About IEEE Smart Cities

The IEEE Smart Cities Initiative brings together IEEE’s broad array of technical societies and organizations to advance the state of the art for smart city technologies for the benefit of society and to set the global standard in this regard by serving as a neutral broker of information amongst industry, academic, and government stakeholders.

The mission of the IEEE Smart Cities initiative is:

  1. To be recognized as the authoritative voice and leading source of credible technical information and educational content within the scope of smart cities identified below.

  2. To facilitate and promote both the collaborative and individual work of its Member Societies regarding smart city technology.

Scope - The IEEE Smart Cities initiative identifies and further develops technical best practices across the following functional and application domains within the context of urban infrastructure systems.  These domains and the elements within them comprise the smart city framework which will be used to guide the technical activities of this initiative. This framework may be expanded and refined as deemed necessary by the steering committee.
