Future of Pandemic Prevention and Response

In this workshop, we will discuss and summarize challenges and envision computational opportunities related to forecasting and disease spread; disease evolution; automated notification systems; logistics and supply allocation; interventions and vaccination proof; and genomic medicine to ensure we are more prepared for the next pandemic. We also plan to do a pandemic emergency simulation to help us determine what computational tools exist and are useful, and the gaps that researchers at the intersection of computing and health are in the unique position to fill.

Systems and Applications Challenges for the Emerging Bazaar of Accelerators

The slowing of Moore’s law and the end of Dennard scaling has reduced the dominance of general purpose processor architectures.  Accelerators and other approaches optimized for specific operations and data structures have been developed as the go-to alternative. This CCC workshop will focus on the opportunities, challenges, and questions which arise from this shift.

5 Year Update to the Next Steps in Quantum Computing Workshop

The CCC held the Next Steps in Quantum Computing Workshop in May of 2018. This 5 Year Update workshop aims to address the innovations and technological strides that have taken place since then, and to discuss what research needs to be done in the future.

Community-Driven Approaches to Research in Technology & Society

The focus of this visioning activity is to catalyze the research community by enabling conversations between computing researchers and those that are impacted by artificial intelligence systems. Through active participation, we hope all will better understand the research opportunities that will create improved systems for the users who are impacted by the systems. Participatory research is a growing area in computing, and we also plan to outline how community partners and researchers can effectively and ethically work together to conduct community-driven research.

Building Resilience to Climate Driven Extreme Events with Computing Innovations: A Convergence Accelerator Workshop

Through this workshop we identified computing building blocks needed to facilitate and expedite technological innovation in multiple impact areas. We focused on a subset of the impact areas identified in the CCC white paper on computing research for the climate crisis: Energy, Environmental Justice, Agriculture, and Transportation. 

CIFellows 2022 Workshop

The event will be a workshop involving both the 2020 and 2021 CIFellow cohorts on May 26th in Washington, DC. We will have a variety of speakers, panels and networking opportunities with members of the computing research community.

NITRD 30th Anniversary

On May 25th, 2022 the 30th anniversary celebration of the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) program will be held In-Person at the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC.
