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 2018 kickoff conference for the GCTC – Smart and Secure Cities and Communities Challenge (SC3) is February 6-7, 2018 in Washington, DC. You can see preliminary agenda and speakers list here.

The goal of kickoff conference is to encourage smart community/city and Internet of Things (IoT) stakeholders to build teams to address shared issues in various sectors such as transportation, public safety, utility, wireless, city data, agriculture & rural, and data governance/exchange. 2018 round will encourage participating teams to have an additional focus on security and privacy as the first order concern, as well as all existing GCTC goals such as replicability, scalability, and sustainability.
