“Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships”
This beautiful quote from Michael Jordan truly defines the shining journey of UPES ACM student chapter
Every year, the UPES ACM student chapter runs an intensive recruitment drive in the month of August, to bring in new talent. Guiding the new students in college and spread awareness about ACM and its importance is the prime motive behind this drive. In order to get the attention of people, classroom presentations were given and helpdesks were set up in the campus.

This includes information about history of ACM and UPES-ACM Student Chapter, the team, and the endless benefits that an ACM membership can offer.
Also, the promotional material provided by ACM HQ including flyers, posters and pens, helped in creating an impact among the students of the University.
Apart from the promotional drive, our previous work and the success of the past events speak for themselves. The talk of ACM being the best technical society in the campus, never stops taking rounds.
A majority of students have become members, and enjoyed the ACM advantage throughout the year. These advantages include concession in event registration fees, opportunity to seek mentorship under seniors, a chance to network with like-minded people, etc.
The number of people who enrolled into UPES ACM & UPES ACM-W Student Chapters is 348, and the diversity they have offered to the chapter is what makes us unique. It was not just the students from undergraduate programs, but even the students pursuing their postgraduate degree showed interest in our organization. This number of new registrations rising exponentially every year, the chapter has set a new benchmark in the University.
With more than 500 active members presently, the team is stronger than ever.
For recruitment as office bearers and the Core Committee of the chapter, the students are judged through a series of screening rounds. Applications are rolled out for all students of not only Computer Science but also all Engineering branches and the applicants have to submit their Curriculum Vitae within a week.
A rigorous group discussion followed by a Personal Interview round is held before the best of the lot are handpicked by the Chapter’s Faculty Coordinator himself. Such rigorous procedure ensures that only the students who promise dedication and quality get through.
It is the quality of this team that promises a successful year ahead.
Why I Belong to ACM
Hear from Bryan Cantrill, vice president of engineering at Joyent, Ben Fried chief information officer at Google, and Theo Schlossnagle, OmniTI founder on why they are members of ACM.
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.
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.
