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.

Help Shape the Future of Data Science!

November 7th, 2017 / in Announcements, policy, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

National Library of Medicine Director Patti Brennan spoke at the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Leadership in Science Policy Institute (LiSPI) this morning and strongly urged computer scientists to respond to this Request for Information (RFI) to Help Shape the Future of Data Science!  The deadline has been extended to November 20th, 2017! On behalf of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Library of Medicine (NLM) seeks community input on new data science research initiatives that could address key challenges currently faced by researchers, clinicians, administrators, and others, in all areas of biomedical, social/behavioral and health-related research. The field of data science is broad in scope, encompassing approaches for […]

Check out the following updates from Data Science at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Data Science Opportunities: The NIH is looking for mentors for the Friday Afternoon Data Science Mentorship Program (FAM). The mentorship program was created to address the increased interest in one-on-one instruction in data science needed for biomedical research. Sign up to be a mentor: https://goo.gl/forms/DECl87E3oYsuEXcj2. Sign up to be a learner: https://goo.gl/forms/Q6kyNqNp8NCk5FPX2. For more information: https://goo.gl/forms/bRQGMTpNTRUCfe0n2 The Center for Open Science is giving away $1,000 to 1,000 researchers who pre-register their research before they publish. This opportunity is available to projects that are entering the data collection phase. Learn more here. The BD2K Training Coordinating Center has been creating and populating the […]

New NIH Data Commons Pilot Phase

June 19th, 2017 / in Announcements, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

The National Institute of Health (NIH), under the Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) program, will be launching a Data Commons Pilot Phase to test ways to store, access, and share FAIR biomedical data and associated tools in the cloud. A data commons is a way to share and provide access to digital objects, like the data generated during biomedical research, or the software and other tools needed to use the data. A commons would help NIH extract more value from the digital products of biomedical research by making them available to more researchers. Using a cloud-based data commons model will empower researchers to find and interact with data directly in the […]
