Welcome to the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and University of Maryland Linux Users Group (UMLUG) for the University of Maryland, College Park chapter.

ACM is a national society dedicated to advancing computing as a science and profession. We are one of many worldwide chapters of ACM. ACM, the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, delivers resources that advance computing as a science and a profession. ACM provides the computing field’s premier Digital Library and serves its members and the computing profession with leading-edge publications, conferences, and career resources. Chapters are the “local neighborhoods” of ACM. A Student chapter serves as a gateway to forums, panel discussions, and symposia that further a student’s professional development. Preparation and presentation of technical reports and papers and cooperative efforts on research projects allow students to test their technical expertise.
