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.

Global City Teams Challenge logoThere are a number of Global Cities Teams Challenge (GCTC) SuperCluster activities coming up:

  • City Platform SuperCluster Workshop: Kansas City is hosting the GCTC City Platform SuperCluster Workshop on February 7-8, 2017, at the Think Big Partners. During the two-day workshop, the participants will come in with a list of problems and questions on City Platform and cross-cutting data management issues, and leave with a concept of how to solve that list while building a smart city. Registration is open at this website.

Additional notes that may be of interest to the GCTC community:

  • Smart City Operations and Platforms Engineering (SCOPE) in partnership with GCTC invites you to submit a paper to the second workshop on Smart City Operations and Platforms Engineering (SCOPE) on April 21st, 2017 in Pittsburg, PA. The workshop is being organized as part of the Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) Week. Many GCTC members are participating in the program committee and the selected papers will be included in the CPS Week proceedings. Here is the website to submit.
  • The draft Smart Cities and Communities Federal Strategy Plan, which was released on January 12th, is still available for public comment. The Strategic Plan offers a high-level framework to guide and coordinate smart city/community-related Federal initiatives, with an emphasis on local government and stakeholder engagement. The Plan describes central goals and strategic priorities for Federal agency activities and describes proposed next steps. Comments are due Feb. 28th, 2017 and detailed instructions for submission are provided here.
