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.

CISE Research Initiation Initiative (CRII) Webinar

July 13th, 2015 / in Announcements, NSF, Research News / by Helen Wright

The Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Research Initiation Initiative (CRII) program is for research and teaching faculty in the first two years of their appointments. In 2014-15, the first year of the program, there were 76 awards under this program.Two of the projects that were funded last year are highlighted below. The interaction between computer processors and software is governed by an Instruction Set Architecture (ISA). The ISA is large and complex, too large for a person to understand and reason about all the interactions between different parts completely. [My] research is about detecting security vulnerabilities that exist in the ISA. The hypothesis of this research is that it […]
