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.

CCC Seeking Nominations for New Council Members

ccc-logo3The CCC is charged with catalyzing and empowering the U.S. computing research community to articulate and advance major research directions for the field. To do so, the CCC needs truly visionary leaders — people with great ideas, sound judgment, and the willingness to work hard to see things to completion. Please help the computing community by nominating such people for the Council.

For more information about the CCC, please visit and

The CCC is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) under a cooperative agreement with the Computing Research Association (CRA). The work of the CCC is carried out by an active and engaged Council, currently led by Susan Graham (University of California- Berkeley) as chair and Greg Hager (Johns Hopkins University) as vice-chair. The members of the Council are appointed by CRA in consultation with NSF, with staggered three-year terms. In the aggregate, the Council must reflect the full breadth of the computing research community — research area, institutional character, geographic diversity, etc. The CCC is staffed by a full-time director, Ann Drobnis.

The CCC’s Nominating Subcommittee invites nominations (including self-nominations) for members to serve on the CCC Council for the next three years, beginning July 1, 2014.

Please send nominations, together with the information below, to by 11:59pm EST on Thursday, March 6, 2014. The subcommittee’s recommendations will serve as input to CRA and NSF, who will make the final selection.

  1. Name, affiliation, and email address of the nominee.
  2. Areas of research expertise.
  3. Previous significant service to the research community and other relevant experience, with years it occurred (no more than *five* items).
  4. A brief biography or curriculum vitae of the nominee.
  5. A statement from the nominee of less than one page, supporting his or her nomination by describing his or her ideas for, and commitment to, advancing the work of the CCC in engaging broader communities, finding wider funding sources, and encouraging new research directions.
