Open Access to ACM Digital Library During Coronavirus Pandemic Comrade 03/31/2020 (Tue) 07:07:15 No. 680
https://www.acm.org/articles/bulletins/2020/march/dl-access-during-covid-19 > Dear ACM Members: > > As the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic continues, we at ACM would like to do what we can to help support the computing community. Many computing researchers and practitioners are now working remotely. In addition, teaching and learning have also moved online as more and more campuses close. > > We believe that ACM can help support research, discovery and learning during this time of crisis by opening the ACM Digital Library to all. For the next three months, there will be no fees assessed for accessing or downloading work published by ACM. We hope this will help researchers, practitioners and students maintain access to our publications as well as increasing visibility and awareness of ACM’s journals, proceedings and magazines. Please be sure to inform your colleagues that the ACM DL is now open, and will continue that way through June 30, 2020. > > This global health crisis is a unique challenge that has impacted many ACM members. We would like to express our concern and support for all who are affected by this outbreak. > > Stay well! > > Cherri Pancake > ACM President
>>680 I don't even know what that is, OP.
>>702 You can download research papers for free.
>>702 Knowledge commons.
Lol I was just IP banned from them this morning.
>>736 Seems like I'm unbanned as of now, don't use a script to get shit as they cut you off after around a gigabyte...
Don't know about you all, but I'm not wasting the opportunity. Wholesale grabbed 2 of the 5 conferences relevant to my interests, and most of the 3rd done before the throttling. libgen has mere unsorted scraps from burger conferences, international ones under ETAPS are reprinted by Springer (under the "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" series) and have mostly made it to libgen already.
Reminder that this is still going on.
>>887 Not only has it been the majority of my web activity in the last week, I feel asleep at my desk reading papers twice already. Going to start picking through the journals and books today since I'm done archiving the conference proceedings I care about.
>>743 What conferences do you grab? What conferences would you recommend to someone who is a beginner to computer science.

>>1195 Not that anon and not conferences, but I recommend the ACM Computing Surveys journal: https://dl.acm.org/journal/csur Surveys review the relevant papers around a topic or problem, looking at the current state of the art. Finding one for the problem you are interested in is like hitting the jackpot. It won't be very detailed and you might not understand everything, but it will give you a pretty good view of what is happening around the topic and what to read next.
>>1195 Operating systems, compilers and lower level stuff makes me hard so: CGO, PLDI, POPL, PLOS, SOSP, and ISMM conferences. (OSDI is slim pickings so you gotta get them from usenix) For journals I just kinda picked through JACM, TOCS and TOPLAS >>1196 It's on my todo list, it would be worthless on libgen as you really do need the filters to find what you want.
>>1206 You can search libgen by DOI or title. I usually find the articles I am interested in through other means and only go to libgen to download them.
If you are new to scientific research, this paper describes a good method to find your way through the endless papers available. I have made good of this technique during my student years. How to read a paper by S. Keshav https://dl.acm.org/doi/10.1145/1273445.1273458
>>1196 Thank you anon! This post was very helpful, and exactly what I needed. A 50,000 foot view of these topics since I'm such a novice to computer science. Have a Marxist Maru

>>1909 Hence why I'm taking everything I possibly have a use for, I never want to deal with them. Got ~8k (16GB) files last month, I wonder if I can top that in June?
last month, hopefully you have most of what you want already.
>>2084 I still have no clue what the hype in this thread is supposed to be all about.
>>703 You’ve always been able to do that using sci hun
>>2104 *sci hub
>>2090 Lots of good food for thought, depending on your interests. Generally, not really stuff for your typical tech enthusiasts. >>2104 >>2105 A lot of this stuff isn't on there... yet anyway. That being said, I'm sure plenty of goodies have been siphoned off by now.
Last day!
>>3000 I finished getting what I need\want last week. Archived the following conferences in their entirety: CCS, CGO, ICFP, ISCA, ISMM, MICRO, OSDI, PLDI, PLOS, POPL, SDE, SOSP, UIST, VEE.
Anything on there relevant to planning an economy the size of North Korea? (Asking for a friend.)
>>3013 No, its a computer\technology association... Not that it matters, it will be too late for you to look after today.
>>3014 >its a computer\technology association I figured that much from the OP. I don't expect them to have stuff explicitly proposing things for socialism. But if they have stuff on scheduling things in a big company…?
>>3013 They should have linear programming, (mathematics) optimizations, etc.
