supports the development and

    maintenance of the following IEEE standards:

    An overview of Test Technology standards:

    IEEE 1149.4: Mixed Signal Test Bus

    IEEE Standard 1149.6: Boundary Scan Testing of Advanced Digital

    SAB -EPEAT EPEAT is a system to help purchasers in the public and private sectors evaluate,

    compare and select desktop computers, notebooks and monitors based on their

    environmental attributes. EPEAT also provides a clear and consistent set of

    performance criteria for the design of products, and provides an opportunity for

    manufacturers to secure market recognition for efforts to reduce the

    environmental impact of its products.

    SAB Standard Upper Ontology Welcome to the Standard Upper Ontology Working Group (SUO WG) website.

    The SUO WG is developing a Standard that will specify an upper ontology to

    support computer applications such as data interoperability, information search

    and retrieval, automated inferencing, and natural language processing.

    SAB- Musical Applications Using XML This project will develop an XML application defining a standard language for

    symbolic music representation. The language will be a meta-representation of music information for describing and processing said music information within a multilayered environment, for achieving integration among structural, score, MIDI, and digital sound levels of representation. Furthermore, the proposed

    standard should integrate music representation with already defined and

    accepted common standards. The standard will be accepted by any kind of

    software dealing with music information, e.g. score editing, OMR systems, music performance, musical databases, and composition and musicological applications.

     3 Expect TCDE, TCDL to map to SSSC, IASC, and S2ESC because these technologies impact them. Or there should be SCs for data engineering and digital libraries. Factoid: the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA, a digital library organization) is deeply interested in information assurance standards.
