Ongoing CCC Activities

In the chart below you can check the status of ongoing white papers, reports, and workshops.

Title Status
AI Working Group The Artificial Intelligence Working Group will lead the CCC’s effort to generate an AI Roadmap. Lead by Yolanda Gil (University of Southern California and President-Elect of AAAI) and Bart Selman (Cornell University), this new effort is in support of the Administrations’ efforts in this area, and will bring together academic and industrial researchers and federal agency representatives to help chart a course for needed research in AI, through a series of workshops in the Fall of 2018, resulting in a Roadmap to be produced in the Spring of 2019. The first workshop on Integrated Intelligence will take place November 14-15, 2018 in Chicago.
Industry Working Group The Industry Collaboration Working Group will lead the CCC’s effort to find and communicate best practices to industry-academia and public-private partnerships. Informed by the CCC’s 2015 The Future of Computing Research: Industry-Academia Collaborations this working group will establish ties with industry and lead the creation of white papers, workshops, and other content for future collaborations. The focus of the working group for 2018-2019 will be transportation, particularly autonomous vehicles and the requisite intelligent infrastructure.
Content Generation for Workforce Training (CGWT) The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) will hold a visioning workshop in Atlanta, GA in mid March 2019 to discuss and articulate research visions for authoring rich media content for new workforce training. The workshop aims to articulate research challenges and needs and to summarize the current state of the practice in this area. This workshop is in response to growing needs in the field and new research programs such as the National Science Foundation (NSF) Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier: Advancing Cognitive and Physical Capabilities (FW-HTF). The CCC has released a call for white papers in preparation for this workshop and you can learn more on the workshop website.
Leadership in Embedded Security Workshop The Cybersecurity Taskforce of the CCC held a leadership workshop to envision the future of embedded security research and education from hardware to cyberphysical systems to human factors, co-located with the 27th USENIX Security Symposium. A workshop report is in progress.
Early Career Researcher Symposium As a capstone event for the CIFellows program, the CCC held a workshop August 1-2, that brought together former CIFellows, Postdoctoral Students, and Early Career Researchers in computing to provide them advice at this juncture of their career, enable them to network with other people at similar stages of their career, and discuss emergent research visions and topics with luminaries in the field. Videos from the workshop are available – you can watch videos from the main sessions here and from the poster session here.
Next Steps in Quantum Computing: Computer Science’s Role  The Next Steps in Quantum Computing workshop took place in Washington DC, May 22-23, with aims to bridge the gap between quantum computing experts and experts in other fields of computer science. A workshop report is in progress.
Digital Computing Beyond Moore’s Law On May 3-4 in San Francisco, the CCC ran a workshop to discuss and analyze how digital computing paradigms can overcome the limitations of Moore’s Law. A workshop report is in progress.
Robotic Materials Workshop The CCC hosted this April 23-24 workshop to explore materials used in the development of robotic components. A workshop report is in progress.
Sociotechnical Interventions for Health Disparity Reduction: A Research Agenda The CCC co-hosted a workshop on sociotechnical interventions for health disparity reduction with the Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM). It was co-located with SBM Annual Meeting, April 9-10 in New Orleans, Louisiana. A workshop report is in progress.

Fair Representations and Fair Interactive Learning Workshop

The CCC held a workshop on fair interactive learning in Philadelphia, PA on March 18-19, 2018. A workshop report is in progress.

Cyber Social Learning Systems (CSLS)

The next major frontier in research and development is the integration of cyber-physical with complex human and social systems and phenomena at scale. Progress will catalyze the transformation of major existing systems into cyber-social learning systems (CSLS) that continually and rapidly improve in their function and performance in complex, evolving environments.

The CCC convened three workshops in order to develop and validate the propositions that there is a compelling opportunity and need for basic and applied research in cyber-social learning systems.

A workshop report is in progress.
