ACM Europe at ICT2010 - Exhibition Stand in Zone E: Information Booths, Stand Number E06
Trust-IT has supported the European Council of the world's largest professional society for computing, ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) at ICT2010 (27-29 September in Brussels), Europe's largest event on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) that takes place every two years. The European Council is made up of fifteen distinguished members of computer science who are spearheading ACM 's expansion in Europe.
Fabrizio Gagliardi, Microsoft Research & ACM Europe Chair – “ACM is the oldest and most respected computing professional association world-wide. Very much inspired by the former ACM president Dame Wendy Hall, an ACM European Council was launched last year together with similar initiatives in India and China. This body aggregates a number of leading figures from computing industry and academia. The aim is to make ACM more prominent and relevant to European computer scientists and practitioners while increasing the role and visibility of Europeans in ACM world-wide. Among the various aims, ACM Europe seeks to increase visibility and collaboration with initiatives promoted by the EU whenever appropriate. Participating in ICT2010 is an obvious starting point.”
Several members of the Council along with key representatives from ACM and the ACM President, Alain Chesnais were in attendance at the Exhibition Stand at ICT2010 in Zone E: Information Booths, Stand Number E06, which shone the spotlight on the critical role of computer science and computer science education for the Digital Age. With its 15,000 members, ACM Europe is part of the world’s most respected and largest professional computing society: the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM – www.acm.org). ACM Europe provides an important foundation for the European computing community by ensuring members are kept abreast of all the key developments that are crucial to advance the computing field and support the careers of every age group. This goal is achieved through the dozens of ACM-sponsored computing research conferences held in Europe every year, ACM professional and student chapters across Europe, as well as ACM resources like its Digital Library, the world’s largest and most comprehensive collection of scientific and computing content.
