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 Workshop Report on Grand Challenges in Edge Computing

February 21st, 2017 / in Announcements, NSF, research horizons, Research News, workshop reports / by Helen Wright

The following is a guest blog post by Weisong Shi, a Charles H. Gershenson Distinguished Faculty Fellow and a Professor of Computer Science at Wayne State University. The organizing committee for the National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsored Grand Challenges in Edge Computing has released their workshop report. The workshop, held in October 26, 2016, brought together experts from academia, government, and industry to assess the vision, recent trends, state-of-the-art research, and impending challenges of the edge computing. the objectives of the workshop include: Foster the edge computing community; Set the vision and identify grand challenges and open problems; Identify collaboration mechanisms among academia, industry and government. This report serves as […]

Arch2030: A Vision of Computer Architecture Research over the Next 15 Years

December 12th, 2016 / in Announcements, CCC, conference reports, Research News / by Helen Wright

The following blog post is by CCC Vice Chair and Executive Council member and University of Wisconsin-Madison Professor Mark D. Hill and co-author of the report. In June 2016, I blogged about the successful Architecture 2030 Visioning Workshop, organized by Luis Ceze of the University of Washington and Thomas Wenisch of the University of Michigan, and partially sponsored by the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) in conjunction with ISCA’16 in Seoul, South Korea. Recently CCC released the final report Arch2030: A Vision of Computer Architecture Research over the Next 15 Years with the endorsement of more forty research leaders in the field. Key findings are below. Progress on these is necessary to provide the cost-performance improvements that information technology creators and beneficiaries have come to depend […]

Computer-Aided Personalized Education Report

May 23rd, 2016 / in conference reports / by Khari Douglas

The organizing committee for the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) sponsored Computer-Aided Personalized Education has released their workshop report. The workshop, held in November 2015, brought together over 50 researchers in the fields of education, computer science, human-computer interaction, and cognitive psychology to address the challenges and future directions of computing-based educational tools. This growing agenda in computing research includes formalizing tasks such as assessment and feedback as computational problems, developing algorithmic tools to solve resulting problems at scale, and incorporating these tools effectively in learning environments. The report examines emerging trends, such as logical reasoning, machine learning, student-computer interaction, and learning science in order to come up with a research […]

Theoretical Foundations for Social Computing Workshop Report

March 4th, 2016 / in Announcements, Research News, resources, workshop reports / by Helen Wright

Contributions to this post were made by Jenn Wortman Vaughan, a senior researcher at Microsoft Research and a member of the workshop’s organizing committee.   The organizing committee for the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) sponsored Theoretical Foundations for Social Computing Workshop have released their workshop report. Social computing encompasses the mechanisms through which people interact with computational systems. It has blossomed into a rich research area of its own, with contributions from diverse disciplines including computer science, economics, and other social sciences. Yet a broad mathematical foundation for social computing is yet to be established, with a plethora of under-explored opportunities for mathematical research to impact social computing. This workshop, held in June 2015, brought together roughly […]
