Activities & Events

The main SIGCIS activities in recent years have been centered around the annual meetings of the Society for the History of Technology (SHOT) and related associations in Science and Technology Studies (STS) and Business History fields.

The first SIGCIS Workshop took place in 2009, on the final day of the SHOT Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh. Ever since, the SIGCIS Workshop has been a fixture of the Sunday SHOT program. In 2016, SIGCIS held its first meeting that was not co-located with the SHOT annual meeting: this was the Command Lines conference hosted and sponsored by the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.
