ISO WG 42: Seoul

(Another old post moved off my web page to this blog.)

I just returned from the first ISO/IEC JTC1/SC7 WG 42 meeting in Seoul. WG 42 is the ISO working group managing the joint ISO, IEEE revision of IEEE Std 1471, one of my long-term projects.

The meeting was quite thought-provoking with a lot of level-setting of the participants; familiar with the current standard to varying extents, and discussions of the scope of the revision. The meeting minutes will be written up separately.

Visiting Seoul was quite enjoyable because the weather was beautiful, the people were friendly, and Seoul is very easy to get around. This picture, which now inhabits my laptop desktop, is the from the Gyeongbokgung Palace: the Palace of Shining Happiness.
