Get Involved with ACM Conferences

ACM’s Special Interest Groups (SIGs) sponsor more than 170 computing conferences, workshops, and symposia around the world.  These events, which mirror the state-of-the-art in their respective fields, attract renowned experts from a broad range of computing disciplines. All of these events are organized and programmed by volunteers.

There are a wide variety of functions required to carry out these events, from Conference Chairs and Program Chairs to paper reviewers and referees. If you are interested in getting invloved with one of ACM's confrerneces in your technical area, please contact the organizers of the conference and explain your desire to get more involved with the conference. For a listing of ACM's SIG conferneces, go to http://dl.acm.org/events.cfm.

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.

The DevOps Phenomenon

ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” serves up expert-curated guides to the best of computing research, and relates these breakthroughs to the challenges that software engineers face every day. This installment, “The DevOps Phenomenon” by Anna Wiedemann, Nicole Forsgren, Manuel Wiesche, Heiko Gewald and Helmut Krcmar, gives an overview of stories from across the industry about software organizations overcoming early hurdles of adopting DevOps practices, and coming out on the other side with tighter integration between software and operations teams, faster delivery times for new software features, and achieving higher levels of stability.
