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.

    The PostDoc BP-Arizona program will build upon existing best practices and implement innovative programs designed to build an Arizona-wide post-doc “community” in the broadest sense of the word. We seek to transform the training of postdocs in computer science and engineering (CS&E), and in so doing, provide a model for postdoc training across disciplines.
