The ACM Code of Ethics, Draft 2: We Need Your Input
April 25, 2017
Last year, a task force of the ACM Committee on Professional Ethics (COPE) began revising the ACM Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct to reflect the shifts in technology and society since its adoption in 1992. The group has now completed two drafts of suggested updates to The Code, and is inviting your input as they begin to work on the third and final draft.
See the digital edition of the May issue of Communications of the ACM for background on the development of these drafts, which includes an in-depth overview of some of the concerns raised by the computing community during the comment period.
You can help define what it means to be a good computing professional by providing your feedback. To review the drafts and join an online discussion about them, visit code2018.acm.org/discuss.
