Member Contributions - About

The Special Interest Group for Computing, Information, and Society (SIGCIS) serves as a foundation for the community development efforts of the evolution of computing technologies and their applications. The discipline as a whole is enriched when scholars share their work with their colleagues. In aid of this goal, SIGCIS invites members to submit their written work to the Member Contributions section of the SIGCIS website.

The Member Contributions area is intended to be a place for historians of computing to post work that they have done that falls in between the traditional categories of a comment and a journal article. Such contributions might be conference presentations that are not destined for publication in their current form, but you feel merit broader consideration. Works in progress are also welcome.

Though not peer reviewed, Member Contributions should meet normal academic standards for rigor and factual accuracy. SIGCIS does not claim copyright over these items and will not attempt to restrict subsequent publication of this material elsewhere. However, please do not submit works to which you no longer hold the copyright (e.g. articles published in journals) without permission of the copyright holder.

If you have material you would like to be included in the Member Contributions series on the SIGCIS website please contact the SIGCIS Secretary using the email address The preferred submission format is an Adobe PDF file. Include an abstract of no more than 200 words. Accepted submissions will receive a serial number in the format SIGCIS_MC_1234 and will be added to the SIGCIS website.
