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)
