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.

SDP Cross Agency and National Needs Summit This summit is to inform a crosscutting SDP research and technology agenda. It will provide a forum for bringing together policy makers, stakeholders, visionaries, and R&D leaders for software design and productivity research. The summit will build mutual understanding of agency needs and national priorities in SDP. Multitudes of fundamental advances in computer science have us poised for potential breakthroughs in SDP. Therefore, the time is right to assess what can be accomplished through new R&D investments. The summit will focus on the key issues of the SDP mission: to advance software engineering concepts, methods, techniques and tools that result in more usable, dependable, cost-effective, and sustainable software-intensive systems. The workshop will provide recommendations for action on the following topics:
1. Research Challenges. Identification of major challenges and opportunities for improving software affordability and responsiveness in development and sustainment efforts for safety and mission critical systems. Formulation of research and technology goals to address these key issues.
2. Software Assurance. Guidance and encouragement to certification authorities for qualifying new, more productive tools and methods for software design, development, test, verification, and sustainment leading to affordable certification of software-intensive systems.
3. Cost-Effectiveness. Development of software cost and schedule models that incorporate predictions of the impact of new technologies and provide reasonable predictability of cost, schedule and success for software projects.
