Ethics and Values in the ACM Awards Program

Vicki L. Hanson

Over the years, ACM has thoughtfully crafted a Code of Ethics (the Code)a and a set of Core Valuesb to guide what we as ACM members consider appropriate conduct as computing professionals. Across all aspects of ACM programs, these ethics and values should influence our actions, choices, and processes. With this in mind, I would like to share information about the new Policy for Honors Conferred by ACMc (Honors Policy).

This Honors Policy and its associated proceduresd have taken into account ACM's ethics and values to address two overarching issues with respect to awards: First, awards will not be given to individuals currently under sanction for violation of ACM policies. Second, the awards procedures now address revocation of an award.
