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.

Heidelberg Laureate Forum logoPreparations for the fifth Heidelberg Laureate Forum are in full swing, and applications from young researchers to attend are now being accepted.

The Heidelberg Laureate Forum was created by the Klaus Tschira Foundation, the Heidelberg Institute of Theoretical Studies, ACM, the International Mathematical Union, and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters to provide an opportunity for young researchers to spend a week with winners of the Turing Award, Abel Prize, Nevanlinna Prize, and Fields Medal.

The fifth Heidelberg Forum will take place September 24-29, 2017 in Heidelberg, Germany. Applications will be accepted until February 14, 2017. You can submit online applications here. Successful candidates will be selected by an international committee of experts that will ensure only the most qualified candidates are invited.
