Workshop on Internet Standard Setting Research Methods

12 Jan 2022
Online - Online (France)


This workshop aims to showcase the broad range of research methods used by Internet governance scholars from all disciplines to study these standard-setting bodies, such as the IETF, IEEE, W3C, WHATWG, 3GPP, ITU-T, ITU-R. It is also open to the study of "de-facto standardisation" that takes place outside of formal organisations and processes (Musiani and Ermoshina, 2017). The workshop aims to provide an opportunity for scholars and researchers to: - Explore and perhaps discover qualitative and quantitative methods applicable to standard setting for information networks - Discuss the feasibility of applying specific methods, - Improve the understanding of specific methods - Identify new and existing data sources, - Share open research questions and work-in-progress on methods, - Receive feedback to improve the methods. We will cover the following topics during the workshop: Mixed Methods Lessons from studying non-Internet standard-setting bodies How to acquire data (standards, patents, conversations, outcome documents) Network analysis Computational methods Discourse analysis Ethnography The event will start with a Keynote speaker and we will have a round of brief presentations. We will also invite method experts to talk to these issues and the above mentioned topics. We will share the program with you in due course.
