Statement regarding recent US travel restrictions How can we overcome this attack on openness and inclusiveness?

By   February 2, 2017

The SIGLOG Executive Committee shares the concern of our parent organization, ACM and of other ACM Special Interest Groups about the Executive Order that has led to travel restrictions for citizens from a list of seven countries. We view these restrictions as obstacles to scientific activity and as attacks on the openness and inclusiveness that are essential to the proper functioning of a scientific community. Let us assure all our members that we will find ways to function as a scientific community without sacrificing our basic principles. We welcome input and suggestions from the members of the community.
