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.

De Lange Conference X: Humans, Machines, and the Future of workThe De Lange Conference X has released a call for posters for inclusion in their conference, Humans, Machines and the Future of Work. The conference, organized by Moshe Vardi and co-sponsored by The Computing Research Association, will bring together members of computing, economics, and social sciences on December 5th-6th at Rice University to discuss the possible impact of advances in computing on the future of work. The call for posters is below:

The De Lange Conference X seeks poster submissions, which describe recently completed work or work in progress, on the subject of Humans, Machines, and The Future of Work. Presenting a poster is a great way to get feedback on work that has not yet been published. Poster presentations will be an integral part of the conference, with a session for interactive discussion between presenters and attendees. In order to maintain interactive and exciting poster presentations, we expect at least one presenter per accepted poster to attend the conference. Posters and poster submissions must be in English. The submission should be in the form of a one-page abstract (in PDF), which will be made available to conference participants in a printed booklet. The abstract should provide some background, state the objective(s) of the work, describe the methodology of the work and its results, and state conclusions. For the final poster, presenters will have a display area sized 48’’x48’’. Poster presenters will receive a code for complimentary registration.

  • September 5, 2016 (extended): One-page abstract due
