Outstanding Chapter Activities Submissions

Thank you to our panel of judges for agreeing to help us out!

We hope that this set up will allow for a smooth and efficient judging process. Following the list of submissions is the rubric for judging that specific category. If you have any questions or concerns throughout this process, please do not hesitate to contact Sunita Jaswal, local_activities@hq.acm.org.

Listed below is a brief description of what we expect, followed by each chapters' submission.

Outstanding Chapter Activities - 36 Chapter Submissions

Chapters should apply to the Outstanding Chapter Activities category if they have sponsored a series of exceptional activities throughout the year or have focused their efforts on a single major activity. They should tell us about their chapter's most successful activities, and should be sure to describe each activity, including how many people participated, how it was funded, and what made it a success.

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.

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. 

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.
