Who We Are

Founded in 1947, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is a major force in advancing the skills of information technology professionals and students worldwide. Today, our 80,000 members and the public turn to ACM for the industry’s leading Portal to Computing Literature, authoritative publications and pioneering conferences, providing leadership for the 21st century.

The WVU Student Chapter of the ACM was revived in Spring 2005 and has already hosted several popular events (including a LAN party, several Linux IntallFests, etc.), with plans for many more to come. The WVU ACM meetings and events provide members not only with opportunities to advance their knowledge in a variety of technological areas, but also with the chance to relax and have some fun with others in similar fields.
