ACM has established a new Technology Policy Council to coordinate its policy initiatives worldwide, positioning the group to function as a hub of engagement with government organizations, the computing community, and the public on information technology and computing issues.
Said ACM president Cherri M. Pancake, "ACM's new Technology Policy Council will provide a space in which computing professionals come together to offer global perspectives on global challenges."
Pancake added that ACM's U.S. and European Technology Policy Committees will be folded into the new council.
ACM Technology Policy Council chair Lorraine Kisselburgh said the group's mission is to bolster and advance ACM's policy efforts globally.
ACM said the council will publish a series of bimonthly technical briefs that summarize emerging technologies and research, and offer nonpartisan views on their policy ramifications to decision-makers, the media, and the general public.
