The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.
The The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) recently sponsored a Blue Sky Ideas Conference Track at the 30th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems. The conference was held in Seattle, Washington on on November 1st-4th, 2022.
