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.

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.

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. 

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.
