Providing Learning Resources for Professional Development
The Education initiative of the ACM India Council includes a number of resources for continued learning and professional development, such as:
- Minigraphs: Each Minigraph is a document comprehensively covering a technical area of current significance, with a detailed introduction followed by a discussion of the main challenges and ending with pointers to further information.
- Eminent Speaker Program: Local ACM Professional and Student Chapters and Institutional Partners in India can invite top technology leaders for talks on topics significant to the computing community.
- Webinar Series: Online webinar sessions by eminent technology leaders from academia and industry.
- Blogs: A platform for theoreticians and practitioners in multiple areas to share ideas and opinions leading to better networking, and attracting fresh researchers.
The ACM India Eminent Speaker Program (ESP) provides local ACM Professional and Student Chapters in India with direct access to top technology leaders and innovators who will give talks on issues that are important to the computing community.
ACM India has launched Minigraphs, a new series of documents comprehensively covering technical areas of current significance. Minigraphs are intended for those with some knowledge of computing: senior undergraduates and postgraduates, and young professionals in industry. They will help readers to answer the question: "Should I think of starting work in this area?"
The list of India-based speakers who are part of ACM's Distinguished Speaker Program is available on the DSP site. ACM India chapters, conferences, academic institutions and industry organizations may also invite them directly using the DSP invitation criteria and workflow by following the individual speaker's link accessible from there.
