In his new position, he will bring focus to our initiatives aimed at making the SIG more diverse and continue and expand the many initiatives that had been started in that area. In instances when such misconduct occurs, we are committed to bringing all available measures to bear. At the initiative of the previous EC and of members of our community, the SIG had put in place a very explicit policy against harassment and discrimination and requested that it be publicly highlighted at all our conferences.
This policy has now been replaced by a revised ACM policy that supersedes all individual SIG policies and is equally explicit in leaving no doubt that any instance of sexual harassment or discrimination will not be tolerated.
The new ACM policy offers explicit guidelines for handling and reporting such issues, and we will continue to require that those be publicly advertised at all our conferences.
The investigation of any reported violation and the enforcement of the applicable penalties is now also handled by ACM, which should ensure that consistent penalties are applied as warranted. As was the case when the handling of penalties was internal to the SIG, the disclosure of those penalties remains a challenge, as there are obviously legal implications associated with any public or semi-public disclosure.
Neverthelesswe understand the need for some form of institutional memory to at the very least ensure that individuals found violating ACM policy are excluded from SIG activities in a manner consistent with their penalties.
We will work with ACM to develop appropriate mechanisms so that individuals with a need to know are made aware of those penalties, and therefore in a position to make informed decisions. As announced in the previous section, the SIG has added a new position of director for diversity and outreach on the EC.
The position is intended to help us develop new initiatives for making our SIG more diverse, and equally important ensuring that we respect and nurture this diversity across all our events.
Finally, there are several other initiatives taking place at the ACM level, in particular the new Code projectwhich seeks to update the ACM Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct that had been first adopted back in It is our hope that even if much progress still remains to be made, those many efforts will contribute to, if not eliminating instances of violations, at least make them rare and empower anyone who find themselves in such a situation.
If you have suggestions for other initiatives that could help us move forward in that direction, please let us know by emailing any member of the EC.
As in the previous issue, all the accepted technical papers have released their artifacts. These artifacts will help other researchers to improve the results published in CCR by easily comparing their new ideas with those described in the related work.
As announced in the last issue, the CCR Online website, https: Several submitted articles have been posted in this section and I encourage you to look at them and provide constructive comments to their authors.
Three technical papers were accepted from the open call.ICDATA, the International Conference on Data Science, is the renamed former International Conference on Data Mining, DMIN, which was held in the past thirteen alphabetnyc.comore, we will continue with the 14th conference on this topic.
We hope that the new name (and acronym) will be more attractive and reflect a more modern perspective – although the content itself has not changed dramatically. Data Mining Tool.
