Sponsorsand Cooperating Societies
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.
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
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.
