As a CCC Council Member, I am forwarding CCC blog post by staffer Ann Drobnis:

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.
