Special Interest Groups
ACM's Special Interest Groups (SIGs) represent major areas of computing, addressing the interests of technical communities that drive innovation. SIGs offer a wealth of conferences, publications and activities focused on specific computing sub-disciplines. They enable members to share expertise, discovery and best practices.
ACM and IEEE Computer Society awarded the the 2015 ACM/IEEE Computer Society Ken Kennedy Award to UC Berkeley professor and ACM-W Athena Lecturer Katherine Yelick for innovative research contributions to parallel computing languages.
A team led by Johann Rudi of the University of Texas at Austin has received the 2015 ACM Gordon Bell Prize, presented at SC15 for their entry, "An Extreme-Scale Implicit Solver for Complex PDEs: Highly Heterogeneous Flow in Earth’s Mantle."
ACM's Special Interest Group on High Performance Computing and Intel are encouraging graduate students in data science and computational science to apply for a new international program of graduate fellowships that aims to increase diversity in these fields. The deadline for applications is April 30.
Maciej Besta of ETH Zurich and Dhairya Malhotra of the University of Texas at Austin have been named recipients of 2015 ACM/IEEE-CS George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowships.
Best Paper Awards are presented at many ACM conferences to authors whose work represents groundbreaking research in their respective areas. By recognizing these select papers for their ingenuity and importance, ACM highlights some of the theoretical and practical innovations that are likely to shape the future of computing.

Volunteer commitment and coordination is the foundation that makes an ACM conference successful. ACM provides a comprehensive resource manual with instructions and best practices to help create the best possible event.
Chapters are the "local neighborhoods" of ACM. They serve as activity hubs for ACM members and the computing community at large, offering seminars, presentations, and opportunities to meet peers and experts in many computing fields.
The most comprehensive collection of full-text articles and bibliographic records covering computing and information technology includes the complete collection of ACM's publications.
