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.

WSRD Workshop VIII: "Wireless Spectrum Sharing: Enforcement Frameworks, Technology and R&D"
Please visit our Webcast Page to access the webcast recording
The Wireless Spectrum R&D Interagency Working Group (WSRD) will hold a workshop, “Wireless Spectrum Sharing: Enforcement Framework, Technology and R&D”, on May 5th, 2016, from 8:00 AM to 5:00PM, at Google, 25 Massachusetts Ave. NW, #900, Washington, DC 20001. The workshop will focus on spectrum sharing enforcement issues and will provide a forum for information exchange and the identification of relevant research and development opportunities. WSRD members will use information gathered from this workshop to develop recommendations for the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP).
This workshop series stems from the Presidential memorandum issued on June 14, 2013, Expanding America’s Leadership in Wireless Innovation and has focused on ways to make more wireless spectrum available by encouraging shared access by commercial and Federal users. As with any sharing environment, such as the way aircraft share airspace or vehicles share the roads, underlying enforcement principles for spectrum sharing are critical. Industry and government innovators agree that enforcement is a necessary component for any dynamic spectrum sharing environment to be meaningful and effective.
Enforcement needs for wireless spectrum sharing extends well beyond just the enforcement of usage rights (i.e. interference protection). A complete enforcement regime (1) should explicitly recognize that enforcement requirements are bi-lateral (i.e., apply to the primary user as well as the secondary user), and (2) should also include the collective action rights - which encompass management rights (determining which users get to transmit when), exclusion rights (who gets to transmit at all) and alienation rights (who gets to sell the resource). To support a dynamic spectrum sharing environment, consistent and sustainable technology mechanisms are needed to monitor, detect, evaluate or adjudicate, classify, inform, and enforce compliance of the enforcement regime. Enforcement frameworks can rely on central architectures based on data clouds or device level distributed architectures, or a combination of both. This may entail adopting new standards or developing automated enforcement mechanisms and compliance certification methods for next-generation technologies to support the enforcement regime. Other issues to be considered include enforcement-related privacy and security issues, and the economic tradeoffs in ex ante and ex post enforcement mechanisms.
The main goals of this workshop are to:
