JTC 1 established a Study Group on Smart Cities and confirmed its terms of reference. JTC 1 accepted the appointment of the Chinese National Body of Ms. Yuan Yuan to serve as convenor and Ms. Liu Tangli to serve as the secretary for the JTC 1 Study Group on Smart Cities.
- 2015-10, the 30th Meeting of ISO/IEC JTC 1 in Beijing, China
Contingent upon approval of a relevant NWIP, JTC 1 established JTC 1 Working Group 11 on Smart Cities which would directly report to JTC 1 and confirmed its terms of reference. China would take the responsibility of secretariat and JTC 1 appointed Ms. Yuan Yuan as the convenor and Ms. Liu Tangli as the secretary.
- 2016-11, the 31th Meeting of ISO/IEC JTC 1 in Lillehammer, Norway
JTC1 appointed Qian Heng as the JTC 1/WG 11 convenor with 3 years ’tenure.
Based on the resolution of 30th Meeting of ISO/IEC JTC 1 (ISO/IEC JTC 1 N 12864), JTC 1 established JTC 1 Working Group 11 on Smart Cities which would directly report to JTC 1 with the following terms of reference:
- 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
- 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.
- Engage with the community outside of JTC 1 to grow the awareness of, and encourage
engagement in, JTC 1 Smart Cities standardization efforts within JTC 1, forming liaisons as is needed.
