On March 3, 2022, ACM’s Executive Committee decided not to hold any conferences in Russia while the conflict in the Ukraine and the humanitarian crisis in Europe continue. This decision applies to ACM sponsored conferences and workshops as well as in-cooperation events.
Pieter Abbeel Honored with ACM Prize in Computing.
ACM has named Pieter Abbeel of the University of California, Berkeley and the Co-Founder, President and Chief Scientist at Covariant the recipient of the 2021 ACM Prize in Computing for contributions to robot learning. Abbeel pioneered teaching robots to learn from human demonstrations ("apprenticeship learning") and through their own trial and error ("reinforcement learning"), which have formed the foundation for the next generation of robotics. Abbeel’s groundbreaking research has helped shape contemporary robotics and continues to drive the future of the field.

ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems Goes Gold OA.
As of January 2022, and for a two-year period, all papers published in ACM Transactions on Programming Languages (TOPLAS) will be published as Gold Open Access (OA) and will be free to read and share via the ACM Digital Library. During the first two years, authors will be given the option (but not required) to pay the APC. Archival content will be made open access as of January 1, 2022 as well. For those authors financially unable to pay the APC as of 2024, ACM has developed a waiver program to ensure that no accepted articles to TOPLAS go unpublished as a result of financial need.
Research Publication on Integrating Computational Thinking at the PreK-5 Level.
Although research on computational thinking (CT) within K-12 has been emerging over the past few years, few studies have investigated the teaching of CT at the younger ages. The ACM and the Robin Hood Learning + Technology Fund co-funded this special research publication to examine empirically-based studies that focused on the integration of computational thinking at the elementary levels into a variety of learning disciplines including math, ELA, science, and computer science.

TPC TechBrief Flags Facial Recognition Issues for Global Policy Makers and the Public.
TechBriefs is a series of short technical bulletins by ACM’s Technology Policy Council that present scientifically-grounded perspectives on the impact of specific developments or zvinorevei zvemari
applications of technology. Designed to complement ACM’s activities in the policy arena, the primary goal is to inform rather than advocate for specific policies. The new edition focuses on policy issues raised by facial recognition and its use by governments and the private sector, noting that "facial recognition use is increasing despite the technology’s fundamental limitations, creating profound privacy and ethical challenges."
