The 24th Annual NIST-ATIS Synchronization Workshop

March 9 - 12, 2015
San Jose, California



Time and frequency synchronization are critical enablers of next generation communications systems as well as the Internet of Things. The NIST-ATIS workshop highlights both developing sync requirements and deployment strategies for new sync systems and standards. This makes WSTS your primary source for information about the effects of evolving synchronization systems on network operators and equipment manufacturers.

Call for Technical Papers

Deadline for submissions: December 12, 2014

WSTS comprehensively covers the applications that depend on time and sync as well as solutions to the most pressing problems being encountered with these. It will address solutions currently being deployed, those upcoming in the near future, and innovations that take a longer-term view.

The Workshop program will be organized across the three days as follows:

Day One: Out Now

  • Applications that need time:  Why are we here?
  • Existing solutions and limitations


Day Two: Coming Soon

  • Unsolved timing needs
  • Timing mitigation options


Day Three: In the Future

  • Developing Standards—futuristic standards
  • Emerging Topics

** Test and Measurement papers are also solicited, and will be applied to the appropriate session in the list above.

New for 2015 - Call for Technical Demonstrations

Deadline for submissions: December 12, 2014

Hardware demonstrations of synchronization equipment and methods will be invited from the exhibitors.  These are meant to illustrate principles, such as real world connection issues and examples of the effects of noisy networks and asymmetry on 1588 timing streams, and are not meant as product promotions.
