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.

New NIH Grant Opportunity related to CCC Aging in Place Workshop

October 26th, 2015 / in Announcements / by Helen Wright

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has released a new grant called Collaborative Aging (in Place) Research Using Technology (CART) (U2C), which is a result of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) and National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Aging in Place Workshop called the Trans-NIH/Interagency Workshop on the Use and Development of Assistive Technology for the Aging Population and People with Chronic Disabilities that was held last year and produced this workshop report. From the Funding Opportunity Announcement (RFA-AG-16-021): The purpose of this Inter-Agency FOA is to develop and validate the infrastructure for rapid and effective conduct of future research utilizing technology to facilitate aging in place, with a special emphasis on people from underrepresented groups.  “Aging in […]

CCC Aging in Place Workshop Report

February 24th, 2015 / in CCC, workshop reports / by Helen Wright

The organizing committee for the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Trans-NIH/Interagency Workshop on the Use and Development of Assistive Technology for the Aging Population and People with Chronic Disabilities have released their workshop report. CCC partnered with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and hosted the visioning workshop which focused on technologies that will allow older adults and people with disabilities to “age in place,” remain in their homes longer, reduce health care costs and enhance quality of life. The workshop engaged a diverse set of experts – computer science researchers, medical practitioners, and government officials from numerous agencies (NIH, NSF, NIDRR, HUD, VA, FDA, CMS).  Videos of the workshop presentations as well as […]
