Geographic Diversity


• Discussion and actions from the Council retreat
   – Lead from our strengths (research publications/conferences
     and education) when engaging outside the US.
   – Work to increase geographic diversity in all aspects of ACM
     leadership.
   – When reaching outside the research community to local
     practitioners, reconsider partnerships with national societies.

• First meeting of the task force held in the Fall
• Issues
    – Nascent research community
    – Raising the quality of education
    – Computing professionals have a mix of formal educational
      backgrounds
    – Must work “bottom up”

• Next steps
    – Considering an Education Summit
    – Working with a potential local partner to reach industry
    – Encourage SIGs to consider holding research conferences in India

• Continuing to think through a multi-year plan
Europe


• The greatest concentration of ACM members outside the
  US is in Europe
   – 16% or over 10,000 professional members
   – Greater percentage of academics and researchers
• There are EU-wide computing efforts
   – SIGOPS-Europe (and the EuroSys conference)
   – Informatics Europe
• The “posture” ACM needs to take is a delicate issue
• Organizing a one-day workshop with key leaders from
  academic and industry to discuss what ACM is doing and
  should do in Europe

ACM Education Policy Committee


• An emerging focus/agenda
   – Focus on education and advocacy (vs. program development)
   – Focus (for now at least) on US Education
   – Focus primarily on K-12 STEM education, as this is the area with
     the most serious issues where and the most attention is needed
   – Engage at both the federal and state levels
   – Initial goal:
       • See computer science moved to a “higher” more fundamental level
         when thinking about STEM – and not buried inside “Technology” in
         people’s minds
       • Work to see computer science treated as a legitimate math/science
         elective at the high school level
ACM Education Policy Committee


• Initial actions
   – Commented on the National Science Board’s National Action Plan
     for STEM Education
   – Major review of the funding available for computer science in
     NSF’s STEM programs
   – Meetings with the EHR division of NSF to talk about computer
     science
   – Pushing NCTM to endorse our position that computer science
     should be a viable mathematics elective in high school
   – Panel session at SIGCSE
   – Engagements at Snowbird
