The future of network research, computing science and eScience

[Some very compelling and highly recommended presentations on computing science and network research. From a posting on Dave Farber's IPer list -- BSA]

As you've previously posted on IP, the Computing Community Consortium was established by NSF (under a cooperative agreement with the Computing Research Association) to engage the computing research community in formulating and articulating some longer-range and more compelling visions for the field.

At this week's Federated Computing Research Conference, there were six CCC-related talks. Slides are online and might be of interest to IP-ers.

The talks were:

Ed Lazowska, "Introducing the Computing Community Consortium"

Christos Papadimitriou, "The Algorithmic Lens: How the Computatational Perspective is Transforming the Sciences"

Bob Colwell, "Computer Architecture Futures 2007"

Randal Bryant, "Data-Intensive Super Computing: Taking Google-Style Computing Beyond Web Search"

Scott Shenker, "We Dream of GENI: Exploring Radical Network Designs"

Ed Lazowska, "Computer Science: Past, Present, and Future" (FCRC closing keynote)
