About ACM Publications
For more than 60 years, the best and brightest minds in computing have come to ACM to meet, share ideas, publish their work and change the world. ACM's publications are among the most respected and highly cited in the field because of their longstanding focus on quality and their ability to attract pioneering thought leaders from both academia and industry.

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.
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.
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.
The most comprehensive collection of full-text articles and bibliographic records covering computing and information technology includes the complete collection of ACM's publications.
Changes expand access to Special Interest Group conference proceedings. ACM offers flexible options that fit computing researchers' individual needs.
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.
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.
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.)
ACM Transactions on Asian and Low-Resource Language Information Processing Welcomes Nianwen Xue as New Editor-in-Chief
ACM Transactions on Asian and Low-Resource Language Information Processing (TALLIP) welcomes Nianwen Xue as its new Editor-in-Chief, effective June 1. Nianwen is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department and Language and Linguistics Program at Brandeis University.
There is strong demand that databases be given the same scholarly status and citation diligence as academic works, but what is the most effective way to do this? In this video, Susan Davidson discusses "Why Data Citation Is a Computational Problem," a Contributed Article in the September 2016 Communications of the ACM.
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.
ACM Journal of Experimental Algorithmics Welcomes Gonzalo Navarro as New Editor-in-Chief
ACM Journal of Experimental Algorithmics (JEA) welcomes Gonzalo Navarro as its new Editor-in-Chief, effective July 1. Gonzalo is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Chile.
ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems Welcomes Michelle Zhou as Editor-in-Chief

In this video, Andreas Velten discusses "Imaging the Propagation of Light through Scenes at Picosecond Resolution,” a Research Highlights article in the September 2016 Communications of the ACM. The article explores a novel imaging technique called femto-photography and its ability to capture and visualize the propagation of light.
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.
acmqueue’s “Research for Practice” column 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.
