Our Purpose


Association for Computing Machinery is the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, uniting computing professionals through conferences, publications, special interest groups and local chapters. For over 50 years, ACM has helped computing professionals to be their most creative, connect with peers, and see what’s next, by providing opportunities for life-long learning, career development and professional networking.


Be Creative, Get Connected, Keep Inventing

ACM Local Meetups are up and running in:
