The ACM Special Interest Group on Software Engineering provides a forum for computing professionals from industry, government and academia to examine principles, practices, and new research results in software engineering.
In the United States, and throughout many regions around the world, current events have brought attention to the urgent need for equality and respect for all individuals. ACM reaffirms its commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion within the global computer science community.
As an international organization of nearly 100,000 professionals, ACM respects the essential worth of all people and firmly believes that diversity strengthens the scientific enterprise and society as a whole. ACM’s Code of Professional Ethics embodies these principles, and our Diversity and Inclusion Council works to translate them into effective action.
ACM is committed to creating an environment that welcomes new ideas and perspectives, and where hostility or other harmful behaviors are not tolerated. As an organization, we stand with those who promote inclusivity.
SIGSOFT's Research Highlights initiative is selecting papers from its sponsored conferences that show recent, significant, and exciting results that are also of general interest to the computer science research community.
SIGSOFT has a new initiative to improve the quality of research papers and peer reviews. Read about it and contact the co-chairs to participate.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2020 SIGSOFT Awards:
We're looking for volunteers to drive initiatives to help improve the software engineering research community. The initiatives includes Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging; Open Science; Data-driven Introspection; Conference Operations; Paper and Review Quality; and many more. We want to provide you with a platform for topics that you are passionate about. For more information and to sign up for the initiatives, please visit our initiatives page.
Have an idea for a special project? Pitch it to our Special Projects Liaison, Will Tracz.
Find out how you can present a webinar.
Please review ACM's policy on research artifact review and badging. The policy aims to promote the integrity of the research ecosystem by increasing the likelihood that results can be independently replicated and reproduced.
Here are some computer science resources for women, both those interested in degrees and those of pre-college age.
Please join us for the upcoming SIGSOFT and ACM webinars. They include traceability, probabilistic programming and teaching future software developers.
Here is the Open TOC, a list of open access conference proceedings.
Plan to participate in these conferences. ESEC/FSE is the Joint European Software Engineering Conference and Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering. ICSE is the International Conference on Software Engineering.
ESEC/FSE 2020 will be held 8 - 13 November, 2020 in Sacramento, California.
ICSE 2021 will be held 23 - 29 May, 2021 in Madrid, Spain.

Software Engineering Notes (SEN) is SIGSOFT's newsletter with letters, columns, reports, conference proceedings and reviews.
Articles, reports, reviews, columns, announcements and book reviews for publication in SEN should be submitted via our SEN management site.
The ACM Special Interest Group on Software Engineering seeks to improve our ability to engineer software by stimulating interaction among practitioners, researchers, and educators; by fostering the professional development of software engineers; and by representing software engineers to professional, legal, and political entities.
As a Special Interest Group within ACM, SIGSOFT operates under a set of Bylaws that govern our charter, officers, Executive Committee, conferences, membership and other topics.
ACM has updated its Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. Please review the new code.
