Grand Research Challenges in Computing

This is not a brand-new topic, but because of the time scale, still quite relevant.

What are the grand research challenges in computing? The Computing Research Association has sponsored two Grand Challenges workshops. The first was Grand Research Challenges in Computer Science and Engineering in 2002. I submitted a position paper, and the workshop produced a summary report. The second was Grand Research Challenges in Information Security & Assurance in 2003. I submitted another position paper, and workshop results are summarized in briefing slides. A third workshop is planned for 2005.

The United Kingdom has a related Grand Challenges project, described here. Its working party produced these criteria for Grand Challenges. Their 2004 workshop is described here.
