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.

Reminder: Proposals for Visioning Activities due December 1

Making Ideas happenIn September, the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) put out a call for visioning proposals for workshops that will create exciting visions and agendas for research at the frontiers of computing.  Proposals are due December 1, 2013.

From the solicitation:

Successful workshops will articulate new research visions, galvanize community interest in those visions, and mobilize support for those visions from the computing research community, government leaders, and funding agencies…Proposals are encouraged across the full spectrum of theoretical and applied work related to the creation and application of information technologies as well as their use in addressing important scientific or societal challenges…Budgets can range in size from $10,000 to as much as $200,000, depending on the size and scope of effort that will be supported…Proposals may be submitted by email anytime to as an attachment in PDF, Postscript, or Word.  For CCC planning purposes, proposals with start dates prior to September 2014 should be submitted by 1 December 2013.

Examples of past visioning activities funded by the CCC cover a broad range of computer and information science and engineering topics, such as Robotics, Online EducationHealth ITSpatial Computing, and Disaster Management (see the full set of funded activities here).

For more information, see the complete call for proposals. And if you have questions, please e-mail us.

We look forward to receiving your ideas for the future of our field!
