CRA Conference at Snowbird & IT Deans Meeting

Snowbird, UT
CRA LogoCRA Conference at Snowbird 2008

The flagship conference for academic and research laboratory administrators interested in computing research issues.

The biennial CRA Conference at Snowbird is an invitation-only meeting for chairs of Ph.D.-granting departments of computer science and computer engineering, as well as leaders from U.S. industrial and government computing research laboratories. A number of other senior people from research groups, government, academia, and professional societies also attend by invitation. It is a relatively small (250 people) but very influential group. The goal of the conference is to provide a context in which attendees can discuss practical and strategic issues facing their organizations. This opportunity to network with peers is one of the most valuable aspects of the conference.
