Industry Collaboration Working Group
Chairs: Greg Morrisett and Ben Zorn
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.
Resources related to this working group include:
- The Future of Computing Research: Industry-Academia Collaborations white paper – This paper presents some of the current challenges to industry-academic collaboration and offers some best practice to overcome those challenges.
- Challenges to Keeping the Computer Industry Centered in the US white paper (DRAFT) – This draft paper analyzes the risk that the center of the computing industry – currently focused in Silicon Valley – will move outside of the United States and steps the government should take to prevent that.
