Details on the IEEE P2784 Guide for the Technology and Process Framework for Planning a Smart City

Sponsor: IEEE Communications Society/Standards Development Board -Tarek El-Bawab
Chair Jim Frazer,  
Staff Liason - Jennifer Santulli, IEEE

Scope: This guide provides a framework that outlines technologies and the processes for planning the evolution of a smart city. Smart Cities and related solutions require technology standards and a cohesive process planning framework for the use of the internet of things to ensure interoperable, agile, and scalable solutions that are able to be implemented and maintained in a sustainable manner. This framework provides a methodology for municipalities and technology integrators to use as a tool to plan for innovative and technology solutions for smart cities.

Time and Date

The workshop is scheduled for 1-5PM on February 6th the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld, 6677 Sea Harbor Drive Orlando, Florida 32821. It immediately follows the conclusion of the ARC Forum that will be held February 3-6
