Hide Profile

The Association for Computing Machinery was founded in 1947 and has grown to become the oldest and largest educational and scientific computing society. It maintains the computing field's premier Digital Library and serves a membership in more than one hundred countries with publications, conferences and career resources. The Special Interest Groups (SIGs) of the ACM are technical communities representing virtually every major area of computing. There are also hundreds of professional and student chapters on a local level. The ACM and the SIGs sponsor more than a hundred and twenty technical meetings annually. The ACM began as the Eastern Association for Computing Machinery at a meeting at Columbia University in New York on September 15, 1947. A headquarters office was established in New York and the first employee was hired in 1960. Prior to that time, it was administered entirely by the membership. It now has a staff of over seventy five people under the executive officer. The ACM is governed by a Council consisting of sixteen members and is the highest governing authority in ACM. The headquarters staff provides organization support in membership and subscription functions, coordinates the activities of chapters and committees, acts as a liaison for meetings sponsored by the organization and produces ACM publications. Four boards, Membership, Publications, SIG and Education, are comprised of membership volunteers and headquarters staff and manage ACM's products and services.

"The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is one of the two largest scientific, educational and technical society of the computing community...Founded in 1947, the Association is dedicated to the development of information processing as a discipline, and to the responsible use of computers in an increasing diversity of applications."
