ACM & ACM-W SIGs

What are SIGs? ๐Ÿคจ

We’re glad you asked! ๐Ÿ˜

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) represent major areas of computing, addressing the interests of technical communities that drive innovation. SIGs offer a wealth of conferences, publications and activities focused on specific computing sub-disciplines. They enable members to share expertise, discovery and best practices. - ACM

Which ones do we have at UCF? ๐Ÿค”

UCF used to have 6 SIGs:

  • SIGGRAPH (Videogame Programming)
  • SIGWEB (Web Programming)
  • SIGAI (Artificial Intelligence / Robotics) presently known as AI@UCF
  • SIGCSE (Programming Beginners)
  • SIGBED (Embedded Systems)
  • SIGW (Women in Tech) presently known as ACM-W
What happened to them? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Can I still join one? ๐Ÿง

A few years ago, some of the SIGs separated from ACM and became their own RSOs at UCF.

As of right now, ACM & ACM-W don’t have any SIGs, but we are currently trying to start them up again!

If you are intersted in leading or joining a SIG, please fill the SIG Interest Form or contact us! ๐Ÿคฉ
