About ACM Publications
For more than 60 years, the best and brightest minds in computing have come to ACM to meet, share ideas, publish their work and change the world. ACM's publications are among the most respected and highly cited in the field because of their longstanding focus on quality and their ability to attract pioneering thought leaders from both academia and industry.

ACM conferences are a vital publication venue for computing research, and capture the cutting edge of innovation across the spectrum of computing by publishing refereed and invited papers.
Published by ACM in conjunction with Morgan & Claypool Publishers, ACM Books is a new series of advanced texts for computer science practitioners, researchers, educators, and students.
ACM is transitioning to new authoring templates. The new TeX template consolidates all eight individual ACM journal and proceedings templates. The templates are updated to the latest software versions, were developed to enable accessibility features, and use a new font set. ACM will continue to accept manuscripts using the previous format through Spring 2017.
The ACM International Conference Proceeding Series (ICPS) provides a mechanism to publish the contents of conferences, technical symposia and workshops and thereby increase their visibility among the international computing community.
ACM Journal on Data and Information Quality (JDIQ) is seeking a new Editor-in-Chief. Nominations are due March 15. For more information please visit the JDIQ nominations page.
Many papers published in ACM's Journals hold great value to software engineers interested in staying at the top of their field. The papers in this collection were selected for their relevance to practitioners who strive to build the software that will shape the future.
ACM TiiS and TODAES Present Best Paper Awards for Outstanding Articles
Axel J. Soto, Vlado Kešelj, Evangelos Milios, and Ryan Kiros received the 2015 ACM TiiS Best Paper Award for their article “Exploratory Visual Analysis and Interactive Pattern Extraction From Semi-Structured Data.”
Chung-Wei Lin, Bowen Zheng, Qi Zhu, and Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli received the 2016 ACM TODAES Best Paper Award for their article “Security-Aware Design Methodology and Optimization for Automotive Systems.”
TCPS publishes papers on the interactions of information processing, networking and physical processes. Cyber-Physical Systems has emerged as a unifying name for systems where the cyber parts—the computing and communication parts, and the physical parts—are tightly integrated, both at the design time and during operation.
Replicated Computational Results – Verifying Data Through Replication
ACM TOMS, ACM TOMACS and JEA have adopted the Replicated Computational Results (RCR) Initiative, which allows authors to have the journal's referees attempt to scientifically reproduce the computational data in their manuscripts. Manuscripts whose results are successfully replicated receive a special RCR designation upon their publication.
A number of ACM communities have independently evolved their own “artifact” review processes and associated definitions of what it means to be reproducible. These communities have come together in this Task Force to collaborate on a common set of Best Practices which can be implemented in production infrastructure and reflected in publication.
Through these activities and feedback from the broader CS community, the ACM Digital Library will be ideally positioned to serve emerging requirements for sharing software, data and other artifacts, leading to increased scientific accountability and the adoption of improved experimental practices.
ACM Policies on Authorship
Anyone listed as Author on an ACM paper must meet certain criteria, including making substantial intellectual contributions to some components of the original work and drafting and/or revising the paper. Read the entire set of criteria in the Policy on Authorship.
Authors submitting papers for peer-review to ACM publications will represent that the paper submitted is original; that the work submitted is not currently under review at any other publication venue; that they have the rights and intent to publish the work in the venue to which it is submitted; and that any prior publications on which this work is based are documented appropriately. Read more about this policy in the Author Representation Policy.
A combination of automated queries can give computers the ability to solve puzzles and accomplish unfamiliar tasks in the same way human beings can. Frits Vaandrager, a professor of software science at Radboud University in the Netherlands, discusses this in “Model Learning," a Review Article in the February 2017 issue of CACM.
ACM is a volunteer-led and member-driven organization. Everything ACM accomplishes is through the efforts of people like you. A wide range of activities keep ACM moving, including organizing conferences, editing journals, reviewing papers and participating on boards and committees, to name just a few. Find out all the ways that you can volunteer with ACM.
The new journal PACM on Interactive, Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Technologies (IMWUT) welcomes Gregory D. Abowd as its Editor-in-Chief. The appointment is from November 1, 2016 to October 31, 2019. Gregory is Regents’ Professor and J.Z. Liang Chair in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology.
ACM Transactions on Computation Theory (TOCT) welcomes Venkatesan Guruswami as its Editor-in-Chief. The appointment is from February 1, 2017 to January 31, 2020. Venkatesan is a Professor in the Computer Science Departmant at Carnegie Mellon University, and is active in its Algorithms and Complexity Theory group.
There's a new mobile app for acmqueue, our magazine by and for practitioners, available for download via Google play and the Apple App Store. Also available as a desktop digital edition. The bimonthly issues are free to ACM Professional Members. (One-year subscription is $19.99 for non-ACM members.)
Changes expand access to Special Interest Group conference proceedings. ACM offers flexible options that fit computing researchers' individual needs.

Popular narratives of the development of computing often overlook figures and landmarks outside of British and American origin. The predominantly Anglocentric perspective of these histories tend to overlook or omit developments that took place outside the U.K. and the U.S. Herbert Bruderer, a computing historian in Zurich, discusses "Computing History Beyond the U.K. and U.S.: Selected Landmarks from Continental Europe," a Contributed Article in the February 2017 Communications of the ACM.
“Research for Practice,” a regular feature in acmqueue, bridges the gap between theory and practice by applying learnings from recent cutting-edge research to the challenges practitioners face on a daily basis. In this installment, Arvind Narayanan and Andrew Miller deliver the latest updates from the burgeoning body of research on cryptocurrencies and deep learning. Then, Song Han provides an overview of hardware trends related to deep learning, including using hardware and hardware-aware techniques to encompass networks, improve their performance, and reduce their energy consumption.
