IEEE Computer Society and ACM Share Distinguished Speakers Programs

IEEE-Computer Society and ACM are sharing their invited speaker programs, to further the dissemination of technical knowledge of computing fields that greatly benefit both memberships. ACM chapter volunteers can host a speaker from IEEE Computer Society’s Distinguished Visitors Program (DVP), with access to top technology leaders and innovators from nearly every sector of the computing industry, by following the instructions on the DVP site. Make sure you identify yourself as an ACM Chapter.

ACM provides a popular offering of first-quality speakers serving its professional and student chapters. The Distinguished Speakers Program (DSP) owes its success to the many volunteers and staff members of the ACM who generously contribute their time and talent. Organizers of an Computer Society chapter, conference, or event can host a speaker from ACM’s DSP by following the instructions on the DSP site. Make sure you identify yourself as an ACM chapter or event.
