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.

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.

Get Involved with ACM

ACM is a volunteer-led and member-driven organization. Everything ACM accomplishes is through the efforts of people like you. A wide range of activities keep ACM moving, including organizing conferences, editing journals, reviewing papers and participating on boards and committees, to name just a few. Find out all the ways that you can volunteer 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.)

ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems Welcomes Michelle Zhou as New Editor-in-Chief

Meet David Basin

A Computer Science professor at ETH Zurich, and chair for Information Security at the Institute of Information Security, David Basin is Editor-in-Chief of ACM Transactions on Information and System Security (TISSEC). "The challenge of security is that one must design systems that work in adversarial environments where the adversary can be extremely cunning."

Computer Systems Organization Category Editor Needed for ACM Computing Reviews

Computing Reviews, the post-publication review and comment journal of ACM, is seeking a volunteer interested in serving as a category editor in the computer systems organization area.

CACM Apr. 2016 - A Fistful of Bitcoins

New Book on Ada Lovelace from ACM Books

Ada's Legacy: Cultures of Computing from the Victorian to the Digital Age celebrates Ada Lovelace, often described as the "first computer programmer," commemorating the bicentennial of ther birth in 1815 and highlighting the impact of her work, which has reverberated widely since the late 19th century.  This is a unique contribution to a resurgence in Lovelace scholarship, thanks to the expanding influence of women in science,technology, engineering and mathematics.
