Get Involved with ACM's Special Interest Groups

ACM’s Special Interest Groups (SIGs) represent the major areas of the dynamic computing field.  A primary source of original research and personal perspectives from the world's leading thinkers in computing and information technology, they foster technical communities within their respective specialties across countries and continents.

ACM’s SIGs require active participation from a individuals within their respective technical communities. There are a wide variety of ways that you can get involved. If you are interested in volunteering with one of ACM's SIGs in your technical area, please scontact the leadership of the SIG and explain your desire to get more involved with the SIG or its meetings. For a listing of ACM's SIGs, please visit http://www.acm.org/special-interest-groups/sigs-by-knowledge-area.

Thanks again for your interest.

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. 

ACM Case Studies

Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. Often through first-hand accounts, these pieces explore what the challenges were, the tools and techniques that were used to combat them, and the solution that was achieved.

Why I Belong to ACM
