CHAPTER 3: PROGRAMMATIC AND INSTITUTIONAL OPPORTUNITIES TO
ENHANCE COMPUTER SCIENCE RESEARCH FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Introduction

No one field or discipline on its own could possibly be expected to
“solve” even one aspect of this problem

There is optimism that CS research has vital global role in effectively
tackling the challenges of Sustainability

A move from resource-intensive to information-intensive society
CS Approaches for addressing
Sustainability

Universality approach against specific or bottom-up approach

Examples of important contributions that began as highly specific
projects include the World Wide Web (originally conceived as a
means to share research papers and scientific information) and
object-oriented programming (early object-oriented languages
were developed to address specific problems such as discrete
event simulation or graphical interaction).
Highlighted opportunities for
making progress in Sustainability

Social media

Design thinking

Tools for the automated design of very large scale system

Search

Science of resilience and adaptive system etc..
Towards Universality

Urgency

Cross discipline

Last Word: Fast-moving iterative, incrementally evolving approaches
to problem solving in computer science, which were critical to
building the Internet and web search engines, will be useful in
solving sustainability challenges.
Education and Programmatics

Multidisciplinary research in higher institution

Provision of funds and incentives for CS research

Indepth metrics and evaluative criteria

Measured impact of CS research
