- Overview: Government Reports
The goal of the CRA Grand Research Challenges conferences is to encourage thinking beyond incremental improvements. Some important problems simply cannot be solved by narrow investigation aimed at short-term payoffs. Multiple approaches, carried out over a long period of time, will be required. The community is, in effect, looking for big advances that require vision and cannot be achieved by small evolutionary steps. The February 2005 report by the President’s Information Technology Advisory Committee (PITAC) supported a long-term view of research by agencies such as DARPA and NSA, arguing that the trends “favoring short-term research over long-term research. . . should concern policymakers because they threaten to constrict the pipeline of fundamental cyber security research that. . .is vital to securing the Nation’s IT infrastructure.”
