ACM India Council Executive Director Hemant Pande recently announced the relaunch of their website: “Have you taken a look at the brand new website of ACM India? Thanks to migration to the new CMS platform and the efforts put in by the webmasters at ACM HQ, it is now more maintainable and configurable, and looks quite impressive too. Do take a moment to navigate the site and get a feel for all aspects of ACM India.”
