This report is the result of a series of workshops organized to explore where we are in the application of pervasive computing power to education, and where we need to be. In particular, the intent was to develop a map of where NSF can strategically place its resources in creating the learning environments of the future.

The result of a workshop held November 16-19, 2003. In 2002, CRA sponsored its first "Grand Research Challenges in Computer Science and Engineering." This was the first in a series of highly non-traditional conferences where the goal is to define important questions rather than expose current research. Grand Challenges meetings seek "out-of-the-box" thinking to expose some of the exciting, deep challenges yet to be met in computing research. Because of the clear importance and pressing needs in information security and assurance, CRA's second "Grand Research Challenges Conference" was devoted to defining technical and social challenges in information security and assurance.

This is the final report from CRA Conference on "Grand Research Challenges" in Computer Science and Engineering held on June 23-26, 2002 at Warrenton, Virginia. The purpose of the conference was to provoke "out-of-the-box" thinking. Because the scope of computer science and engineering is broad, the organizing committee selected systems as an overall theme for the focus of the first conference. The conference was a prototype for a series of conferences on grand research challenges.
