The Group intends to: establish a framework of ICT over WPT; consider the communication architecture and communication entities required for new WPT technologies; develop a harmonized vocabulary for WPT; and prepare subsequent work items for these topics in JTC 1. Any interested stakeholder with relevant expertise is invited to join the Incubator Group by contacting Dr. Kahng at kahng@korea.ac.kr. The U.S. leads ISO/IEC JTC 1, with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) holding the secretariat and Karen Higginbottom of HP acting as chairperson. The InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards (INCITS) serves as the Administrator of the ANSI-accredited U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to JTC 1. INCITS is an ANSI member and accredited standards developer.
