The IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee develops and maintains networking standards and recommended practices from body area to metropolitan area networks, using an open and accredited process, and advocates them on a global basis. Among its working groups 802.11, 802.15, 802.16, 802.19 and 802.22 focus on wireless communication. In this talk, we review those task groups' current projects and activities. Some of the projects we discuss are about V2X communications, visible light communications and full duplex communications. We will provide suggestions on how researchers from academia can contribute and benefit from the 802-standardization process.
