Chapter Website Hosting

Chapter officers are now able to set up their chapter web site on the ACM servers and publicize it through the URL http://your_chapter_name.acm.org. To take advantage of this service, Chapter officers should complete this form.

The chapter server account will allow officers to load files through SFTP (Secure FTP over SSH) to set up and maintain their chapter web pages. Technologies available to Chapters include PHP, MySQL, Tomcat, and Perl. ACM will consider loading any open source software that chapters may need to develop and maintain their web pages. Chapter officers should submit their requests to the ACM IS Department.

WIKI and Blogs

ACM offers two Wiki engines:  MediaWiki, the software of Wikipedia, and MoinMoin, an advanced, easy to use, extensible WikiEngine. Chapter officers will be able to start a wiki for their Chapter to carry out activities that require collaborative writing, document sharing, and website management.

ACM also offers the Movabletype publishing platform for Chapter officers and members to use in setting up blogs relevant to their Chapter activities and interests.

To request WIKI/Blog for your chapter, please complete this form.
