The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is happy to announce that Liz Bradley from the University of Colorado-Boulder is the new Chair and Dan Lopresti from Lehigh University is the Vice Chair. Mark D. Hill from the University of Wisconsin-Madison is the Chair Emeritus. The CCC Chair and Vice Chair both serve two-year terms; at the culmination of the two years, the Vice Chair typically becomes the new Chair.
The CCC also welcomes seven new council members, nominated by colleagues in the computing research community, who began their three-year terms today:
- Kathleen Fisher, Tufts University
- William D. Gropp, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
- Brian LaMacchia, Microsoft Research
- Melanie Moses, University of New Mexico

The CCC Council is comprised of 20 members who have expertise in diverse areas of computing. They are instrumental in leading CCC’s visioning programs, which help catalyze visions for future computing research. Members serve staggered three-year terms that rotate every July. New members are added every July following an open nomination process conducted by a subcommittee of the CCC with oversight by CRA and NSF. Nominations from the community are encouraged at any time.
