SIGCAS is the ACM Special Interest Group that addresses the social and ethical consequences of widespread computer usage. SIGCAS' main goals are to raise awareness about the impact that technology has on society, and to support and advance the efforts of those who are involved in this important work.

Our members are computer professionals from both industry and academia, as well as ethicists, psychologists, sociologists and others. We welcome students from a variety of disciplines. Our areas of involvement include computer ethics, universal access to computer technology, security, privacy, and reliability. We collaborate with other ACM bodies that are engaged in related work, such as COPE, USACM, SIGITE and SIGCSE.


Draft 3 of ACM Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct

The ACM has made the proposed Draft 3 of the updates to the ACM Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct available for comment. Information on the Code of Ethics is available at https://ethics.acm.org/.  There is a general discussion board at https://code2018.acm.org/discuss​ providing an opportunity for interested parties to discuss the suggested updates. ACM is also polling their membership through a members only survey.

We encourage all SIGCAS members to read and comment on the draft Code.
