This series finds its roots in the ACM Future of Computing Academy, of which Neha and Akhil are a part, and is committed to creating spaces for conversations around computing and social impact to cross sub-disciplines within computing, while honoring perspectives from other disciplines, such as science and technology studies (STS), anthropology, development studies, design, public health, and others. We are grateful to have had organizing help from Pranjal Jain, Shubham Atreja, and Neil Gaikwad in the past. We also welcome others to join in and organize an event based on their areas of interest, as did Kurtis Heimerl in December 2020. Please write to us if you are so inclined!
