SIG Governing Board-Executive Committee Motions - FY'02
Motion: Move that the SGB accept the proposal that the SIGs finance the development of the Guide, in exchange for making the Guide free to all and enabling SIG-specific enhancements to the Guide.
That the SGB EC constitute a group to work with HQ and the ACM EC to agree on the details. (11/20/01)
Motion: Move to endorse exception to ACM policy and allow SIGGRAPH to sole source their Web Programming Services. This is a one-time only exception.
Motion: Move to endorse a waiver to current policy and allow a two-year extension to ACM SIGGRAPH's contract with Freeman Decorating. SIGGRAPH leadership is encouraged to exchange this extension for clear benefit to the conference.
Motion: Move to endorse policy modification on the RFP process bringing the threshold to $75,000 for conferences with budgets in excess of $1M.
Motion: Move to endorse a change in policy on the length of contracts for 3 to 5 years for conferences with budgets in excess of $1M.
Motion: The SGB EC approves the budgets of SIGCAPH, SIGDOC, SIGMICRO, SIGSAC and SIGecomm for FY'03. All Chairs for these SIGs will be required to submit an outline by June 1st indicating their plans to bring the SIG out of financial trouble.
Motion: Move that SIGART be converted to a conference SIG as directed by the SIG Operating Rules.
Why I Belong to ACM
Hear from Bryan Cantrill, vice president of engineering at Joyent, Ben Fried chief information officer at Google, and Theo Schlossnagle, OmniTI founder on why they are members of ACM.
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.
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.
