Professional Chapters

ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery is the world’s largest educational and scientific society, uniting computing educators, researchers, and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources and address the field’s challenges. ACM strengthens the 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 Professional Chapters unite colleagues in particular geographical areas, offer the opportunity to gain immediate access to technological advances, and establish a personal networking system in the locale. The chapters host lectures by internationally known computer professionals, sponsor state-of-the-art seminars on the most pressing issues in information technology, conduct volunteer training workshops, and publish informal newsletters.

The Office of the ACM Trivandrum Professional Chapter functions at IIITM-K since January 2013. The Chapter regularly organises training programs, workshops and seminars for its members and IIITM-K Student community.
