Project Title:

Continuing Innovation in Information Technology: A Workshop
PIN: DEPS-CSTB-13-02        

Major Unit:

Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences

Sub Unit: Computer Science & Telecommuncations Board DEPS

RSO: Eisenberg, Jon

Subject/Focus Area: Computers and Information Technology; Policy for Science and Technology

Project Scope
An ad hoc committee will plan and conduct a public workshop that would highlight additional examples of the impacts of computing research using the framework established in the “tiretracks” figure published in CSTB's 2012 report Continuing Innovation in Information Technology and explore further uses of the figure and framework.  The committee will develop the agenda for the workshop, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions. Invited technical leaders and researchers (primarily from industry) would use the framework to make presentations describing how academic and industry research has underpinned innovation in information technology with significant economic or other societal impact. Workshop participants would engage in discussions that build on these presentations to consider how the framework can be used to collect, display, and analyze what is known about the interplay between academic and industry research; the multi-directional flows of ideas, technologies, and people; and the impacts of research. A summary report will be prepared of the presentations and discussions at the workshop and would contain the examples presented by speakers (appended as signed papers).

The sponsor of the project is the National Science Foundation
The approximate start date of the project is November 1, 2013.
The approximate end date of the project is April 30, 2015.
The project is expected to last 12 months.

Project Duration: 12 months
