by the Assoc. of Computing Machinery

At the Assoc. of Computing Machinery we’re advancing computing as a science + profession. We see a world where computing helps solve tomorrow’s problems — where we use our knowledge + skills to make a positive impact.

We bring together computing educators, researchers, and professionals — to inspire dialogue, share resources, and address the field’s challenges. As the world’s largest computing society, we strengthen the profession’s collective voice through strong leadership, promoting the highest standards, and recognition of technical excellence. We support the growth of our members with opportunities for life‐long learning, career development, and networking.

Founded at the dawn of the computer age, the association’s reach extends to every part of the globe. With more than half of our 100,000 members living outside the US. Its growing membership has led to councils in Europe, India, and China — fostering relationships that strengthen ties across communities.

We’re raising awareness of computing’s important technical, educational, and social issues — around the world.
