The ACM Digital Library

ACM Books Collections I & II Now Available

ACM is excited to announce the availability of ACM Books Collection II. Similar to Collection I, Collection II will have 25 titles upon completion and will be available via a one-time purchase model with perpetual access rights.

New Title from ACM Books: Conversational UX Design

Conversational UX Design: A Practitioner's Guide to the Natural Conversation Framework, by Robert J. Moore and Raphael Arar, adapts formal knowledge from the field of conversation analysis to the design of natural language interfaces. It outlines the natural conversation framework developed at IBM Research—a systematic framework for designing interfaces that work like natural conversation.

New Series in the Digital Library: PACM on Computing Systems Modeling, Measurement and Evaluation

About PACM

The PACM Series on Measurement and Analysis of Computing Systems publishes original research of the highest quality dealing with  performance  of computing systems, broadly construed. 

New Title from ACM Books: Heterogenous Computing

Heterogenous Computing: Hardware and Software Perspectives, by Mohamed Zahran, discusses both the challenges and opportunities of this technology. All computer systems are heterogeneous. The most obvious heterogeneity is found in computing nodes such as multicore, GPUs, FPGAs, etc. But there are also other heterogeneity factors that exist in computing systems, such as memory system components and interconnection.

Communications of the ACM

ACM's flagship monthly magazine is the premier chronicler of computing technologies, covering the most important discoveries, innovations, and research that both inspire and influence the field.

ACM Special Interest Groups

ACM’s Special Interest Groups (SIGs) represent the major areas of the dynamic computing field and foster technical communities within their respective specialties across countries and continents.

ACM Task Force Addresses Reproducibility in Published Work

A number of ACM communities have independently evolved their own “artifact” review processes and associated definitions of what it means to be reproducible. These communities have come together in this Task Force to collaborate on a common set of Best Practices which can be implemented in production infrastructure and reflected in publication.

Through these activities and feedback from the broader CS community, the ACM Digital Library will be ideally positioned to serve emerging requirements for sharing software, data and other artifacts, leading to increased scientific accountability and the adoption of improved experimental practices.
