The Technical Steering Committee (TSC) oversees the design and development activities within the AllSeen Alliance, as outlined in the TSC Charter.  The TSC is responsible for coordinating the simultaneous release process; setting release quality standards; implementing technical best practices (including the Development Process); instantiating Working Groups; allocating AllSeen Alliance resources to Projects; monitoring technical progress; mediating technical conflicts between committers and project leads; and organizing inter-project collaboration. The TSC will define the AllSeen Alliance's release vehicles, and will serve as the AllSeen Alliance's liaison with other technical consortia and groups. The upcoming meeting schedule and minutes are available on the TSC Wiki page. 

The Committers of each Working Group will elect a Chair, who will be a representative on the TSC.  In addition, each Premier member of the project will have a seat on the TSC unless otherwise represented by a Working Group Chair. The TSC is currently composed of the following members:
