ACM Conferences in Europe

About ACM Conferences in Europe

The ACM Europe Council seeks to work with ACM Special Interest Groups to increase the number of ACM conferences in Europe. Our annual technical conference includes a number of satellite events, including the womENcourage conference organized by ACM-WE, the ACM Women Europe Executive Committee. In addition the Council seeks to increase our engagement with ACM conferences held in Europe by presenting ACM awards for best student papers at these events.
