ACM DL Alerting Services

Table of Contents (TOC) Alerts by RSS or Email

Any individual is able to set up an RSS or email alert when a new Table of Contents for a particular publication within the ACM Digital Library is made available. To do so a person must have an ACM Web AccountACM Web Accounts are free and easy to set up. To create a Web Account click on the ‘SIGN UP’ link which can be found on the upper right handle corner of any page within the Digital Library.

 

Binders

Binders are personal collections of articles established by individual users of the ACM Digital Library and are available to anyone with an ACM Web Account (sign up here). Both the binders and articles within the binders can be annotated and shared with other users of the DL. These collections can be exported in a variety of bibliographic formats, including BibTexEndnote, and ACM Ref formats. An on-the-fly pdf of a collection can be generated allowing the user to build “custom publications”, however, access to the full text of these materials is controlled by your library or personal subscription.

Volunteer with SocialCoder

You can use your technical skills for social good and offer volunteer support on software development projects to organizations who could not otherwise afford it. SocialCoder connects volunteer programmers/software developers with registered charities and helps match them to suitable projects based on their skills, experience, and the causes they care about. Learn more about ACM’s new partnership with SocialCoder, and how you can get involved.

Edge Computing

ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” is your number one resource for keeping up with emerging developments in the world of theory and applying them to the challenges you face on a daily basis. RfP consistently serves up expert-curated guides to the best of CS research, and relates these breakthroughs to the challenges that software engineers face every day. In this installment of RfP is by Nitesh Mor, a PhD candidate at UC Berkeley working on the next generation of globally distributed computer systems with a special focus on data security and privacy. Titled “Edge Computing,” this RfP gives an overview of some of the most exciting work being done in the area of computing infrastructures and applications. It provides an academic view of edge computing through samples of existing research whose applications will be highly relevant in the coming years.
