The Computing Research Association has appointed Edward Lazowska, the Bill and Melinda Gates chair in computer science and engineering at the University of Washington, as the inaugural chairman of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Council.
In his new role, Lazowska will lead the CCC -- a consortium of experts drawn from and chosen by the computing research community -- as it seeks to stimulate scientific leadership and vision on issues related to computing research and future large-scale computing research projects.
Lazowska has been co-chairman of the President's Information Technology Advisory Committee and the Defense Advanced Projects Agency Information Science and Technology study group. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Association for Computing Machinery, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
