The importance of contributions
• Contributions provide the vital “fuel” to the work of
Study Group 17.
• Well-written and well-structured contributions are
essential to the success of Study Group 17 work
programme.
• Our collaborative work towards global ICT security
standards depends wholly on the timely submission of
relevant, quality contributions by delegates to the ITU-T
SG17.

• within the mandate of Study Group 17, or related to the
Questions under study
Such as
• Inputs/comments against SG17 study items and work
items under development.
• New work item proposals.
• Organization and working methods of SG17.
• Material for information or for discussion.

SG17 is interested in receiving
Contributions from developing
countries, which address
• Experiences and best practices of developing countries
in the implementation of security standards;
• Review, and comments on existing ITU-T security
Recommendations, or inputs to the current work items
under study of SG17;
• Requirements/needs from developing countries for new
technical security standards.

Where to find information on
submitting contributions to ITU-T
• General directives on the preparation and submission of
contributions are set out in the ITU-T A-series
Recommendations.
• Rec. ITU-T A.1 covers the submission and processing
of contributions, i.e. deadlines, posting, patent/licensing
declarations.
• Rec. ITU-T A.2, including its Appendix, provides
guidelines on content, mechanics and formatting.

Contributions should be concise
and universal
• Concisely drafted and clearly written, comprehensive,
universally understood.
• Not using technical jargon peculiar to an author’s country.
• Using international terminology and units (e.g. ISO/IEC
system of units and UTC universal time).
• In one or more of the official languages of the Union.
(alternative submission deadlines apply if translation required)

• A contribution should start with a Heading and an
Abstract as independent sections.
• Main text of contribution should have 2 sections:

1. Rationale (or Discussion)
 2. Proposal (or Conclusion).
• Supplementary sections such as annexes, if
required.
• Patent and licensing declaration, if relevant.
Note: Guidelines for structure of main text do not apply to

Source (Member State, Sector Member, Academia,
Associate), Title of Contribution, Contact Information of
contributor.
2. The Abstract
• Very important section, which summarises content and
aim of contribution. 150-200 words.
• Should enable readers to determine quickly whether of

Proposal - Conclusion
4. The Proposal and/or The Conclusion
• Main text should end with a Conclusion and ideally a
concrete Proposal for moving work forward.
• A Proposal is used when offering suggestions for
acceptance by meeting (e.g. solutions, plans to be
implemented). It requests decisions or actions.
• A Conclusion is used when contribution is for information
only. It summarizes observations.
• When both are used, Proposal follows Conclusion.

Supplementary Sections
• Supporting/more detailed information that can interrupt
the flow of ideas in main text, should be placed in
supplementary sections.
• These can include annexes, appendices, references and
attachments.
• These should be very relevant to the contribution and
limited in length & number.

Mechanics and Format
• Page Format: A4 format whenever possible.
• Clause numbering: Contribution should be structured
logically and, using discrete clauses/subclauses for
different levels of detail.
(e.g. 1, 1.1, 1.2, 1.2.1)
• Figures and diagrams must be clear, legible in A4.
• Formulae – Mathematical formulae should only be
presented for explaining texts. Details of how they are
derived should be avoided.

Mechanics and Format (cont’d)
• Quotations: Simple reference to doc/para no. of existing
texts or key phrase. No lengthy quotes.
• References to other ITU-T texts to be made by using the
official document number, e.g. COM 17 – R10.
• Revision to existing text – If contribution proposes
modifications to an existing text, e.g. a draft
Recommendation, the portions of the text to be
modified should be clearly shown with revision marks.
