We are pleased to announce that IMS will be engaging in joint activities with the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM), addressing the dynamic field of Data Science.

As an initial event, the ACM–IMS Interdisciplinary Summit on the Foundations of Data Science will be held June 15, 2019, in San Francisco. The event will bring together luminaries from Computing and Statistics for keynotes and panels on important topics in Data Science, such as fairness, privacy, ethics, causal inference, deep learning, and reinforcement learning, in addition to discussions about the future of Data Science and the role of ACM and IMS. Information about the program and registration will be available shortly at http://acct-www.acm.org/data-science-summit

We are also pleased to announce a joint membership agreement for the two societies. IMS members will receive a 25% discount on ACM membership. Student IMS members will receive free ACM membership.
