Jeffrey Beall

Jeffrey Beall is an American librarian, best known for drawing attention to "predatory open access publishing", a term he coined, and for creating what is now widely known as Beall's list, a list of potentially predatory open-access publishers. He is a critic of the open access publishing movement and is especially known for his blog, Scholarly Open Access. He has also written on this topic in The Charleston Advisor, in Nature, in Learned Publishing, and elsewhere.

When Beall created his list, he was employed at the University of Colorado, Denver. More recently, he was a librarian at Auraria Library in Denver until March 2018.

ACM - Association for Computing Machinery

ACM - Association for Computing Machinery
The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is an international learned society for computing. It was founded in 1947, and is the world's largest scientific and educational computing society.[1] The ACM is a non-profit professional membership group, with nearly 100,000 members as of 2019. Its headquarters are in New York City.

The ACM is an umbrella organization for academic and scholarly interests in computer science. Its motto is "Advancing Computing as a Science & Profession".


Main category: Association for Computing Machinery conferences
ACM and its Special Interest Groups (SIGs) sponsors numerous conferences with 170 hosted worldwide in 2017. ACM Conferences page has an up-to-date complete list while a partial list is shown below. Most of the SIGs also have an annual conference. ACM conferences are often very popular publishing venues and are therefore very competitive. For example, the 2007 SIGGRAPH conference attracted about 30000 visitors, and CIKM only accepted 15% of the long papers that were submitted in 2005.

  • ASPLOS: International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems
  • CHI: Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems
  • SIGCSE: SIGCSE Technical Symposium on Computer Science Education
  • CIKM: Conference on Information and Knowledge Management 
  • DAC: Design Automation Conference
  • DEBS: Distributed Event Based Systems 
  • FCRC: Federated Computing Research Conference
  • GECCO: Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference 
  • SC: Supercomputing Conference
  • SIGGRAPH: International Conference on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques
  • Hypertext: Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia 
  • JCDL: Joint Conference on Digital Libraries 
  • TAPIA: Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing Conference
  • MobiHoc: International Symposium on Mobile Ad Hoc Networking and Computing

The ACM is a co–presenter and founding partner of the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (GHC) with the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology.

Some conferences are hosted by ACM student branches; this includes Reflections Projections, which is hosted by UIUC ACM.[citation needed].[29] In addition, ACM sponsors regional conferences. Regional conferences facilitate increased opportunities for collaboration between nearby institutions and they are well attended.

  • ACM A. M. Turing Award
  • ACM – AAAI Allen Newell Award
