ACM India Conferences
Travel Grants for Conferences
ACM India and the Indian Association for Research in Computing Science (IARCS) jointly offer partial travel grants to faculty, students and postdocs from India to present papers co-authored by them at premier international conferences. For more information, please visit the ACM India-IARCS Travel Grants page.
For Conference Organizers
ACM and SIGs (Special Interest Groups) lend the name of the organization to conferences which are fully sponsored by other nonprofit incorporated organizations. Such cooperation is to be primarily for publicity and to encourage Association members to participate by contributing papers and attending technical sessions. Cooperation specifically excludes financial participation, responsibility, or liability on the part of ACM. Please see the SIG Volunteer Resources page for more information on how to apply for such cooperation.

ACM India has been organizing annual flagship events to discuss trends in science and technology, and to celebrate ACM's spirit and India's accomplishments in computing. This event is attended by ACM Turing Award winners, ACM Office Bearers, researchers and IT professionals. The event is organized by ACM Cochin Professional Chapter in association with the Rajagiri School of Engineering & Technology, Cochin, Kerala. CSPathshala Workshop, iSIGCSE Workshop and IRISS are co-located ACM events with ACM India Annual Event 2019.
Since 2018, ACM India has decided to focus the theme of COMPUTE towards improving the quality of computing education in the country. In this second year of this thematic symposium, the first day overlaps with CC2020, a joint project sponsored by ACM and the IEEE Computer Society to provide comprehensive curricular guidelines for academic programs granting degrees in computing.
Inter-Research-Institute Student Seminar in Computer Science invites CS- research scholars in India to showcase their recent work, either published in 2018 or accepted in 2018 for publication (proof of acceptance will be required), to a conclave of researchers and potential employers. Seeing the success of IRISS in previous years, it has been extended to two days with a broader and richer coverage of contemporary research issues.
Conference on Data Sciences encompasses the areas of data analytics, machine learning and managing big data. Keynote speakers are Milind Tambe (University of Southern California), Subbarao Kambhampati (Arizona State University), Raymond J. Mooney (University of Texas at Austin), and Krishna P. Gummadi (Max Planck Institute for Software Systems).
The ACM India Celebration of Women in Computing will include a Work-in-Progress Research Reports poster making event. Submission deadline is 22 June. AICWIC provides a unique opportunity of collective learning, interacting with experts and peers and showcasing work-in- progress research to an enlightened audience for their valuable insights. This one-day celebration has several intellectually enriching opportunities for women students and professionals in the field of computing.
