I am honored to be running for President of the Association of Computing Machinery in this year’s elections. I have been a member of ACM since my graduate school times, and I have served it in many roles, including ACM Secretary-Treasurer, ACM SIGMOD Chair, and ACM Europe Council member. I seek the ACM members’ votes for the office of the President, so that I may use the opportunities that this highest of roles affords to continue contributing at the most impactful level.
Building on the strengths of ACM and having a continuous dialogue with members as a compass, I intend to initiate or accelerate efforts on advancing computing in interdisciplinarity contexts, adopting Open Access policies and supporting Open Science lifecycles, and coming to the forefront of the global fight for shaping an ethical, equitable, and sustainable future, all the while refreshing the ACM organizational structures and processes where necessary to maintain its pioneering spirit and leadership in the field.
