The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the world's largest educational and scientific computing society, uniting computing educators, researchers, and professionals, will introduce 15 leading computer scientists from academia and industry who are spearheading ACM Europe, http://europe.acm.org, a new effort to recognize and support European members and ACM activities in Europe. These leaders have joined the newly formed ACM Europe Council to expand ACM's high-quality technical activities, conferences, and services in the European region.
Director of External Research Programs for Microsoft Research Europe Fabrizio Gagliardi chairs the Council, which will host a special event in Paris on October 8, in conjunction with the European Computer Science Summit, sponsored by Informatics Europe, www.informatics-europe.org/ECSS09. A reception at the event will also honor the achievements of European computer scientists and recognize European winners of ACM's A.M. Turing Award as well as other ACM award winners and ACM Fellows.
"Our goal is to share ACM's vast array of valued resources and services on a global scale," says ACM President Professor Dame Wendy Hall. "We want to discover the work and welcome the talent from all corners of the computing arena so that we are better positioned to appreciate the key issues and challenges within Europe's academic, research, and professional computing communities and respond accordingly. For us, ACM Europe is about seeing leading European computer scientists shape and enhance what ACM does in Europe and for Europe."
