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.


Deborah Crawford to receive 2010 Presidential Rank Award

October 21st, 2010 / in awards / by Ed Lazowska

Deborah Crawford, who recently left her position as NSF’s Deputy Assistant Director for CISE (Jeannette Wing’s right-hand person) to become Vice Provost for Research at Drexel University, will receive a 2010 Presidential Rank Award.

The Presidential Rank Awards have been given annually by the President of the United States since the establishment of the government’s Senior Executive Service in 1978.  The Award honors high-performing senior career employees for “sustained extraordinary accomplishment.”

This certainly characterizes Debbie, whose huge contributions to NSF, the computing research community, and the Computing Community Consortium will be sorely missed.

Congratulations Debbie!
