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 DCL Pursuing Meaningful Actions in Support of Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC)

July 18th, 2017 / in Announcements, NSF, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

National Science Foundation (NSF) Assistant Director for the Directorate of Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE) James Kurose has issued the following letter to the community for pursuing meaningful actions in support of Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC). Dear Colleague: The National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) is committed to broadening the participation of underrepresented populations in computing and closely-related disciplines. Indeed, CISE supports meaningful actions that address the longstanding underrepresentation of various populations including women, minorities (African Americans/Blacks, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Native Pacific Islanders, and persons from economically disadvantaged backgrounds), and persons with disabilities, in the computing field. With this Dear […]

NSF Dear Colleague Letter: Request for Input on Federal Datasets with Potential to Advance Data Science

February 7th, 2017 / in Announcements, NSF / by Helen Wright

National Science Foundation (NSF) Assistant Director for the Directorate of Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE) James Kurose has issued the following letter to the community to request input on federal datasets with potential to advance data science.  Dear Colleague: Through this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL), the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) requests input on possible datasets held by federal departments, agencies, and offices that would be useful in furthering research in data science, including machine learning. Over the past few years, Project Open Data (https://project-open-data.cio.gov/) has sought to identify and share best practices, examples, and software code to assist federal agencies with […]

National Science Foundation (NSF) Assistant Director for the Directorate of Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE) James Kurose has issued the following letter to the community to announce NSF’s  and CISE ‘s role in the new Advanced Wireless Research Initiative.  Dear Colleagues, I am pleased to let you know about NSF’s and CISE’s leadership role in a new White House Initiative being announced today (see http://go.wh.gov/M838be)  — the Advanced Wireless Research Initiative, which will feature more than $400 million over the next seven years to support fundamental wireless research and experimentation.  The centerpiece of this investment will be more than $85 million for the design, development, deployment, and operations of four city-scale platforms for advanced wireless […]

NSF DCL: Exploring Mechanisms to Enhance the Economic and Societal Impacts of Fundamental Advances in Information and Communications Technologies

July 5th, 2016 / in Announcements, NSF, policy, research horizons / by Helen Wright

The following is a Dear Colleague Letter from the National Science Foundation (NSF).  July 1, 2016 Dear Colleague, Advances in information and communications technologies (ICT) are addressing a wide range of economic and societal challenges. For example, researchers are investigating how advances in learning science and technology can help close the educational achievement gap between children in different income classes and aid non-college-educated workers in gaining new technical skills. Additionally, as the nations technically trained workforce grows, it will need new forms of work including entirely new industries to achieve full employment and social progress. However, identifying effective technology and successfully deploying it broadly remains a challenge. For instance, although individualized […]
