ACM Open Conference Statement
The open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression are central to the aims and goals of ACM and its conferences. These aims and goals require an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group, that fosters dignity, understanding, and mutual respect, and that embraces diversity.
ACM is firmly committed to prohibiting discrimination at its conferences against individuals because of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, marital status religion, national origin, ancestry, or disability. All individuals are entitled to participate in any ACM activity free of discrimination, including harassment based on any of the above factors.
ACM is concerned about discriminatory legislation in various locations and will work with conference organizers to best address location related issues.
Volunteer commitment and coordination is the foundation that makes an ACM conference successful. ACM provides a comprehensive planning guide with instructions and best practices to help create the best possible event.

Turing Award winner Pat Hanrahan (Stanford University), Sougwen Chung (artist and researcher), Ime Archibong (Meta), and ACM Turing Award Laureate and Academy Award-winner Ed Catmull (co-founder of Pixar). This event will be held in Vancouver, Canada.
The SIGKDD Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining brings together researchers and practitioners from data science, data mining, knowledge discovery, large-scale data analytics, and big data. Workshops include “Deep Learning on Graphs,” “Machine Learning in Finance,” “Misinformation and Misbehavior Mining on the Web & Making a Credible Web for Tomorrow,” and more. Keynote speakers are Lise Getoor (UC Santa Cruz), Milind Tambe (Google Research), and Shang-Hua Teng (USC). This conference will be held in Washington DC, USA.
The flagship annual conference of the ACM Special Interest Group on Data Communication focuses on the applications, technologies, architectures, and protocols for computer communication. Planned topics include “Admission Control for Performance-Critical RPCs in Datacenters,” “Vivisecting Mobility Management in 5G Cellular Networks,” “Contract-Based Network Sharing,” “Underwater Messaging Using Mobile Devices,” and more. Keynote speakers will be Henning Schulzrinne (Columbia University) and Deborah Estrin (Cornell Tech, Cornell University). The event will be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands

The 2021 edition of the AI for Good Global Summit is a continuous digital event, featuring weekly programming across multiple formats, platforms and time zones, including keynotes, expert webinars, project pitches, Q&As, performances, demos, interviews, networking and more. Upcoming highlights include presentations on AI and climate science, health, and data, and a keynote on "The EU’s Artificial Intelligence Act: How will it impact your life and business?"
In March 2020 ACM formed a Presidential Task Force (PTF) to help conference organizers transition their events to online. The PTF is working on a guide to offer practical advice and shed light on the largely unfamiliar territory of online conferencing.
The report, available here, includes pointers to a live document with additional resources. We welcome comments, suggestions and experience reports from the community.
Best Paper Awards are presented at many ACM conferences to authors whose work represents groundbreaking research in their respective areas. By recognizing these select papers for their ingenuity and importance, ACM highlights some of the theoretical and practical innovations that are likely to shape the future of computing.
