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.

Arun Majumdar, the Director of ARPA-E, spoke at the University of Washington on February 18th regarding the energy challenges facing our nation. While his talk was not specifically oriented towards computer scientists, it is inspirational, and it is obvious that a broad range of advances in computer science are essential to creating a sustainable future for our nation and our world.

ARPA-E is a new office of the Department of Energy focused on extramural breakthrough research, in the DARPA tradition.
