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.

Roy A. Ruddle, Rhys G. Thomas, Rebecca Randell, Philip Quirke, and Darren Treanor received the 2016 ACM TOCHI Best Paper Award for their article The Design and Evaluation of Interfaces for Navigating Gigapixel Images in Digital Pathology.
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.
ACM is transitioning to new authoring templates. The new TeX template consolidates all eight individual ACM journal and proceedings templates. The templates are updated to the latest software versions, were developed to enable accessibility features, and use a new font set. ACM will continue to accept manuscripts using the previous format through Spring 2017.
ACM TiiS and TODAES Present Best Paper Awards for Outstanding Articles
Axel J. Soto, Vlado Kešelj, Evangelos Milios, and Ryan Kiros received the 2015 ACM TiiS Best Paper Award for their article “Exploratory Visual Analysis and Interactive Pattern Extraction From Semi-Structured Data.”
Chung-Wei Lin, Bowen Zheng, Qi Zhu, and Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli received the 2016 ACM TODAES Best Paper Award for their article “Security-Aware Design Methodology and Optimization for Automotive Systems.”
TCPS publishes papers on the interactions of information processing, networking and physical processes. Cyber-Physical Systems has emerged as a unifying name for systems where the cyber parts—the computing and communication parts, and the physical parts—are tightly integrated, both at the design time and during operation.
Replicated Computational Results – Verifying Data Through Replication
ACM TOMS, ACM TOMACS and JEA 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.
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.
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.
The global push to broaden participation in computer science has led to an explosion of interest in blocks-based programming, which allows beginners to compose programs without struggling with the frustrations of syntax. In this video, Caitlin Kelleher discusses "Learnable Programming: Blocks and Beyond" a Review Article in the June 2017 CACM.
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.)
The most comprehensive collection of full-text articles and bibliographic records covering computing and information technology includes the complete collection of ACM's publications.
ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software (TOMS) welcomes Daniel Kressner as its Editor-in-Chief. The appointment is from March 1, 2017 to February 29, 2020. Daniel is an Associate Professor and Chair of the Numerical Algorithms and High-Performance Computing at EPF Lausanne.
ACM Transactions on Computation Theory (TOCT) welcomes Venkatesan Guruswami as its Editor-in-Chief. The appointment is from February 1, 2017 to January 31, 2020. Venkatesan is a Professor in the Computer Science Departmant at Carnegie Mellon University, and is active in its Algorithms and Complexity Theory group.

Overleaf is a free, cloud-based, collaborative authoring tool that provides an ACM LaTeX authoring template. Authors can write using Rich Text mode or regular Source mode. The platform automatically compiles the document while an author writes, so the author can see what the finished file will look like in real time. The template allows authors to submit manuscripts easily to ACM from within the Overleaf platform.

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. The goal of this program is to enable conferences and workshops to cost effectively produce print proceedings for their attendees, while also providing maximum dissemination of the material through electronic channels, specifically, the ACM Digital Library.
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.

“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 this installment, Arvind Narayanan and Andrew Miller deliver the latest updates from the burgeoning body of research on cryptocurrencies and deep learning. Then, Song Han provides an overview of hardware trends related to deep learning, including using hardware and hardware-aware techniques to encompass networks, improve their performance, and reduce their energy consumption.
ACM is a volunteer-led and member-driven organization. Everything ACM accomplishes is through the efforts of people like you.
