Communications of the ACM Launches Special Sections Series with Focus on China Region Technology
November Issue of Flagship Computing Magazine Features Articles on Artificial Intelligence, Supercomputing, Consumer Tech Products, and Other Issues Related to China Region’s Computing Landscape
New York, NY, October 30, 2018—Communications of the ACM, the flagship magazine of the Association for Computing Machinery, today published the first of a series of regional special sections. The inaugural regional special section focuses on the China region and comprises 13 articles examining computing and information technology in China, Macau and Hong Kong today. Widely regarded as the leading print and online publication for the computing and information technology fields, Communications of the ACM was established in 1958 and today reaches a monthly readership of nearly 100,000 worldwide.
The theme of the new series is “Here Comes Everybody…to Communications.” According to Andrew A. Chien, Editor-in-Chief of Communications, a primary goal of the series is to build “an inclusive forum that spans the global community, with active participation from everyone, everywhere.” Said Chien, “We will add a regional special section in a few issues of Communications each year, highlighting the leadership, unique characteristics and distinctive development of computing in each featured region.”
The China Region Special Section has been nearly a year in the making, and was developed by a team of industry and academic leaders in the China Region, led by Wenguang Chen of Tsinghua University and Xiang-Yang Li of the University of Science and Technology of China.
