James W. Moore has been a driving force in unifying international standards for consistent software engineering guidelines. He has worked tirelessly at aligning the efforts of IEEE and ISO, the two principal standards development organizations. He was the head of the U.S. delegation to ISO/IEC JTC1/SC7 and led the development of U.S. positions on international standards issues. He provides strategic planning and guidance for the evolution of the IEEE Computer Society’s collection of standards. As the IEEE Computer Society liaison to ISO/IEC JTC1/SC7, Moore is responsible for a long-term harmonization program to ensure consistent standards that has already produced results. Since 1998, he has been one of the executive editors responsible for managing the IEEE Computer Society’s Guide to Software Engineering Body of Knowledge. It is recognized by both IEEE and ISO/IEC as the authoritative reference on codified software engineering knowledge.

An IEEE Fellow, Moore is a senior principal information systems engineer with The MITRE Corporation in McLean, Virginia.
