Ramakrishnan at workshopchairs18 sigcomm. Nominations are limited to one doctoral dissertation per department. Nominated dissertations must have been successfully defended by the candidate, and the final version of a nominated dissertation must have been accepted by the candidate's academic unit.
An English-language version of the dissertation must be submitted with the nomination. In his new position, he will bring focus to our initiatives aimed at making the SIG more diverse and continue and expand the many initiatives that had been started in that area.
First and foremost we wish to reaffirm the SIG's commitment to ensuring that everyone in our community feels welcome and able to attend our events without fear of being subjected to unwanted solicitations of any kind.
In instances when such misconduct occurs, we are committed to bringing all available measures to bear. At the initiative of the previous EC and of members of our community, the SIG had put in place a very explicit policy against harassment and discrimination and requested that it be publicly highlighted at all our conferences.
This policy has now been replaced by a revised ACM policy that supersedes all individual SIG policies and is equally explicit in leaving no doubt that any instance of sexual harassment or discrimination will not be tolerated.
The new ACM policy offers explicit guidelines for handling and reporting such issues, and we will continue to require that those be publicly advertised at all our conferences.
The investigation of any reported violation and the enforcement of the applicable penalties is now also handled by ACM, which should ensure that consistent penalties are applied as warranted.
As was the case when the handling of penalties was internal to the SIG, the disclosure of those penalties remains a challenge, as there are obviously legal implications associated with any public or semi-public disclosure.
Neverthelesswe understand the need for some form of institutional memory to at the very least ensure that individuals found violating ACM policy are excluded from SIG activities in a manner consistent with their penalties.
We will work with ACM to develop appropriate mechanisms so that individuals with a need to know are made aware of those penalties, and therefore in a position to make informed decisions. Last but not least, we wanted to highlight initiatives which hopefully reinforce the SIG's focus on creating an environment that is welcoming to all.
As announced in the previous section, the SIG has added a new position of director for diversity and outreach on the EC. The position is intended to help us develop new initiatives for making our SIG more diverse, and equally important ensuring that we respect and nurture this diversity across all our events.
We are also exploring the possibility of creating a position of SIG's ombudsperson as yet another resource that individuals can turn to in addition to the usual channels; one that may be less intimidating for anyone with a potential complaint. Finally, there are several other initiatives taking place at the ACM level, in particular the new Code projectwhich seeks to update the ACM Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct that had been first adopted back in It is our hope that even if much progress still remains to be made, those many efforts will contribute to, if not eliminating instances of violations, at least make them rare and empower anyone who find themselves in such a situation.
If you have suggestions for other initiatives that could help us move forward in that direction, please let us know by emailing any member of the EC.
As in the previous issue, all the accepted technical papers have released their artifacts. These artifacts will help other researchers to improve the results published in CCR by easily comparing their new ideas with those described in the related work.Dedication This thesis is dedicated to: The sake of Allah, my Creator and my Master, The Role of Mother Tongue in Reception and Production of Collocations by Palestinian English Majors.
