                      The Association for Computing Machinery is the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society for the Computer Science/IT community, delivering resources that advance computing as a science and a profession for the past 70 years. An ACM India council was formed in 2009 to give a boost to the computing activities in India and to increase ACM's presence here. ACM Hyderabad Chapter is pleased to host the ACM India Annual Conference 2011 on January 28th and 29th, at the Indian School of Business.

About 500 computing professionals, academics, and students are expected to attend the 2 day event, to discuss the current science and technology trends, celebrate ACM's spirit and India’s accomplishment in computing. Distinguished computer scientists and practitioners, including recipients of the Turing Award, ACM Infosys Award, and President of the ACM have confirmed their participation. Your participation and support will be very helpful to ensure that this event is valuable to the community and encourage ACM India to enrich the regional IT community. The ACM India inaugural event held in Bangalore last year was highly appreciated.
