CCC at AAAS 2020

The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) has attended and hosted sessions at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Annual Meeting since 2013. Below you can find links to slides and resources from the 2020 sessions and links to related CCC white papers and resources. To learn more about the 2020 AAAS Meeting visit the webpage.

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.

Symposium on Addressing National Priorities and Societal Needs

To raise awareness of the importance of computing research to the nation, and the CCC’s role in fostering that research, the CCC regularly holds a symposium in Washington, DC on Computing Research: Addressing National Priorities and Societal Needs, which also serves as an important medium for informing, inspiring, and engaging early career researchers. Learn about past symposiums below and stay tuned for updates about future symposiums

Wide-Area Data Analytics

Modern datasets are often distributed across many locations. This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners in the database, networking, distributed systems, and storage fields in order to bridge the gap in research within wide-area data analytics.

Misinformation Roundtable

This roundtable will bring together computer scientists along with experts from disciplines potentially to include electrical engineering, psychology, marketing, information science, and political science to discuss challenges in detecting and countering misinformation.

AI Roadmap

In fall 2018, the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) started a new initiative to create a Roadmap for Artificial Intelligence, led by Yolanda Gil (University of Southern California and President-Elect of AAAI) and Bart Selman (Cornell University). A series of three workshops were held in the Fall/Winter of 2018/2019, with the goal of identifying challenges, opportunities, and pitfalls, and create a compelling report that will effectively inform future federal priorities—including future AI R&D Investments. The final report is now available.
Fairness and Accountability Task Force will hold a visioning workshop on Economics and Fairness, May 22-23, 2019 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This workshop will bring together computer science researchers with backgrounds in algorithmic decision making, machine learning, and data science with policy makers, legal experts, economists, and business leaders to discuss methods to ensure economic fairness in a data-driven world.
