CCC Task Forces

The CCC Council is broken up into various task forces depending on the need from the community. Each task force, made up of a select group of council members and community experts, focuses on a specific topic area of computing and IT in order to drive innovation and new research visions in the area through white papers, visioning workshops, the blog, and other community resources. The current task forces are listed below; to view previous CCC task forces, visit this webpage.
