ACCA Working Groups and Special Interest Groups

ACCA members often propose exploring research areas or other special interest areas by forming Working Groups. These advance a specific cloud computing or data issue, and often works to develop a specific work product such as a white paper or report, or engage long-term in a broader issue in a Special Interest Group (SIG). The below is a list of the ACCA’s WGs and SIGs and leadership through the years.
