Background:
The Emergency Services Workshop series is an ongoing effort in the emergency services community to coordinate global standards and technologies for emergency calling and emergency notification. The primary focus of the workshop series is foster coordination among the many standards development organizations (SDOs) involved in emergency services as they all work toward a global solution for emergency communications using Internet technologies. In addition, the workshops try to bring in operational and regulatory perspectives on emergency services, so that these experiences and requirements can be incorporated into ongoing technical development processes.

Participation is open  all stakeholders in the emergency communications system, including industry (e.g., equipment vendors or  telecommunications companies) as well as government (e.g., regulatory bodies or emergency response  organizations).
