The Chicago Chapter of the ACM is a local professional chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). Read more about our parent organization on their website.
The Chicago Chapter holds public meetings once a month during our program year (September - June). We typically meet on the second Wednesday of the month. See our home page for the schedule of upcoming meetings.
Welcome our new 2012-2013 Officers
Ron Greenberg is a computer science faculty member at Loyola University. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical engineering and Computer Science at MIT in 1989 and four prior degrees at Washington University St. Louis (B.S./M.S. in Systems Science and Mathematics, B.S. in Computer Science, and A.B. in Mathematics). At Loyola, Dr. Greenberg has been deeply involved in efforts to broaden participation in computing, including programs supported by grants from the National Science Foundation, such as a scholarship program and a program to revitalize computing education in Chicago Public Schools. His more traditional research focus is analysis of algorithms.

I have been working in software in Chicago since 1978. My training was in Astrophysics, but I had always been fascinated by the way a program - something written - could actually do something. The externals of computing have changed a lot since then but the essentials are still just as interesting as they've ever been. I hope to bring speakers, topics, and presentations to the Chicago ACM that reflect what we can do today, maybe remind us of how far we've come, and hint about where we might yet go.
Udayan Das teaches full-time at DeVry University, Chicago in the Engineering and Information Sciences department. He is also in the process of completing his doctoral dissertation in Computer Science, looking at data modeling and network management approaches in sensor networks, at the Illinois Institute of Technology. He has done graduate research in the areas of computer networks, wireless networks, social networks and sensor networks. He has a strong involvement in community work, having volunteered with Open Books and tutoring adults and teaching computer classes at the Jane Addams Resource Corporation, where he is now a member of the Board of Directors.
His previous involvement with the ACM was at the student chapter at the Illinois Institute of Technology, where he served as treasurer in 2004-2005. He is also involved with the IEEE Computer Society in the Chicago area. He is the faculty adviser for the fledgling ACM Chapter at DeVry University-Chicago, which was begun through his efforts.
Greg Neumarke (firstname.lastname@example.org) has been involved with the Chicago Chapter of the ACM for almost 20 years now, starting with a recommendation to attend the SIGART meetings from his Computer Science professor at North Park University in Chicago. Greg worked for many years for a non-profit as part of a small do-everything IT team supporting an office staff of 100, and also helping organize technology for a retail bookstore and annual events. He is now exploring and volunteering in new career directions in open source/Linux, computer refurbishing and education.
I have served the Chapter in the past as Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer.
