ACM Chapters

Chapters are the "local neighborhoods" of ACM. Professional and Student chapters worldwide serve as nodes of activity for ACM members and the computing community at large, offering seminars, lectures, and the opportunity to meet peers and experts in many fields of interest.

ACM: Formed at the Dawn of Computing

ACM was established in 1947 soon after the creation of ENIAC, the first stored-program digital computer, to “advance the science, development, construction, and application of the new machinery for computing, reasoning, and other handling of information.”

ACM Eugene L. Lawler Award for Humanitarian Contributions within Computer Science and Informatics

This award is to recognize an individual or a group who have made a significant contribution through the use of computing technology. It will be given once every two years, assuming that there are worthy recipients. The award amount is $5,000 plus travel expenses to the Awards banquet.

The award is intentionally defined broadly. The professional credentials of the recipient(s) are not important. The recipient(s) need never to have earned a degree or published a paper, or even be considered to be a computer professional. The emphasis of the Award Committee will be on the significance of the contribution itself, within the prescribed areas of technology for humanitarian contributions in the field of computing.

Some examples of the types of contributions that this award is created to recognize are: application of computer technology to aid the disabled; making an educational contribution using computers or Computer Science in inner city schools; creative research concerning intellectual property issues; expansion of educational opportunities in Computer Science for women and underrepresented minorities; application of computers or computing techniques to problems of developing countries.
