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.

Last year, the Computing Community Consortium and CRA’s Government Affairs Committee held the first Leadership in Science Policy Institute.  A total of 35 participants attended the institute, which featured a series of presentations from science policy experts, current and former Hill staff, and relevant agency and Administration officials.  Topics included the mechanics of the legislative process, serving on advisory committees, and interfacing with Federal agencies.

A second Leadership in Science Policy Institute will be held April 11-12, 2013 in Washington, DC.

Please discuss this opportunity with your colleagues, identify those you believe would be interested in participating, and submit nominations!

The deadline is Real Soon Now – December 14!
