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.

For those of you who have been regulars of the CCC Blog since the early days (back in late 2008), thanks for continuing to click on to us.

For the rest of you — we’ve seen a surge in traffic in the last year, so many of you are new subscribers/readers — we thought we would take a moment to provide some background about the Computing Community Consortium (CCC). In particular, at the Computing Research Association’s (CRA) biennial Snowbird Conference this week, the CCC is rolling out a new brochure that summarizes its brief history, key goals, and primary activities (following the link):

  • A Leadership in Science Policy Institute, a daylong symposium in Washington, DC, that aims to educate a small cadre of computing researchers on how science policy in the U.S. is formulated and how our government works. The next LiSPI will take place in spring 2013, and we’ll have more in this space as the details become available.

Please take just five minutes to review the brochure (click on the image above) and forward it on to your colleagues. And if you are interested in getting involved in any of the activities listed, or if you have ideas for new and related opportunities, please e-mail me!

***Updated Tuesday, Aug. 7th at 12:35pm EDT: We’re also making available a short video presentation about the CCC:
