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.

Summit on Advances in Programming Languages 2017 Opportunity for Junior Researchers

February 15th, 2017 / in Announcements, pipeline / by Khari Douglas

Rastislav Bodik (University of Washington) and Shriram Krishnamurthi (Brown University) have announced an exciting, new opportunity for junior researchers – either young faculty or older graduate students – to apply to attend and speak at the Summit on Advances in Programming Languages (SNAPL) 2017. SNAPL is a biennial conference for discussions on innovation in programming languages, from foundations to applications and across industry and academia. SNAPL seeks paper submissions from researchers and practitioners on programming language topics that will generate a good discussion amongst attendees. Bodik and Krishnamurthi plan to bring in less established researchers to generate discussions from different perspectives and provide an opportunity for junior researchers to share their […]

CCC Blue Sky Ideas Conference Tracks

August 23rd, 2016 / in CCC, 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 […]
