The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) has released a white paper titled “Evolving Methods for Evaluating and Disseminating Computing Research.” This white paper was written by Future of the Research Enterprise (FRE) task force members Ben Zorn (Microsoft Research), Tom Conte (Georgia Tech), Keith Marzullo (University of Maryland), and Suresh Venkatasubramanian (University of Utah). 

The FRE task force was assembled in 2019 to study the evolution of the computing research ecosystem, including topics such as the impact of academia-industry relations, the peer review process, and the future of open source projects. Based on interviews with members of the computing research community, the task force wrote the Evolving Methods for Evaluating and Disseminating Computing Research white paper, which presents the trends the task force observed, discusses the impacts of changing review and dissemination processes, and suggests methods to reduce the negative impacts of these trends.
