The annual IEEE 1588 Conferences began in 2003. Each conference has featured presentations by industry, academic and government representatives on a variety of topics related to IEEE 1588 technical specifications and issues, implementations and applications. The 2006 Conference will follow the successful format of the prior conferences, and will provide a forum for reporting on technical issues, product development and application experience based on IEEE 1588. The conference will include a tutorial for newcomers and a plug-fest to explore the interoperability of IEEE 1588 implementations.
IEEE 1588 is a standard for a precision clock synchronization protocol for networked measurement and control systems.
