[A CCC visioning workshop in 2008 led to the TCS vision nuggets hosted here. It would be great to have another TCS-oriented visioning workshop, perhaps focused on a particular direction in the field.]
From the CCC website:
The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) solicits proposals for workshops that will create exciting visions and agendas for research at the frontiers of computing. Successful workshops will articulate new research visions, galvanize community interest in those visions, and mobilize support for those visions from the computing research community, government leaders, and funding agencies. Past examples can be found at www.cra.org/ccc/visioning/visioning-activities.
Workshop organizers will be expected to bring together a group of scientists and practitioners in the area of interest, and to formulate a program that encourages new ideas, innovative thinking, and broad discussion. Workshops can be of varying sizes, typically ranging from 20 to 100 participants. CCC will help to support both workshop organization and subsequent communication of the results. The output of a successful workshop will be one or more white papers and reports for the CCC to post on its website. The CCC will work with the workshop organizers to communicate to other stakeholders and funding agencies.
Proposals are encouraged across the full spectrum of theoretical and applied work related to the creation and application of information technologies as well as their use in addressing important scientific or societal challenges.
Proposals with start dates prior to September 2014 should be submitted by 1 December 2013.
