The Computing Research Association's Computing Community Consortium (CCC) recently issued a call for proposals for workshops that will create exciting visions and agendas for research at the frontiers of computing.

"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," according to the solicitation.

Past visioning activities funded by the CCC include Online Education, Health IT, Spatial Computing, and Disaster Management.

The solicitation notes that many of the past visioning activities have had a significant impact on the national research agenda.

"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," the solicitation says.

Budgets for the proposals can range from $10,000 to $200,000, and the proposals should be submitted by Dec. 1, 2013, with start dates no later than September 2014.
