SIG Reports and Statistics
Volunteer commitment and coordination is the foundation that makes an ACM conference successful. ACM provides a comprehensive planning guide with instructions and best practices to help create the best possible event.
This Bylaw defines the purposes of Special Interest Groups (SIGs), which can have other designations as approved by the ACM Council; the rules for forming and dissolving them; and the authority of the SIG Governing Board (SGB) and the ACM Executive Committee (ACM EC) in managing them.
ACM’s success depends not only on the competence of its management and staff, but also upon its reputation for integrity, candor and lack of bias in the conduct of its affairs in the best scientific and professional tradition.
The open exchange of ideas is central to the Association for Computing Machinery’s mission. This requires an environment that embraces diversity and provides a safe, welcoming environment for all.
The Association for Computing Machinery is committed to protecting the privacy of its members and other individuals with whom it interacts.
The purpose of this policy is to provide travel policy guidelines to ACM volunteers.
