Whether it be scholarships, career panels, contests, paper or poster contests... We have so much to offer! Return soon and often, because we will continue to add to this list!

The ACM Special Interest Groups (SIGS) offer a wide variety of scholarships, awards, volunteering, and contest opportunities for you to participate in. To benefit from these opportunities, you must be a member of the particular SIG offering the opportunity.

SIGPLAN (Programming Languages): SIGPLAN sponsors or co-sponsors a half-dozen conferences and workshops each year. Volunteers are needed to help with publicity, registration, and local arrangements.

SIGPLAN publishes 3 newsletters: SIGPLAN Notices, Fortran Forum, and OOPS Messenger. We are looking for colleagues to write regular articles (e.g., conference calendars,lists of new books/software, summaries of newsgroup discussions) and help with the many tasks of being an associate editor (including searching out those articles that our members want to read).

At the SIG organization level, we need members to serve as liaisons to the various standards and publications activities in ACM, as well as focusing on expanding membership and member participation. The key requirements are technical expertise and a willingness and ability to devote time to the Programming Languages community.

Students wishing to volunteer for the OOPSLA conference can review the call for participation for details, or send email to
