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.

Call for Proposals: Creating Visions for Computing Research

February 13th, 2017 / in Announcements, CCC / by Helen Wright

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 […]

Great Innovative Idea- Flexible Road Trains in Autonomous Public Transportation

February 2nd, 2017 / in CCC, Great Innovative Idea / by Helen Wright

The following Great Innovative Idea is from Stephan Winter from the University of Melbourne. Winter along with his coauthors Niels Agatz from Erasmus University Rotterdam, Ana Bazzan from Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Ronny Kutadinata from the University of Melbourne, Dirk Christian Mattfeld from University of Braunschweig, Monika Sester from Leibniz University Hannover, and Ouri Wolfson from University of Illinois at Chicago were among the winners at the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) sponsored Blue Sky Ideas Track Competition at the ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems 2016 (SIGSPATIAL 2016) in San Francisco, CA. Their winning paper is called Autonomous Public Transportation: Flexible Road Trains. The Innovative Idea The team was fascinated by a […]

Nominations Sought for New CCC Council Members

January 27th, 2017 / in Announcements, CCC / by Helen Wright

Nominations Due in 1 Week! 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 […]

Great Innovative Idea- Weakly Supervised Cyberbullying Detection in Social Media

September 13th, 2016 / in CCC / by Helen Wright

The following Great Innovative Idea is from Bert Huang, Assistant Professor of Computer Science atVirginia Tech. Huang presented his poster, Weakly Supervised Cyberbullying Detection in Social Media, at the CCC Symposium on Computing Research, May 9-10, 2016. The Idea One of my research topics that I’m most passionate about is on developing machine learning algorithms that detect cyberbullying in social media. Cyberbullying is a serious public health threat that is detrimentally shaping the online experience. And while Internet technology is rapidly amplifying our ability to communicate, it’s important to develop complementary technology to help mitigate the harm of such detrimental communication. Computer programs that detect online harassment could allow automatic interventions, […]

Computing Community Consortium Evaluation Survey

September 12th, 2016 / in Announcements, CCC / by Helen Wright

Over the past two years, the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) has organized 19 visioning workshops on a wide range of topics, and also funded a number of other events to help serve the computing research community. Please help us determine the CCC’s current impact on the computing research community by completing this survey. The CCC strives to serve the computing research community, so your feedback is extremely valuable. This survey will take about 5-10 minutes.  Only aggregate responses will be reported; comments may be quoted in our internal evaluation report, but no individually identifiable information will be released. Please feel free to share this survey with others in the community who may have benefited from the CCC.
