About the Event
The National Science Foundation created the Computing Community
Consortium to stimulate the computing research community to envision
and pursue longer-range, more audacious research challenges.
Professor Lazowska serves as the Founding Director of the University of Washington eScience Institute, and as the Chair of the Computing Community Consortium. Lazowska received his A.B. from Brown University in 1972 and his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto in 1977, when he joined the University of Washington faculty. Lazowska’s research and teaching concern the design, implementation, and analysis of high performance computing and communication systems, and, more recently, the techniques and technologies of data-intensive science.
