Interested in how the development of international best practices and standards may support your efforts in becoming an even smarter city? The IEC Smart City Systems Committee is running a free, one-day interactive workshop. Leading international standardization and smart city experts are expected to attend from across the 11 nations including China, India, Japan, Korea, Germany, Mexico, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.

This International Smart Cities Workshop is being held as an integral part of the IEC Systems Committee (SyC) on Smart Cities meetings. It will provide a great opportunity to collaborate with other smart city experts to experience how a systems approach can help scope out and design smart city initiatives and gain in-depth insights into the prospects and solutions offered by international smart city standardization.

THE GOALS OF THE WORKSHOP ARE TO:
• Inform the IEC SyC Smart Cities standard activities to promote government, industry, and academia involvement in Smart Cities standard development;
• Understand the standard area needs for government and various industry segments by the experts in the IEC SyC on Smart Cities; and
• Promote the interoperability and scalability of smart city applications and services through the adoption and implementation based on the smart cities standards.

HOW THE IEC SUPPORTS SMART CITIES GLOBALLY

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) develops International Standards for electrical, electronic and related technologies. The IEC Smart City Systems Committee focuses on strategic guidance and good practice standards to help city authorities manage the electrical and electronic aspects of making their cities smarter. It works with cities and their service providers to identify key needs and then to understand how it can bring the expertise of the nearly 20,000 IEC standards experts from industry, commerce, government, academia and consumer groups, to help find solutions.
