Chris Ramming, Senior Director for Research and Innovation at VMWare, will be a speaker at the Symposium on the Future of Computing Research held by the University of Southern California’s Information Sciences Institute on September 12-13, 2022. Ramming is a member of both the CRA Board of Directors and the Computing Research Association-Industry (CRA-I) Steering Committee. His talk will discuss how to plan collaborative research between universities and companies and how researchers should tackle twenty-first century problems. In the “Identifying and Evangelizing Emerging Technical Directions” session, Ramming will be a speaker alongside Elizabeth Bradley (University of Colorado) and Beth Mynatt (Northeastern University), who are both former members of the CRA Board and past chairs of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC). Other speakers at the symposium with CRA connections are: Eric Horvitz (former CCC Council Member), Jim Kurose (former CRA Board Member), Leysia Palen (CCC Contributor), Daniel Reed (former CRA Board Chair), and Moshe Vardi (former CRA Board Member).
