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.

A National Research Agenda for Intelligent Infrastructure

May 4th, 2017 / in Announcements, CCC, pipeline, policy, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

CCC Chair Beth Mynatt contributed to this post.  The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) in collaboration with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association (ECEDHA) recently released eight white papers describing a collective research agenda for intelligent infrastructure. These papers draw from a large network of expertise including CCC Council members, former CCC Council members, CRA Board members, and other members of the academic and industry communities for a total of 40 different authors from 27 different institutions. We will be blogging about each paper over the next few weeks. Today, we start with the overview paper: A National Research Agenda for Intelligent Infrastructure. Our infrastructure touches the day-to-day life […]

Summit on Advances in Programming Languages 2017 Opportunity for Junior Researchers

February 15th, 2017 / in Announcements, pipeline / by Khari Douglas

Rastislav Bodik (University of Washington) and Shriram Krishnamurthi (Brown University) have announced an exciting, new opportunity for junior researchers – either young faculty or older graduate students – to apply to attend and speak at the Summit on Advances in Programming Languages (SNAPL) 2017. SNAPL is a biennial conference for discussions on innovation in programming languages, from foundations to applications and across industry and academia. SNAPL seeks paper submissions from researchers and practitioners on programming language topics that will generate a good discussion amongst attendees. Bodik and Krishnamurthi plan to bring in less established researchers to generate discussions from different perspectives and provide an opportunity for junior researchers to share their […]

Contributions of PCAST

January 17th, 2017 / in Announcements, CCC, pipeline, policy, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

Contributions to this post were made by CCC Chair Beth Mynatt and CCC Director Ann Drobnis. The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) is an advisory group of the nation’s leading scientists and engineers, dating back to the Eisenhower Administration, who advise the President on science, technology, and innovation. This Administration’s PCAST is one of the most distinguished and diverse in history. Former Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Chair, Susan L. Graham from the University of California, Berkeley, is one of the current 19 members who give recommendations to the President. Over the past eight years, this PCAST has accomplished a number of remarkable activities. The CCC as […]

South Big Data Hub DataStart Highlights

October 13th, 2016 / in CS education, pipeline / by Khari Douglas

As a result of the CCC / CRA Industry Academic Survey, conducted in spring of 2015 and the CCC Industry Roundtable Discussion held on July 24, 2015, the CCC partnered with the four NSF-sponsored Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs (BD Hubs) for a program on industry-academic collaboration. Each Hub is charged with addressing regional specific big data challenges. Areas of emphasis for the South BD hub include coastal hazards, industrial big data, and health analytics, among others. As one of its CCC-sponsored activities, the South BD Hub ran the DataStart internship program, which paired graduate students from the South Regional Innovation Hub with data-related startup companies for three months. The […]
