ACM has launched a new series, ACM Books, aimed at filling the need for outstanding computer science books. It will complement other recent additions to scientific publications, but will present its computing topics in far greater depth and detail, and address areas not covered by monographs or papers from other publishers. The books, to be published beginning in the first half of 2014, will also be available on multiple devices including mobile applications, and in print format. 

All of the titles will be accessible from the ACM Digital Library and available from ACM partner Morgan & Claypool as well as a wide range of commercial e-book platforms including Amazon, iBooks, and Barnes & Noble. The books will use a digital-first model to appeal to the growing computing community, including authors, researchers, practitioners, educators, and students. 

M. Tamer Özsu is Editor-in-Chief of the ACM Books Series. He will be aided by an international Editorial Board of computing luminaries from prestigious institutions of higher learning, who represent major subject areas in computer science and engineering. As topic editors, they will review all proposals relevant to their respective fields. Authors interested in submitting proposals should visit the Authors page for publishing process, policy, and promotion.
