Site Menu ACM, the First Society in Computing, is a major force in advancing the skills and knowledge of Information Technology professionals and students throughout the world. ACM serves as an umbrella organization offering its 80,000 members a variety of forums in order to fulfill its members' needs- the delivery of cutting-edge technical information, the transfer of ideas from theory to practice and opportunities for information exchange. Providing high quality products and services - world-class journals and magazines; dynamic special interest groups; numerous main event conferences; tutorials; workshops; local special interest groups and chapters; and electronic forums - ACM is the resource for life-long learning in the rapidly changing Information Technology field.
ACM SIGSOFT focuses on issues related to all aspects of software development and maintenance. To that end, SIGSOFT provides a forum for computing professionals from industry, government and academia to examine principles, practices, and new research results. SIGSOFT sponsors two major conferences each year, the International Conference on Software Engineering (co-sponsored with IEEE) and Foundations of Software Engineering, as well as specialized conferences on topics such as testing and maintenance. In addition, SIGSOFT sponsors several workshops that bring researchers and practitioners together to discuss and debate more specialized topics. SIGSOFT publishes a six times yearly newsletter, Software Engineering Notes, which includes articles submitted by members as well as the popular forum "Risks to the Public," which describes software safety mishaps and concerns. In addition, members receive proceedings from two sponsored conferences or workshops as a part of membership in the SIG. The SIG also offers its members a Member Plus Package.
Celebrating its 50th anniverary in 1996, the IEEE Computer Society is the oldest and largest association of computer professionals in the world. It offers its 100,000 members a comprehensive program of publications, meetings, and technical and educational activities, fostering an active exchange of information, ideas, and innovation. The society is the world's leading publisher of technical materials inthe computing field. Headquartered in Washington, DC, the society services its members from offices in Los Alamitos, California, Tokyo and Brussels. The Computer Society is the largest technical society with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.
The Technical Council on Software Engineering (TCSE) is the IEEE Computer Society's coordinating body for innovative programs and services in software engineering. TCSE is at the forefront of information exchange and support for both practitioners and researchers throughout the software engineering field. TCSE serves as both a coordinating entity for existing programs and as a wellspring for new initiatives and activities. The Key to the Technical Council approach is economy of scale. TCSE provides both resource sharing and extra resources for developing and continuing programs. These activities cooperate in scheduling, awareness, and encouragement for new programs and services. This forms a new critical mass to foster innovation and the expansion of software engineering offerings for the international members of the IEEE Computer Society.
