Catalyzing Computing

Catalyzing Computing

The mission of Computing Research Association’s Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community and enable the pursuit of innovative, high-impact research. The CCC's official podcast, "Catalyzing Computing," features interviews with researchers and policy makers about their background and experiences in the computing community. The podcast also offers recaps of visioning workshops and other events hosted by the CCC. If you want to learn about some of the computing community's most influential members or keep tabs on the latest areas of interest then this is the podcast for you.
