“Advancing Computing as a Science & Profession” is the motto of ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery,  whose goal is to unite computing educators, researchers and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources and address the field’s challenges.

ACM Professional Chapters unite colleagues in particular geographical areas, offer the opportunity to gain immediate access to technological advances, and establish a personal networking system in the locale.
