Computing and Healthcare: New Opportunities and Directions

The opportunity for innovation is enhanced by the increasing availability of health data, the drop in cost and ubiquity of powerful, networked sensors and computing devices, and the increasing competency of methods and algorithms for analyzing data to provide insights, diagnoses, predictions, and recommendations.

This is part of a series of workshops on Health IT - view the series page.

Spatial Computing Workshop

Spatial Computing is a set of ideas and technologies that will transform our lives by understanding the physical world, knowing and communicating our relation to places in that world, and navigating through those places.

This one-and-a-half-day NSF/CCC sponsored visioning workshop on Spatial Computing outlined an effort to develop and promote a unified agenda for Spatial Computing research and development across US agencies, industries, and universities.

Computing for Disaster Management Workshop

New research in computing technology can advance emergency response and recovery, while also driving forward the computer science and engineering fields.

This one-and-a-half-day National Science Foundation (NSF)/Computing Community Consortium (CCC) co-sponsored visioning workshop on computing for disaster management identified ways in which fundamental computing research in the broadest terms can advance the field of emergency response and recovery.

NITRD Symposium

On February 16, 2012, more than 150 federal officials, Congressional staffers, academic researchers, and industry leaders packed a room overlooking the United States Capitol to mark two decades of coordinated federal investment in networking and information technology research and development. The daylong symposium, titled “The Impact of NITRD: Two Decades of Game-Changing Breakthroughs in Networking and Information Technology—Expanding Possibilities Ahead,” explored progress and prospects in the field.
