Computing Researchers, with Representation from SCI, Fly-in to D.C. to Make the Case for Computing
On September 11, 21 computing researchers from across the country visited Washington, D.C. to make the case for federally funded computing research. The volunteers, traveling from as near as Virginia and Maryland, and as far away as Wyoming and Montana, participated in over 50 House and Senate meetings. Their message to Congress was very simple: Federally supported computing research is vital to the nation’s future. Using their own research and individual stories as support, and reinforced with additional information from CRA, they made the “Federal case” for computing to Members of Congress and their staff. Associate Dean for Academic Programs and Associate Professor for the Department of Computer Science Adam Lee was among the 21 researchers.
