Get Involved with ACM Chapters

ACM Chapters serve as ACM's local neighborhoods, and offer a range of resources and benefits for computing professionals and students to help them shape the future of computing. ACM’s Professional and Student chapters worldwide serve as hubs of activity for ACM members and the computing community at large. They provide seminars, lectures, learning forums and networking opportunities with peers and experts across the computing spectrum.

If you are interested in getting invloved with an ACM chapter near you, or starting a new chapter, please send the following to ryanc@hq.acm.org:

  •         Your name 
  •         Your preferred email address
  •         The city or campus of your local chapter
  •         A short bio statement (100-200 words)
  •         Your CV
  •         A short statement about your technical interests

Thanks again for your interest.

ACM Case Studies

Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. Often through first-hand accounts, these pieces explore what the challenges were, the tools and techniques that were used to combat them, and the solution that was achieved.

Prediction-Serving Systems

ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” is your number one resource for keeping up with emerging developments in the world of theory and applying them to the challenges you face on a daily basis. In this installment, Dan Crankshaw and Joey Gonzalez provide an overview of machine learning server systems. What happens when we wish to actually deploy a machine learning model to production, and how do we serve predictions with high accuracy and high computational efficiency? Dan and Joey’s curated research selection presents cutting-edge techniques spanning database-level integration, video processing, and prediction middleware. Given the explosion of interest in machine learning and its increasing impact on seemingly every application vertical, it's possible that systems such as these will become as commonplace as relational databases are today. 

Why I Belong to ACM
