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.

Describing Computing Research Challenges

July 22nd, 2011 / in research horizons / by Erwin Gianchandani

In the past year, we’ve developed a set of brochures describing fundamental computing research challenges in a few areas of national priority, including healthcare, sustainability (spanning energy, transportation, and environment), and education. These brochures — based entirely on white papers prepared by the research community — are intended to appeal to a broad audience. Browse through them after the jump…

Data Analytics:  Advancing Discovery in Science and Engineering Smart Health and Wellbeing
A Sustainable Future Toward Personalized Education

…and let us know what you think by commenting in the space below.

We hope you’ll help circulate these brochures throughout your labs, classrooms, departments, and beyond.

Depending on the interest, we’ll do more of these in the future.

Special thanks to the folks at Xenophon Strategies — a Washington, D.C.-based PR firm — who worked with us on this effort.
