The conference includes a fascinating technical program with research and industrial talks, tutorials, demos, and focused workshops. Keynote speakers include Barbara Liskov “Reflections on Programming Methodology,” Laks V.S. Lakshmanan “On a Quest for Combating Filter Bubbles and Misinformation,” and Christopher Re “Is Data Management the Beating Heart of AI Systems?” This will be an in-person conference held in Philadelphia, PA, and hybrid participation will be available via Zoom,, and Slack, linked through the detailed program.

DIS, Jun 13 – Jul 17

The ACM SIGCHI Conference on Designing Interactive Systems (DIS) is the premier international arena where designers, artists, psychologists, user experience researchers, systems engineers, and many more, come together to debate and shape the future of interactive systems design and practice. The theme for DIS 2022 is “Digital Wellbeing” and the event will be held online. The theme responds to the need for designers and design researchers to not only design for wellbeing, but also to look after their own wellbeing and the people around them, through and with design. The result will be an opportunity to learn who we are and who we want to become. To achieve this, DIS 2022 will be a way to identify how to get there.

PLDI, June 15 – 17

PLDI is a premier forum for programming language research, broadly construed, including design, implementation, theory, applications, and performance. PLDI seeks outstanding research that extends and/or applies programming-language concepts to advance the field of computing. Keynote speakers are Emery Berger (University of Massachusetts Amherst) and Margo Seltzer (University of British Columbia). PLDI 2022 will be held in-person at the Catamaran Resort in San Diego, California, USA.
