14 Financials DL Distribution to the SIGs DL Distribution in perspective $1,574K

15 Financials DL Distribution to the SIGs DL Distribution in perspective $1,850K

16 Financial Outlook FY09 Budget –Early stages –Because of CACM investment ACM General will be tight –Digital Library Budgeting significant growth in Digital Library revenue: ~$12 Million Budgeting significant DL distribution to the SIGs: ~$2+ Million

17 Digital Library

18 Digital Library Developments New business model for academic consortia and corporations –Goal: create better parity and consistency across our customer base –The new plan Differentiate by sectors (academic, government, comported) US academic –Multi-tier pricing model –Tiers based on Carnegie classification Non-US academic –Multi-tier pricing model –Tiers based on annual usage Government –Single tier Corporate –Multi-tier pricing model –Tiers based on revenue and usage

19 Digital Library Developments New search technology –Endeca –Leader in guided navigation search technologies –New search technology release a few weeks ago Initially released behind the traditional advance search model Immediate serge in searches: from 50,000 a day to 70,000 a day Significant performance improvement –Coming shortly Author pages Surfacing (multiple) publication statistics –A bit later Guided navigation Working with design/usability consultants Will also engage a small consulting group from Pubs and the SIGs

20 ACM Initiatives

21 Internationalization Image and health of the field and profession A new Communications of the ACM

22 Internationalization

23 Better geographic diversity within ACM Country/region-specific initiatives –China –India –Europe

24 Geographic Diversity Observations from the Council retreat –More non-US members than FY02 –ACM geographic distribution is not that different from IEEE –Greatest geographic diversity is in and around research publications DL access and usage Journal/transactions editors Pubs Board Program committees for major research conferences –Least geographic diversity centers on ACM leadership Council and Boards SIG leaders

25 Geographic Diversity Discussion and actions from the Council retreat –Lead from our strengths (research publications/conferences and education) when engaging outside the US. –Work to increase geographic diversity in all aspects of ACM leadership. –When reaching outside the research community to local practitioners, reconsider partnerships with national societies. The EC agreed to oversee this effort

26 China In China, ACM s main goals are to: –Contribute to the advancement of computing –Help develop high-quality professional activities in China –Raise awareness of ACM in China –Grow ACM membership in China

27 China Approach in China: –Establish an ACM China Task Force to lead the effort –Work with the Task Force to develop a multi-year plan for ACM and China The ACM China Task Force –Members Andrew Yao (Chair)Tsinghua University Professor Chuang LinFormer Head, Computer Science, Tsinghua Univ. Professor Zjhiwei XuChinese Academy of Sciences Dr. Zhang YaoxueMinistry of Education Dr. Hui SuIBM China Research Laboratory Dr. Hong-Jiang ZhangManaging Director, Microsoft Advanced Technology Center Stu FeldmanACM President and Google John WhiteACM CEO

28 China Elements of an initial ACM-China plan –Establish an ACM China office –Establish an ACM China website –Engage the academic and research communities –Engage industry

29 China Elements of an initial ACM-China plan (detail) –Establish an ACM China office An ACM Branch office has been established at Tsinghua University The ACM China Office: –Provides information in Chinese to current and potential members –Facilitates financial transactions in joining ACM –Leads the promotion of ACM into the academic community –Supports the ACM China website –Supports ACM activities in China –Establish an ACM China website Provide a version of the ACM website localized for China Facilitates joining and communicating with ACM from within China Create Chinese DL (Digital Library) Pearls –A selection of abstracts (translated into Chinese) identifying key papers for Chinese computer scientists to consider reading

30 China Elements of an initial ACM-China plan (detail) –Engage the academic and research communities Promote the value of ACM membership to faculty and graduate students at top 100 universities Organize an annual Education Summit on Challenges in Computer Science Education in China –Curriculum –Accreditation –Issues in teaching computer science Encourage ACM SIGs to hold more research conferences in China

31 China Elements of an initial ACM-China plan (detail) –Engage industry Promote the value of ACM membership to industry leaders Promote the value of ACM membership to technical staff at Chinese computing companies and organizations Organize a Technology Summit –Organize a technical summit to discuss the technical challenges facing Chinese industry. An important goal of this meeting would be to raise awareness of the importance of computing professional staying technically engaged and aware throughout their career.
