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.

Nominations Sought for New CCC Council Members

December 6th, 2017 / in Announcements, CCC / by Helen Wright

The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is charged with catalyzing and empowering the U.S. computing research community to articulate and advance major research directions for the field. To do so, the CCC needs truly visionary leaders — people with great ideas, sound judgment, and the willingness to work hard to see things to completion. Please help the computing community by nominating such people for the Council. Established in 2006 through a cooperative agreement between the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Computing Research Association (CRA) — representing over 220 North American academic departments, industrial research labs, and professional societies with computing research interests, the CCC provides a voice for the national computing research community, and facilitates the […]

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 […]

Call for Proposals: Creating Visions for Computing Research

The mission of Computing Research Association’s (CRA) Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community and enable the pursuit of innovative, high-impact research. CCC conducts activities that strengthen the research community, articulate compelling research visions, and align those visions with pressing national and global challenges. CCC communicates the importance of those visions to policymakers, government and industry stakeholders, the public, and the research community itself. In accordance with the mission, CCC is issuing a new call for proposals for workshops that will catalyze and enable innovative research at the frontiers of computing. From the solicitation: Successful activities will articulate new research visions, galvanize community interest in those visions, mobilize support for those visions from the […]

CCC @ AAAS 2017- The Technology of the Future

March 16th, 2017 / in CCC, research horizons, Research News, robotics / by Helen Wright

Contributions to this post were provided by Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Council members Maja Matarić and Shwetak Patel.   Recently, we have been highlighting CCC’s role at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Advance of Science (AAAS) and have posted blogs about Health in Your Pocket: Diagnosing and Treating Disease with Smartphones and What Happens When Everyday Objects Become Internet Devices: A Science Policy Agenda. The focus of this post is on the Technology of the Future flash talks that CCC Council members Maja Matarić and Shwetak Patel presented. In Matarić’s Socially Assistive Robotics: Creating Robots That (Provide) Care talk, she described work in the new field of socially assistive robotics, […]
