Faculty members elected to leadership positions in the Association for Computing Machinery

Thursday, July 4, 2013

Two faculty members from the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science have been elected to leadership positions in the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

Professor Charles Clarke was elected Chair of the Special Interest Group on Information Retrieval (SIGIR) and Professor Srinivasan Keshav was elected Chair of the Special Interest Group on Communication (SIGCOMM). ACM's special interest groups represent virtually every major area of computing, and offer a wealth of conferences, publications, and activities on the local-to-global scale, providing unlimited opportunities for sharing technical expertise and first-hand knowledge of the latest development trends.
 
The ACM Special Interest Group on Information Retrieval welcomes members working in all aspects of information storage, retrieval, and dissemination, including research, development, evaluation, and education. The mission of SIGIR has expanded to cover a variety of search-related research topics applied to a broad range of unstructured data including text, images, video, audio, and recorded speech. SIGIR sponsors its own conference on research and development in information retrieval and co-sponsors several other conferences and workshops.
 
The ACM Special Interest Group on Data Communication provides a forum for computing professionals involved in the vital field of data communication. SIGCOMM is also a community resource for those interested in network research, network standards, network history, and the educational aspects of networking. SIGCOMM and IEEE co-sponsor the ACM/IEEE Transactions on Networking journal.
 
The election of faculty members to these groups speaks to the excellent work being done by the school, and to the level of accomplishment and knowledge of our professors within their areas of expertise.
