Computer Engineering and Computer Science

Key Organizations

Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL)

  • The Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) is the premier international scientific and professional society for people working on computational problems involving human language, a field often referred to as either computational linguistics or natural language processing (NLP).

Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)

  • ACM is a global scientific and educational organization dedicated to advancing the art, science, engineering, and application of computing, serving both professional and public interests by fostering the open exchange of information and by promoting the highest professional and ethical standards.

Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI)

  • The Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) is the premier scientific society dedicated to advancing the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines. 

Computing Research Association

  • The mission of the Computing Research Association is to catalyze computing research by joining with industry, government, and academia. CRA executes this mission by leading the computing research community; informing policymakers and the public; and championing a diverse, welcoming, equitable, and socially responsible computing research community.

IEEE Computer Society

  • Engaging computer engineers, scientists, academia, and industry professionals from all areas of computing, the IEEE Computer Society (CS) sets the standard for the education and engagement that fuels continued global technological advancement. Through conferences, publications, and programs, and by bringing together computer science and engineering leaders at every phase of their career for dialogue, debate, and collaboration, IEEE CS empowers, shapes, and guides the future of not only its members, but the greater industry, enabling new opportunities to better serve our world.

International Association of Computer Science and Information Technology (IACSIT)

  • IACSIT is a registered international scientific association of distinguished scholars engaged in Computer Science and Information Technology. The mission of IACSIT is to foster and conduct collaborative interdisciplinary research in state-of-the-art methodologies and technologies within its areas of expertise. IACSIT organizes conferences, workshops, and provides sponsor or technical support to conferences and workshops. The IACSIT Press also publishes high quality academic international journals in most research areas.

National Center for Women in Technology (NCWIT)

  • NCWIT is a non-profit focused on advancing innovation by correcting underrepresentation in computing. The community works to increase the meaningful and influential participation of all girls and women in computing—at the intersections of race/ethnicity, class, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, and other historically marginalized identities—from K-12 through career.

Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM)

  • Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is an international community of over 14,000 individual members. SIAM was incorporated in 1952 as a nonprofit organization to convey useful mathematical knowledge to other professionals who could implement mathematical theory for practical, industrial, or scientific use. Thier goals are to advance the application of mathematics and computational science to engineering, industry, science, and society, promote research that will lead to effective new mathematical and computational methods and techniques for science, engineering, industry, and society, and provide media for the exchange of information and ideas among mathematicians, engineers, and scientists.

Society for Women Engineers (SWE)

  • The mission of SWE is to empower women to achieve their full potential in careers as engineers and leaders; expand the image of the engineering and technology professions as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity and inclusion.
