The main goal of the workshop was to improve and finalize the description of the draft Charter for a potential Smart Cities Interest Group so that we can launch the Interest Group and start further discussions on (1) interoperability for Web-based Smart City services and (2) use cases and requirements that W3C specifications need to meet to support Smart City services.

Workshop discussions:

  • Identified Smart Cities standardization stakeholders to drive the development of Web standards aligned with the real needs of Smart Cities
  • Clarified reasonable applications for Smart Cities technologies
  • Pointed out how to improve the draft Charter for the potential Smart Cities Interest Group

As a concrete next step following the workshop, W3C will finalize the draft Charter hoping to launch a Smart Cities Interest Group and start further discussion within the group.

We thank all the presenters and the participants for making this event a success.
