INCITS Seeks Additional US Experts for INCITS/Smart Cities, US TAG to JTC 1/WG 11 on Smart Cities
The InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards (INCITS) is coordinating US efforts to the newly established ISO/IEC JTC 1/WG 11 on Smart Cities and seeks additional US experts to join the US TAG or mirror committee, INCITS/Smart Cities.
JTC 1 published a preliminary report on the emerging area of Smart Cities in 2014.

- Serve as the focus of and proponent for JTC 1's Smart Cities standardization program.
- Develop foundational standards for the use of ICT in Smart Cities - including the Smart City ICT Reference Framework and an Upper Level Ontology for Smart Cities - for guiding Smart Cities efforts throughout JTC 1 upon which other standards can be developed.
- Develop a set of ICT related indicators for Smart Cities in collaboration with ISO/TC 268.
- Develop additional Smart Cities’ standards and other deliverables that build on these foundational standards.
- Identify JTC 1 (and other organization) subgroups that are developing standards and related material that contribute to Smart Cities, and where appropriate, investigate ongoing and potential new work that contributes to Smart Cities.
- Develop and maintain liaisons with all relevant JTC 1 subgroups.
