A few weeks ago, we blogged about our new “Computing Research in Action” series, which is an expanded version of our “Highlight of the Week” feature. We’ve received several entries so far and will announce our first winner later this month. As a reminder, selected research projects will receive a $1500 travel award from the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) to cover conference travel to present the featured work.
If you are working on an exciting research project, and would like to submit an entry for consideration, it’s not too late! Please go to our Computing Research in Action website to fill out a short entry form.
Original blog post from last month:
Every week for the last several years, the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) has showcased an interesting computing (or related) research project as a “Highlight of the Week.” Today, in an effort to build upon the success of the Highlight feature, we are announcing an expanded version of this series called “Computing Research in Action.”
Through Computing Research in Action, the CCC will develop two- to five-minute video segments on selected research, covering the on-site production and editing costs of these clips. Computer and information scientists and engineers (faculty and students alike, we hope!) featured in these spots will have an opportunity to demonstrate their research projects and describe what lead to the interesting new results. It is our aim that these segments — to be showcased on CCC’s website, blog, and YouTube channel, and developed in partnership will local photographers and producers — will help communicate the myriad advances our field is enabling to the broader public. Please submit your own research for consideration!
And here’s an added incentive: the CCC will provide a $1,500 travel award to be used by a member of the research team to cover travel to a conference of his/her choosing, within six months of filming, to present the featured work.
To learn more, and to complete a very short web form to submit your research project for consideration, check out the Computing Research in Action website today! And please pass this announcement on to your colleagues and students to help us spread the word.
