GCTC Tech Jam 2016
The Global City Teams Challenge (GCTC) Tech Jam will take place on the NIST campus in Gaithersburg, MD on March 22-23, 2016. The Tech Jam will provide opportunities for existing Action Clusters to present their project plans, discuss project measurements/KPIs and identify additional Action Cluster partners. It is also an opportunity for interested parties to create new Action Clusters. The first day of the Tech Jam will feature presentations by invited GCTC partners and smart city leaders, followed by the presentations from registered Action Clusters (i.e. GCTC teams). The second day of Tech Jam will focus on facilitated breakout sessions for team building and project planning. To register an Action Cluster and present at the Tech Jam, please find the instructions and a sample worksheet here.
IoT-Enabled Smart City Framework Workshop
NIST is establishing an international technical public working group to help develop an "IoT-Enabled Smart City Framework" that will identify pivotal points of interoperability across the many existing and deployed architectures. The motivation for this activity is the great interest in the Internet of Things (IoT) envisioned and deployed in smart cities around the world. At the present time, dozens of unconnected standardization and specification activities are competing for mind and market share throughout the world. This international group will be holding initial workshops immediately following the GCTC Tech Jam in the United States (March 24-25, 2016) and in Europe (April 14, 15 2016 in Rome).
