ACM/SIGDA Information

ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery,, is the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, uniting computing educators, researchers and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources and address the field’s challenges. ACM strengthens the computing profession’s collective voice through strong leadership, promotion of the highest standards, and recognition of technical excellence. ACM supports the professional growth of its members by providing opportunities for life-long learning, career development, and professional networking.  

ACM provides the computing field’s premier Digital Library (DL), an invaluable online resource of nearly two million fully searchable pages of text, including a 50+ year archive, from ACM’s high quality journals and proceedings. The DL also reaches the entire world of computing through the fully integrated Guide to Computing Literature.

ACM’s 35 Special Interest Groups (SIGs) focus on different computing disciplines. More than half of all ACM members join one or more of these Special Interest Groups. The SIGs publish newsletters and sponsor important conferences such as SIGGRAPH, OOPSLA, DAC, ICCAD and CHI, giving members opportunities to meet experts in their fields of interest and network with other knowledgeable members.

ACM/SIGDA, (Special Interest Group on Design Automation) has a long history of supporting conferences and the EDA profession. In addition to sponsoring ICCAD, SIGDA sponsors DAC, DATE, and ASP-DAC, plus approximately 15 smaller symposia and workshops. SIGDA provides a broad array of additional resources to our members, to students and professors, and to the EDA profession in general. SIGDA organizes the University Booth and Ph.D. Forum at DAC and the CADathlon at ICCAD, and funds various scholarships and awards (including the IEEE/ACM William J. McCalla ICCAD Best Paper Award). Benefits provided to SIGDA members include free access to all SIGDA sponsored publications in the ACM Digital Library, reduced registration rates for SIGDA sponsored events, and the SIGDA’s E-Newsletter (containing information on upcoming conferences and funding opportunities), emailed to members twice each month. The SIGDA E-Newsletter also includes SIGDA News which highlights most relevant events in EDA and semiconductor industry and the “What is...?” column that brings to the attention of EDA professionals the most recent topics of interest in design automation. SIGDA has pioneered electronic publishing of EDA literature, beginning with the DA Library in 1989, which captured 25 years of EDA literature onto an archival series of CDROMs. SIGDA also provides strong support for the ACM journal TODAES (Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems).
