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.

NSF Awards Early Career Researchers

April 13th, 2017 / in awards, NSF, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Engineering Directorate‘s Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) program has awarded 156 early career engineering faculty with at least $500,000 for their plan to make advances in engineering. The CAREER program, which extends across all of the agency’s science and engineering directorates, allows promising junior faculty to pursue outstanding research and excellence in education while integrating both. Awardees have the flexibility to explore unexpected new terrain uncovered in the course of their research. A number of these CAREER winners have ties to computer science: CAREER: Integrated Research and Education on Delta-Sigma Based Digital Signal Processing Circuits for Low-Power Intelligent Sensors Principal Investigator: Wei Tang, New Mexico State University From […]

NSF CAREER Awards Given To Two CS Education Researchers

March 27th, 2015 / in Announcements, awards, NSF / by Helen Wright

The following is a guest blog post by Ran Libeskind-Hadas, R. Michael Shanahan Professor and Computer Science Department Chair at Harvey Mudd College.  This year, the National Science Foundation (NSF) Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate (CISE) CISE made its first CAREER awards for research in computer science education.  The awardees are  Kristy Boyer, Assistant Professor of Computer Science at North Carolina State University, and Ben Shapiro, Assistant Professor of Engineering Education at Tufts University. Dr. Boyer’s work explores collaborative learning among computer science undergraduates.  Students collaborate through a system that supports text-based natural language dialog, synchronized code ending, and shared repository control.  Her research   uses techniques in machine learning to analyze […]

NSF CISE CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop

January 28th, 2015 / in NSF, resources / by Helen Wright

The following is a guest blog post by Thyagarajan Nandagopal, National Science Foundation (NSF) Program Director for Computer and Network Systems (CNS).  The NSF Directorate for Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE) will host a one-day workshop on CAREER Proposal Writing on March 16, 2015. This workshop will be held at the Arlington Hilton. The goal of this workshop is to introduce junior CAREER-eligible faculty to the NSF CAREER program and help them to prepare their CAREER proposals to target CISE programs. Attendees will have the opportunity to improve their skills in proposal writing, as well as to interact with NSF program directors from different CISE divisions (ACI, CCF, CNS, and […]
