Joseph Evans, the Deane E. Ackers Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, has been appointed to a three-year term the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Council.
"I am extremely honored by this appointment. The work of the CCC is critical to the future of computing research," said Evans.
The CCC includes 18 leaders of the computing research community from industry, government and academia. The council directs and oversees the operations of the CCC, which provides scientific leadership and vision to computing research and future large-scale computing research projects. It helps identify major research opportunities and establish grand challenges for the computing field. It also creates venues for community participation in developing a vision for computing research and in launching new research activities.
His ITTC research includes cognitive wireless networking, networked information systems architecture, and adaptive systems.
Evans has served as director of the Information and Telecommunication Technology Center (ITTC) and as director of Research Information Technology at KU, and as a program director at the National Science Foundation. He has been a researcher at the Cambridge University Computer Laboratory, Olivetti & Oracle Research Laboratory, USAF Rome Laboratories, and AT&T Bell Laboratories. He has co-founded several companies, including a network gaming company acquired by Microsoft in 2000 that formed the foundation for Xbox Live, and a defense-oriented venture acquired by General Dynamics in 2010 which developed TIGR, a tactical information system used worldwide by the US Army.
