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.

Great Innovative Idea- Wide-Field Ethnography: Studying Software Engineering in 2025 and Beyond

July 11th, 2016 / in Great Innovative Idea / by Helen Wright

The following Great Innovative Idea is from David Socha from the University of Washington Bothell. Socha and his colleagues, Robin Adams (Purdue University), Kelly Franznick (Blink UX), Wolff-Michael Roth (University of Victoria), Kevin Sullivan (University of Virginia), Josh Tenenberg (University of Washington Tacoma), and Skip Walter (Factor, Inc.), published a paper called Wide-Field Ethnography: Studying Software Engineering in 2025 and Beyond, which was the first place winner at the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) sponsored Blue Sky Ideas Track Competition at the 38th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE), May 14-22, 2016 in Austin, TX. The Innovative Idea Wide-field ethnography (WFE) refers to an approach of gathering and collaboratively analyzing large, multi-modal, multi-stream datasets of physical-social-economic-cyber systems (PSECs) in action. While our paper framed the WFE vision around physical-cyber-social systems (PCSSs), our […]
