FCA Areas of Interest

ACM FCA activities currently cover seven different areas of interest, organized in working groups.


Co-Creation

Education and Outreach

To focus on educational outreach for the youth through demystifying computer science and breaking stereotypes of computer scientists.

Equitable Computing and AI

To raise awareness of how AI could impact equality, to proactively facilitate conversation in this space, to research the challenges that currently exist or may develop; and to be thought-leaders on solutions and the standards that practitioners should uphold.

Fostering the Future of Computing

To support CS researchers and practitioners from diverse backgrounds in the early stages of their career.

Future of Publishing

To focus on creating an archive of computer science research for the future that supports reproducibility, open data, rigor in reviewing, and open access.

Future of Work

To understand and address the effects of technology on the workforce from the perspective of the computing community.

Interdisciplinary

To accelerate interdisciplinary CS research through ameliorating challenges and to facilitate the transfer of knowledge across the boundaries of disciplines both into and out of computer science.
