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.

SIGGRAPH: Seminal Graphics Papers, Volume 2

In recognition of its 50th year as the premier conference and exhibition on computer graphics and interactive techniques, the Special Interest Group on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques (SIGGRAPH) will be publishing Seminal Graphics Papers, Volume 2. This collection of 89 papers celebrates SIGGRAPH’s origins and continued success as a technical and professional society, and typifies the ground-breaking research that has been the conference’s hallmark since 1974. All articles will be open in the DL with a print-on-demand version available for purchase as well.

Virtual Conferences: A Guide to Best Practices

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.

Conferences Best Paper Awards

Best Paper Awards are presented at many ACM conferences to authors whose work represents groundbreaking research in their respective areas.
