ACM Emerging Interest Groups

An ACM Emerging Interest Group (EIG) can be viewed as a starting point for creating an ACM Special Interest Group (SIG), a conference, or other new technical activity for ACM.

Starting an EIG doesn’t require the same level of administration that SIGs do. EIGs are meant to have a lightweight structure to allow new groups to form quickly and easily.

EIG on Smart Connected Communities
The Emerging Interest Group on Smart Connected Communities will provide a forum for those interested in the technological evolution of cities, towns and rural communities to interact and network. These communities are entering a new era of transformational change with their citizens increasingly connected to their infrastructure, built environment and resources by smart technologies. This transformation leads to new opportunities for innovation in computing, improved services, and enhanced quality of life. The EIG will bring members together through ACM workshops, conferences and publications.
