Publications

Each of the following publications are available free to SIGCSE members in the ACM Digital Library:

  • ACM Inroads (2010 to present) quarterly magazine:
    • "Paving the Way Toward Excellence in Computing Education"
    • The consistent high quality of inroads (see SIGCSE Bulletin below) led to the approval by the ACM Publications Board for SIGCSE to transition inroads to ACM magazine status beginning in 2010.
    • SIGCSE sponsors Inroads, pays for it, produces it, and profits from it. It will include a “SIGCSE Corner” in each issue. A subscription is included as a member benefit. However, the ACM Publications Board “controls” Inroads, for example they appoint the editors.
  • SIGCSE Bulletin (1969 to present) quarterly newsletter:
    • evolved from an informal gathering of news and ideas to a venue for columns, editor-reviewed articles, research announcements, editorials, etc.
    • includes all SIGCSE Symposium Proceedings from 1970 (the 1st Symposium) through 2009 (the 40th Symposium)
    • includes all ITiCSE Conference Proceedings and reviewed & accepted Working Group reports from 1996 (the 1st Conference) through 2009 (the 19th Conference)
    • adopted the tag name inroads between 1997 and 2009 during which time the name inroads is synonymous with SIGCSE Bulletin
    • in 2010, with the inception of ACM Inroads magazine, reverts to being simply called the Bulletin, and is transformed into an electronic newsletter sent to all SIGCSE members providing communications about SIGCSE: announcing activities, publicizing events, and highlighting topics of interest
  • SIGCSE Symposium Proceedings - 1970 to present
    • The SIGCSE Technical Symposium addresses problems common among educators working to develop, implement and/or evaluate computing programs, curricula, and courses.
