Computing Research: Addressing National Priorities and Societal Needs 2017

Over the past 11 years, the Computing Community Consortium has hosted dozens of research visioning workshops to imagine, discuss, and debate the future of computing and its role in addressing societal needs. The second CCC Computing Research symposium draws these topics into a program designed to illuminate current and future trends in computing and the potential for computing to address national challenges.

Leadership in Science Policy Institute

The Computing Research Association’s Computing Community Consortium offers its Leadership in Science Policy Institute to educate computing researchers on how science policy in the U.S. is formulated and how our government works. LiSPI features presentations and discussions with science policy experts, current and former Hill staff, and relevant agency and Administration personnel about mechanics of the legislative process, interacting with agencies, advisory committees, and the federal case for computing.

Sociotechnical Cybersecurity Workshop 2

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) has taken a central role in modern society. Unfortunately, malicious hackers and cybercrime have become a stubborn and expensive part of the ICT landscape. This has made providing cybersecurity a defining challenge for our era. Many strategic plans and National Academies of Sciences (NAS) studies have been written, and billions of dollars have been spent on the development and deployment of innovative cybersecurity solutions, but our network infrastructure, devices and organizations are increasingly insecure against threats.

AAAI Symposium on AI for Social Good

A rise in real-world applications of AI has stimulated significant interest from the public, media, and policy makers, including the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). Along with this increasing attention has come media-fueled concerns about purported negative consequences of AI, which often overlooks the societal benefits that AI is delivering and can deliver in the near future. This symposium will focus on the promise of AI across multiple sectors of society. We seek to bring together AI researchers and researchers/practitioners/experts/policy makers from a wide variety of domains.

Cyber-Social Learning Systems Workshop 3

Over the last decade, we have made enormous progress establishing scientific and engineering principles for cyber-physical systems (CPS). The next major frontier in science and engineering research and development, is the integration of cyber-physical with human and social systems and phenomena at all scales. Closing the loop from sensing to performance at all scales will give rise to cyber-social learning systems. This is part of a workshop series – view the series page.

Symposium on Accelerating Science: A Grand Challenge for AI

The AAAI Fall Symposium on Accelerating Science: A Grand Challenge for AI (co-sponsored by AAAI and the CRA Computing Community Consortium) aims to bring together researchers in relevant areas of artificial intelligence, high performance data and computing infrastructures and services, and selected application areas to discuss progress on, and articulate a research agenda aimed at addressing, the AI grand challenge of accelerating science.
