About Us

ACM@UIUC is the Association for Computing Machinery student chapter, the world's largest scientific computer society. We are a group of dedicated people interested in exploring the possibilities of computers and discovering new ways to use them!

ACM contains Special Interest Groups, or SIGs, which focus on specific applications of computer science. In our chapter, each SIG operates under ACM@UIUC with free range over its meetings, activities, and purpose. Some SIGs are project-based and devote time to building something innovative or spectacular to showcase. Others are dedicated to teaching, using talks and workshops to help their members understand a particular topic. You can learn more about each SIG on our home page!

ACM@UIUC also runs various events throughout the year, such as ACM Open House, which showcases all the different SIGs at the beginning of each semester, Reflections | Projections, our annual computing conference, and HackIllinois, which is one of the largest hackathons in the nation. We also host a variety of outreach and social events, such as picnics, activity weeks, ACM Happy Hour, and our annual bar crawl. Our SIGs also run their own events! These events are open to all of UIUC, regardless of technical experience or background!

Our executive meetings occur every other week and are open to the public. The ACM officer board, as well as SIG and committee leads, drive discussion about important ACM matters and make decisions based on the consensus of meeting attendees.

ACM@UIUC is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
