ACM Names Inaugural Class of Future of Computing Academy

May 9, 2017

ACM has chosen the inaugural class of the ACM Future of Computing Academy (FCA), a new initiative to support and foster the next generation of computing professionals. The Academy is a platform that enables the next generation of researchers, practitioners, educators and entrepreneurs to develop a coherent and influential voice that addresses challenging issues facing the field and society in general.

The members of the Academy will be expected to participate in activities for the benefit of their generation as they build and shape new experiences to advance computing. They will develop a network of individuals looking to support, drive and develop the field and profession of computing. In addition, members of the academy and ACM will be encouraged to develop an extended network of practitioner and academic mentors.

The first meeting of the ACM Future of Computing Academy will be on June 25, 2017 in San Francisco. ACM FCA members will also be invited to attend ACM's celebration of 50 years of the ACM Turing Award on June 23 - 24 at the Westin St. Francis.
