One Hundred One Ideas for ACM-W Chapters
Gloria Childress Townsend, professor of computer science at DePauw University and students, Stephanie Ball and Laura Kuh developed a listing of 101 ideas for ACM-W student chapter activities.
Top ten hints for applying the 101 ideas:
10 – The easiest way to begin: Brown bag lunch
9 – Begin simply; increase complexity, as helpers are found
8 – Aggressively seek internal and external funding
7 – Fully engage students in the organization's operation
6 – Solicit feedback
5 – Brainstorm ways to conserve time/energy
4 – Don't be discouraged: recruit "one woman at a time"
3 – Remember that your efforts will be appreciated forever
2 – Expect mentoring to be reciprocal and fulfilling
1 – Start now!
ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” is your number one resource for keeping up with emerging developments in the world of theory and applying them to the challenges you face on a daily basis. In this installment, Dan Crankshaw and Joey Gonzalez provide an overview of machine learning server systems. What happens when we wish to actually deploy a machine learning model to production, and how do we serve predictions with high accuracy and high computational efficiency? Dan and Joey’s curated research selection presents cutting-edge techniques spanning database-level integration, video processing, and prediction middleware. Given the explosion of interest in machine learning and its increasing impact on seemingly every application vertical, it's possible that systems such as these will become as commonplace as relational databases are today.
ACM's prestigious conferences and journals are seeking top-quality papers in all areas of computing and IT. It is now easier than ever to find the most appropriate venue for your research and publish with ACM.
You can use your technical skills for social good and offer volunteer support on software development projects to organizations who could not otherwise afford it. SocialCoder connects volunteer programmers/software developers with registered charities and helps match them to suitable projects based on their skills, experience, and the causes they care about. Learn more about ACM’s new partnership with SocialCoder, and how you can get involved.
