The Big Data Interagency Working Group (BD IWG) works to facilitate and further the goals of the White House Big Data R&D Initiative.
The CPS IWG is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) research and development (R&D).
Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CSIA) Interagency Working Group coordinates the activities of the CSIA Program Component Area.
The Health Information Technology Research and Development Interagency Working Group coordinates programs, budgets and policy recommendations for Health IT R&D.
HCI&IM focuses on information interaction, integration, and management research to develop and measure the performance of new technologies.
HCSS R&D supports development of scientific foundations and enabling software and hardware technologies for the engineering, verification and validation, assurance, and certification of complex, networked, distributed computing systems and cyber-physical systems (CPS).
The HEC IWG coordinates the activities of the High End Computing (HEC) Infrastructure and Applications (I&A) and HEC Research and Development (R&D) Program Component Areas (PCAs).
LSN members coordinate Federal agency networking R&D in leading-edge networking technologies, services, and enhanced performance.
The purpose of the SPSQ IWG is to coordinate the R&D efforts across agencies that transform the frontiers of software science and engineering and to identify R&D areas in need of development that span the science and the technology of software creation and sustainment.
Formed to ensure and maximize successful coordination and collaboration across the Federal government in the important and growing area of video and image analytics
The Wireless Spectrum R&D (WSRD) Interagency Working Group (IWG) has been formed to coordinate spectrum-related research and development activities across the Federal government.
Eric Simmon is a systems expert in the Cyber Infrastructure Group at the National Institute of Standards of Technology (NIST). He graduated magna cum laude from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Worcester, MA) with an electrical engineering degree in 1989 and joined the National Institute of Standards and Technology to work on precision measurements for high voltage and high current. In 2003, he joined the EIG working on systems modeling and using modeling to improve the standards development process.
Mr. Simmon is a member of the NIST Smart Grid Infrastructure Task Force. He leads the NIST Smart Grid architecture effort and is the NIST representative to the SGIP Smart Grid Architecture Committee. Mr. Simmon is also responsible for EV (electric vehicle) to Grid interoperability standards at NIST and leads the SGIP Plug-in Electric Vehicle Task Group. In addition to his smart grid activities, Mr. Simmon is involved in a number of other information management activities, including chairing the iNEMI Product Lifecycle Information Management Technology Working Group and leading the data format sub-team in the IEC TC111 Material Declaration working group
