Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

CRA and CCC Promote “Research Highlight of the Week”

October 31st, 2008 / in resources / by Peter Lee

As recently announced on the Computing Research Policy Blog, the CRA and CCC web sites are now providing a weekly feature called “Computing Research Highlight of the Week.” If you are doing computing research, you are invited to submit your own work for possible inclusion in this weekly feature.

These highlights are designed to provide easily digestible, compelling nuggets of computing research work. Members of Congress, the Administration, and funding agency managers and directors are some of the main audiences for these web pages. We believe the highlights should also prove to be useful for the entire research community. The highlights can be accessed directly, received by email, RSS feed, or even embedded in your own web page.

The current Computing Research Highlight of the Week describes a new algorithm from UCSD researchers that performs route computation in a way that may lead to major improvements in network efficiency. Check it out — it is punchy, informative, and makes good use of some simple graphics while at the same time providing links to the scientific publication and full press release.

So, please submit your own highlights! The response thus far has been very good, and we expect that many people outside of our community, including key decision makers, will make good use of the information.
