CWI researchers Tim Baarslag and Wouter Koolen have been selected as members of the of the ACM Future of Computing Academy (FCA).

The ACM Future of Computing Academy (ACM-FCA) is a new initiative created by ACM to support and foster the next generation of computing professionals. The Academy is a platform that enables the next generation of researchers, practitioners, educators and entrepreneurs to develop a coherent and influential voice that addresses challenging issues facing the field and society in general. The ACM-FCA will seek to harness collective action to define and launch new ACM initiatives that will carry us into the future.

Membership in the Academy is a commitment, not an award. Members of the Academy are expected to engage in activity for the benefit of the next generation of computing professionals. They have the privilege and responsibility to become the voice of the future of the computing field at large and of ACM specifically.

The ACM-FCA will provide its members an uncommon opportunity to expand their network beyond their immediate professional environment. It is a unique chance to work with other accomplished individuals from diverse areas of computing towards the common goal of shaping the future of the computing community and society. Academy members will develop a network of individuals looking to support, drive and develop the field and profession of computing. In addition, members of the academy and ACM will be encouraged to develop an extended network of practitioner and academic mentors.
