Nominations for Council Members
Thursday, October 27, 2011
The Computing Community Consortium has issued a call for nominations to serve on the CCC Council for three years beginning January 2012. Nominations (including self-nominations) for the CCC Council are invited. The deadline is November 15, 2011.
The CCC empowers the US computing research community to identify major research opportunities for the field and create venues for community participation in the process.
CCC answers forward-looking questions like "What are the next big computing ideas?" and "What attracts the best and brightest minds of a new generation?" A recent example is the CCC-funded robotics project involving more than 100 robotics experts. Their report was the basis of a $70 million investment for the National Robotics Initiative announced in June 2011.The CCC Council, led by chair Ed Lazowska (University of Washington) and vice chair Susan Graham (University of California-Berkeley), carries out the CCC's responsibilities.
