ACM, the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, delivers resources that advance computing as a science and a profession. ACM provides the computing field's premier Digital Library and serves its members and the computing profession with leading-edge publications, conferences, and career resources.
ACM is developing a new website to better serve members and the broader computing community.
Please take a few minutes to preview the new website at preview.acm.org. Email us at email@example.com to give us feedback.

ACM has named Bobby Schnabel executive director and CEO
effective November 1, 2015. Schnabel joins ACM after eight years as professor
and dean of the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University. As
CEO, he will work with ACM's volunteer community to provide strategic vision and
to develop sustainable business models to ensure ACM's continued worldwide
membership, publications and revenue growth.
"I am extremely excited to have Bobby take up the
CEO role at ACM," said ACM President Alexander L. Wolf. "Bobby has a
special passion and bright new ideas that will help continue the great
tradition of leadership, innovation, openness and growth that has marked the
history of ACM."
Schnabel has a long history of service to the computing
community, and has served in several capacities, including chair, of ACM
SIGNUM. When Schnabel assumes his role as CEO, he will step down as founding
chair of the ACM Education Policy Committee.
Dedicated to improving diversity in computing, Schnabel
is a co-founder and executive team member of the National Center for Women
& Information Technology (NCWIT). He also serves as chair of the Computing
Alliance for Hispanic-Serving Institutions Advisory Board.
Schnabel succeeds John R. White, ACM's first executive
director to be named CEO, who retired after nearly 17 years on July 31. ACM
COO Patricia Ryan is serving as acting executive director until Schnabel
assumes his new role in November.

ACM and CSTA, the Computer Science Teachers Association, have announced a new award, the ACM/CSTA Cutler-Bell Prize in High School Computing, to recognize talented high school students in computer science. The program seeks to promote and encourage the field of computer science, as well as to empower
young and aspiring learners to pursue computing challenges outside of the traditional classroom environment.
Four winners will be selected annually and each will be awarded a $10,000 prize and cost of travel to the annual ACM/CSTA Cutler-Bell Prize in High School Computing Reception where students will demonstrate their programs and discuss their work. The prizes will be funded by a $1 million endowment established by David Cutler and Gordon Bell.
The application period for the inaugural award is now open; deadline is January 1, 2016. The inaugural awards will be announced in February 2016.
