ACM International Conference Proceedings Series Seeks New Editor-in-Chief

The term of the current Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS) is coming to an end, and the ACM Publications Board has set up a search committee to assist the Board in selecting the next EiC.

Nominations, including self-nominations, are invited for a three-year term as ICPS EiC, beginning on July 1, 2019. The EiC appointment may be renewed at most one time. This is an entirely voluntary position, but ACM will provide appropriate administrative support. The 328 applications received in FY 2018 for ICPS resulted in the addition of 247 proceedings volumes to the ACM Digital Library.

The EiC is responsible for maintaining the highest editorial quality, for setting technical direction of the series, and for maintaining a reasonable pipeline of proceedings for publication. He/she has final say on acceptance of proceedings, size of the Editorial Board, and appointment of Editorial Board Members. The EiC is expected to adhere to the commitments expressed in the policy on Roles and Responsibilities in ACM Publishing. For more information about the role of the EiC, see ACM's Evaluation Criteria for Editors-in-Chief.

Nominations should include a vita along with a brief statement of why the nominee should be considered. Self-nominations are encouraged, and should include a statement of the candidate's vision for the future development of ICPS. The deadline for submitting nominations is 30 April 2019, although nominations will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.

Please send all nominations to the search committee chair, Sartaj Sahni (sahni@cise.ufl.edu).

The search committee members are:

  • Sartaj Sahni (University of Florida), Chair
  • Antonio Corrardi (University of Bologna)
  • Marios Dikaiakos (University of Cyprus)
  • Yuanyuan Yang (SUNY, Stony Brook)
  • Albert Zomaya (University of Sydney)

Prediction-Serving Systems

ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” is your number one resource for keeping up with emerging developments in the world of theory and applying them to the challenges you face on a daily basis. In this installment, Dan Crankshaw and Joey Gonzalez provide an overview of machine learning server systems. What happens when we wish to actually deploy a machine learning model to production, and how do we serve predictions with high accuracy and high computational efficiency? Dan and Joey’s curated research selection presents cutting-edge techniques spanning database-level integration, video processing, and prediction middleware. Given the explosion of interest in machine learning and its increasing impact on seemingly every application vertical, it's possible that systems such as these will become as commonplace as relational databases are today.
