Welcome to ACM SIGCAS
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 USACM, SIGITE and SIGCSE. Check back later in December for news regarding our annual SIGCSE pre-conference event.
Please join us on Thursday, December 18, at 12 Noon Eastern time for a free learning webinar, "Getting Cyber Safety Through to Employees (and anyone else)", presented by Ron Woerner and moderated by SIGCAS Vice Chair, Karla Carter. Details can be found in our Events area.
We are accepting submissions for our January 2015 newsletter on Security, Privacy, and Human Behavior. Submission deadline is December 15, 2014. Please contact our editors with questions and submissions.
