Welcome to CRCS
Harvard's Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS) brings computer scientists together with a broad range of scholars from other fields to develop new computer science theory and technology in the public interest, informed by a deep knowledge of the societal issues at stake. Areas of study include healthcare informatics, electronic markets, privacy, security, and social computing.
Since Fall 2009, CRCS has joined forces with Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society. In particular, we have integrated our fellowship programs and coordinated our respective seminars to foster collaboration. CRCS hosts a biweekly seminar for both communities from 11:30am – 1:00pm on Mondays in Maxwell Dworkin, Room 119. CRCS fellows, faculty and friends are also encouraged to participate in the weekly Berkman lunches, held each Tuesday from 12:30 – 2pm.
Since Fall 2012, CRCS faculty member Salil Vadhan has been leading the Privacy Tools for Sharing Research Data project, a multi-school, cross-departmental effort supported by the National Science Foundation’s Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) program.
