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.

Blue Sky Ideas Conference Track held at International Symposium on Robotics Research (ISRR) 2017

December 20th, 2017 / in Announcements, CCC, Research News / by Helen Wright

Contributions to the following blog were made by former CCC Chair Gregory Hager. The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) recently sponsored a Blue Sky Ideas Conference Track at the International Symposium on Robotics Research (ISRR) in Puerto Varas, Chile on December 11-14, 2017. The purpose was to encourage papers submissions that describe visionary ideas, long term challenges, and opportunities in research that are outside of the current mainstream topics of the field and which will provoke discussion or debate. The 15 submissions reflected the breadth of areas and interests in robotics. Organized into three sessions, the papers ranged from the basics of materials and control for new robot designs, to ideas […]

NAACL 2018 Student Research Workshop

December 6th, 2017 / in Announcements, CCC, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

The 2018 NAACL Student Research Workshop (SRW) will be held in conjunction with NAACL HLT 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana on June 1-6th, 2018. The SRW gives student researchers in Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing (NLP) the opportunity to present their work and receive constructive feedback and mentorship by experienced members of the Association for Computational Linguistics community. General Invitation for Submission The SRW provides a venue for student researchers to present their work in computational linguistics and natural language processing. Students receive feedback from the general conference audience as well as from mentors specifically assigned according to the topic of their work. SRW is especially focused on supporting undergraduate students […]

Blue Sky Ideas Conference Track

September 26th, 2017 / in Announcements, CCC, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

Are you helping organize a conference in the near future? Consider having a Blue Sky Ideas Conference Track!  The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) sponsors an initiative to bring special “Blue Sky Ideas” tracks to leading computer science research conferences. The goal of this initiative is to help conferences reach out beyond the usual research papers that present completed work and to seek out papers that present ideas and visions that can stimulate the research community to pursue new directions. Conferences may request CCC sponsorship of such tracks along with a CCC grant that provides prize money for the top 3 papers (first prize $1000, second prize $750, and third prize $500), to be awarded […]

Blue Sky Ideas Track Held at SSTD 2017

September 7th, 2017 / in Announcements, CCC, research horizons / by Helen Wright

The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) recently sponsored a Blue Sky Ideas Conference Track at the 15th International Symposium on Spatial & Temporal Databases (SSTD), August  21-23, 2017 in Arlington, VA. The purpose of this conference was to discuss new and exciting research in spatial, temporal and spatio-temporal data management and related technologies with the goal to set future research directions. The goal of this track was to provide stimulating ideas or visions that may open up exciting avenues and/or influence the direction of research within the realm of SSTD, i.e., research in spatial, temporal and spatio-temporal data management.

Great Innovative Idea- Pneumatic Actuated Soft Micromold (PASMO) Device

August 23rd, 2017 / in Announcements, CCC, Great Innovative Idea / by Helen Wright

The following Great Innovative Idea is from Po-Jung Huang and Jun Kameoka. Their paper called Pneumatic Actuated Soft Micromold (PASMO) device for Creating 3D Collagen Microparticles was one of the featured talks at the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) sponsored Material Robotics (MaRo) Workshop at the 2017 Robotics Science and Systems (RSS) Conference. The Idea Three-dimensional cell culture is the method that can simply the process for in vivo test. Unlike two-dimensional cell culture, three-dimensional cell culture provides sufficient information, like cell-cell communication and cell-matrix interaction to simulate real human tissue. Pneumatic actuated soft micromold (PASMO) provides a method to generate collagen based three-dimensional microenvironment for simulating progression of tumor and extending to cancer model. PASMO device is integrated […]
