I am privileged to invite you to partake in ACM Sacramento Chapter Activities like the Distinguished Speaker Program (DSP) Series Talks, Workshops, Panels and Mentorship Programs we are working on in 2017.
ACM is the oldest and largest educational and scientific computing society worldwide, with more than 100,000 members in over 100 countries. We launched 2015 with four exciting and informative DSP Talks by renowned ACM Distinguished Speakers – Prof Bebo White from Stanford, Dr Laura Haas, Director IBM Research Labs, Silicon Valley, Dr Dan Russell from Google and Prof Sven Koenig, University of Southern California. In 2016, we continued to more exciting talks by Dr. Jacquelyn Morie on VR, Prof Rakesh Verma from University of Houston, Jim Parks from SMUD, Shekhar Shrivastava from Micro Focus, Dr. Yujing Wu from Samsung.
I also take a moment to thank venue sponsors, Department of Technology, Sacramento County for making available a training room for these talks as well as to Hacker Lab and Impact Venture Capital for making their facilities available for a few talks.
With the achievements of 2015 and feedback from 2016, we have started plans to introduce Mentoring for Sacramento High School Students. as requested by SETA – Sacramento Education and Training Agency.
Lauren Mechals from SETA is coordinating with Chapter Members, who are excited to contribute towards our children’s education and preparedness and well into 2017 with all these exciting initiatives as “Local Neighborhoods”!
Join our hands for making ACM Sacramento Chapter a vibrant chapter.
Please make it your own and see how you can make a difference!
Dr. Harsh Verma
Chairman, ACM Sacramento Chapter
