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.

New NSF Program Solicitation on Cyberlearning for Work at the Human-Technology Frontier

September 28th, 2017 / in Announcements, NSF, Research News / by Khari Douglas

The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently released a new program solicitation on Cyberlearning for Work at the Human-Technology Frontier. The goal of the program is to support research of learning technologies for both educational and work settings. Proposals should utilize current knowledge about how people learn and emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence or virtual reality in order to facilitate lifelong learning. This cross-cutting program is connected with the NSF Directorates for Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE); Education & Human Resources (EHR); Engineering (ENG); and Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE). A portion of the program description reads as follows. This program solicits projects that are exploratory and experimental in nature. These […]

NSF Dear Colleague Letter: Change Makers

July 14th, 2016 / in Announcements, NSF / by Khari Douglas

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has issued the following Dear Colleague Letter calling for proposals that will advance STEM learning and explore solutions to global challenges. Dear Colleague: The National Science Foundation (NSF) is the place where science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) discoveries and discoverers begin. Nationally and internationally, cities and communities face deeply interlocking physical, social, behavioral, economic, and infrastructural challenges. For example, we face complex challenges in providing sufficient food, clean water, and energy for all, while sustaining a healthy environment. Solutions will require ingenuity and expertise from across all domains, including the sciences. Learners can be Change Makers, identifying and working to solve problems that matter […]
