This from the CRA’s Policy Blog looks potentially important:
Under an agreement with the National Science Foundation, the Computing Research Association (CRA) has established the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) to engage the computing research community in articulating and pursuing longer-term research visions – visions that will capture the imagination of our community and of the public at large.
The CCC invites your engagement in this process! At the Federated Computing Research Conference in San Diego during the second week in June, five special talks will sketch the possibilities. These talks are intended to be inspirational, motivational, and accessible. Please join us!
Starts June 11, so still time to book your travel. More info here.
