  1. Interactions of ACM
    interactions is a magazine intended for professionals interested in the connections between experiences, people and technology. The human-built world can afford a sense of beauty, sublimity, and resonance, and through our advancements in technology can come advances in society. At the center of these advances are interactions —conversations, connections, collaborations, and relationships — within and across multiple disciplines, with and without technology. This magazine includes timely articles, stories, and content related to these interactions.
  2. Interfaces
