Evans Named to Computing Community Consortium


By Michelle Ward

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.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
