2. Scope

Based on the resolution of 30th Meeting of ISO/IEC JTC 1 (ISO/IEC JTC 1 N 12864), JTC 1 established Working Group 11 on Smart Cities which would directly report to JTC 1 with the following terms of reference:

1) Serve as the focus of and proponent for JTC 1’s Smart Cities standardization program.
2) 
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.
3) 
Develop a set of ICT related indicators for Smart Cities in collaboration with ISO/TC 268.
4) 
Develop additional Smart Cities’ standards and other deliverables that build on these foundational standards.
5) I
dentify 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.
6) 
Develop and maintain liaisons with all relevant JTC 1 subgroups.
7) 
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.
8) 
Ensure a strong relationship with Smart Cities activities in ISO and IEC.

WG 11 serves as the focus of and proponent for JTC 1’s Smart Cities standardization program. WG 11 continuously recognized the urgent and emerging demands for standards regarding smart city and related new ICT to support city services and constructions.

In Oct 2018, WG 11 completed Strategic White Paper on Smart City Standardization(ISO/IEC JTC 1 N 14000). WG 11 keeps pushing the standard projects forward and exploring the strategic topics on Semantic Interoperability of City Data, Software Platform for Open City Data, Standard for Logging Smart City Applications, Coordinating City Operations, Urban Operating System, Measurement of Smart City and City planning, smart modelling and simulation.
