Conference Proceedings—Rapid Dissemination of Research Findings

ACM conferences are a vital publication venue for computing research, and capture the cutting edge of innovation across the spectrum of computing by publishing refereed and invited papers.

ACM Books—High Quality, Advanced-Level Books for the Computing Community

Published by ACM in conjunction with Morgan & Claypool Publishers, ACM Books is a new series of advanced texts for computer science practitioners, researchers, educators, and students.

Select Application-Oriented Papers

Many papers published in ACM's Journals hold great value to software engineers interested in staying at the top of their field. The papers in this collection were selected for their relevance to practitioners who strive to build the software that will shape the future.

New Journal: ACM Transactions on Social Computing

The new journal ACM Transactions on Social Computing (TSC) will cover theoretical, empirical, systems, and design research aspects of social computing. TSC particularly solicits research that designs, implements or studies systems that mediate social interactions among users, or that develops or studies theory or techniques for application in those systems.

New Options for ACM Authors to Manage Rights and Permissions

Changes expand access to Special Interest Group conference proceedings. ACM offers flexible options that fit computing researchers' individual needs.

Publish with ACM

ACM's prestigious conferences and journals are seeking top-quality papers in all areas of computing and IT. It is now easier than ever to find the most appropriate venue for your research and publish with ACM.

ACM Task Force Addresses Reproducibility in Published Work

A number of ACM communities have independently evolved their own “artifact” review processes and associated definitions of what it means to be reproducible. These communities have come together in this Task Force to collaborate on a common set of Best Practices which can be implemented in production infrastructure and reflected in publication.

Through these activities and feedback from the broader CS community, the ACM Digital Library will be ideally positioned to serve emerging requirements for sharing software, data and other artifacts, leading to increased scientific accountability and the adoption of improved experimental practices.

Check Out the New ACM Queue

There's a new mobile app for acmqueue, our magazine by and for practitioners, available for download via Google play and the Apple App Store. Also available as a desktop digital edition. The bimonthly issues are free to ACM Professional Members. (One-year subscription is $19.99 for non-ACM members.)

Publish in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS)

The ACM International Conference Proceeding Series (ICPS) provides a mechanism to publish the contents of conferences, technical symposia and workshops and thereby increase their visibility among the international computing community.

DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge

Seven teams competed for nearly $4 million dollars in cash prizes in DARPA's Cyber Grand Challenge, which pitted machine learning systems against each other. Jack Davidson, a professor of Computer Science at the University of Virginia, an ACM Fellow and Co-chair of the ACM Publications Board, was a member of the competition’s second-place team. 

ACM Policies on Authorship

Anyone listed as Author on an ACM paper must meet certain criteria, including making substantial intellectual contributions to some components of the original work and drafting and/or revising the paper. Read the entire set of criteria in the Policy on Authorship.

Authors submitting papers for peer-review to ACM publications will represent that the paper submitted is original; that the work submitted is not currently under review at any other publication venue; that they have the rights and intent to publish the work in the venue to which it is submitted; and that any prior publications on which this work is based are documented appropriately. Read more about this policy in the Author Representation Policy.

Replicated Computational Results – Verifying Data Through Replication

ACM TOMS and ACM TOMACS have adopted the Replicated Computational Results (RCR) Initiative, which allows authors to have the journal's referees attempt to scientifically reproduce the computational data in their manuscripts. Manuscripts whose results are successfully replicated receive a special RCR designation upon their publication.

Research for Practice: Real-world Applications of Cutting-edge Theory

“Research for Practice,” a regular feature in acmqueue, bridges the gap between theory and practice by applying learnings from recent cutting-edge research to the challenges practitioners face on a daily basis. In the latest issue, Camille Fournier presents three papers on distributed consensus systems on implementing Paxos and the easier-to-understand Raft. Joy Arulraj and Andrew Pavlo present three papers on the future impact of nonvolatile memory on DBMS architectures. Together, these papers illuminate how lessons from critical areas in storage and largescale services can be applied to building better software.
