ANNC: review of AAT ICAS standards
this announcement is subject to update. please cross-post as appropriate. apologies for duplicate posts.
Alliance for the Advancement of Technology (AAT at aatideas.org) is preparing for a revision of AAT ICAS (Integrated Chronological Applications System). specifying data formats for calendar dates and clock times, ICAS standards and resources can inform and benefit a comprehensive variety of different users and audiences.
in the context of _24 CGPM Convocation Draft Resolution A_, some initial (draft status) AAT review notes encompass revisions to SI (International System of Units, bipm.fr) and ICAS (aatideas.org). some preliminary AAT ICAS revision objectives include the following:
to prepare for specifications of SI units in terms of 'explicit-constant format'.
to specify a concept of 'scaleset' format for fixed and or coordinated measures of time.
to review ICAS to reflect style of _AAT ICAS Metrication Month poster 2010_, the _24 CGPM Convocation Draft Resolution A_. in addition to other standards developments.
timeframe schedules for developments of ICAS may very well involve more than a year or more than a decade.
metrication month projects (topics of metrication, communication, user experience, or similar) can consist of one or more of a poster, app, or other resource.
AAT ICAS hopes to have a new revision of the standards completed by Metrication Month 2012 (MMd2).
there may also be interest in developing an aatideas.org Almanac and Style Guide to be published or e published.
to volunteer for an ICAS review team, contact Ron Stone at ( e mail to firstname.lastname@example.org ).
AAT strives to coordinate ICAS with, rather than duplicate, the efforts of other standards developing organizations. to register an ICAS administrative license, contact ( e mail to email@example.com ).
more information about AAT and ICAS is available at ( web site www.aatideas.org ). any questions about this announcement can also be directed to Ron Stone via e mail at either of the above addresses.
