The latest update from US NIST on crypto algorithm transitions is
Revision 1 (now in review) which, in section 9, contains an exhaustive list
of the
specific tags that NIST uses for all hash algorithms, including SHA3 modes.

Appendix A: Mitigating Risk When Using Algorithms and Keys for Legacy-Use
is worth citing (and reading).

"Transitions: Recommendation for Transitioning the Use of Cryptographic
Algorithms and Key Lengths"
