Computer professionals whose scientific freedom and human rights have been violated—1984: a report of the ACM committee on scientific freedom and human rights

This is the third report prepared by the ACM Committee on Scientific Freedom and Human Rights (CSFHR). The first was published in the March 1981 Communications and the second in the December 1982 issue. This report is an update. Since the committee intends to publish future updates, it would appreciate receiving further information about computer scientists whose rights have been violated. Such information should be sent to: Jack Minker, Vice-Chairman, Committee on Scientific Freedom and Human Rights, Department of Computer Science, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 29742.Because those whose scientific freedom or human rights have been violated derive sustenance and support from contacts with their colleagues, the CSFHR has established a program in which ACM chapters “adopt” individual scientists and correspond with them. Such correspondence should touch on the personal and scientific and not discuss political matters. These letters greatly improve the morale of the recipients and are one of the few ways they can keep current with computer science and technology. This CSFHR program is directed by Helen Takacs (P.O. Drawer CS, Mississippi State, MS 39762).
