The orientation is meant to provide an overview of ACM for newly elected SIG leaders. It will start with a continental breakfast followed by a general session from 8:30 am – 9:15 am. Participants will then be placed into small groups to attend workshops on Finance, IS, Publications, Membership, Chapters and PR. The workshops are done in “round-robin” fashion with the speakers moving from session to session. Following the last session at 2:50 which will be followed by a SIG/Conference Fair where participants will have appointments at a variety of stations to discuss the latest information on SIG Services and conference activity. The “Fair” is a new format we are experimenting with in order to personalize the sessions based on the specific needs of the participants.
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.
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. RfP consistently serves up expert-curated guides to the best of CS research, and relates these breakthroughs to the challenges that software engineers face every day. In this installment of RfP is by Nitesh Mor, a PhD candidate at UC Berkeley working on the next generation of globally distributed computer systems with a special focus on data security and privacy. Titled “Edge Computing,” this RfP gives an overview of some of the most exciting work being done in the area of computing infrastructures and applications. It provides an academic view of edge computing through samples of existing research whose applications will be highly relevant in the coming years.
