Dr. Tao Xie, associate professor of computer science at NC State University, has been named an Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Distinguished Speaker.
The ACM Distinguished Speaker Program (DSP) is an outreach program of ACM that brings distinguished speakers from academia, industry, and government to give presentations to ACM chapters, members, and the greater IT community in a variety of venues and formats. DSP has always operated in the spirit of service and outreach. Its goals are to provide some of the best content ACM has to offer through its network of high quality speakers and to facilitate professional networking.
The DSP Committee votes on the acceptability of a nominated speaker based on his or her CV and most recent three years' talks/speeches/short courses/presentations. Additionally, speakers must have a minimum of five years experience (either in academia or industry or a combination of both).
