The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

The Computing Research Association (CRA) is planning an Accessible Technology for All workshop co-hosted by CRA-Industry (CRA-I), Computing Community Consortium (CCC), and CRA-Widening Participation (CRA-WP) on February 22-23, 2023 in Washington, DC. This workshop is one of the activities CRA is currently pursuing under the umbrella of Socially Responsible Computing, one of the topics identified in the recent CRA Strategic Planning Effort.
The purpose of this workshop is to convene academic, industry, and government representatives to vision ways to make all technology accessible and why that is important and necessary for society as a whole. Technology should simplify everyone’s lives, rather than add unforeseen complications. Ensuring socially responsible intentions and practices is critical to realizing the future potential of computing research. This workshop should help establish partnerships and increase communication across all groups to achieve this goal. Presentations and discussions from this workshop will be put together into a report for the community.
If you are interested in learning more about this workshop or other activities, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. This workshop will be in-person only with no hybrid option. Individual invitations will be sent out to community members before the end of the year.
