SIGCIS 2009 Workshop

SIGCIS 2009 Workshop:
Michael Mahoney and the Histories of Computing

Sunday, October 18, 2009, Hilton Hotel, Pittsbugh, Pennsylvania

This was the inaugraual SIGCIS workshop and we had not quite settled into our routine of posting the CFP on a page and then adding the full program details to the same location as we progressed. However, we did post the full schedule, abstracts, and the full text of papers in the sessions with precirculation formats and these are all available from the links below.

Instructions to Particpants:

  • Please register with SHOT if you have not already done so. The costs of the workshop are included in the standard SHOT registration. If you are attending just the SIGCIS workshop and not any other part of the SHOT meeting there is a $30.00 registration fee, payable to SHOT.
  • Due to the large quantity of quality submissions we anticipate a full and exciting day. Therefore time limits on papers will be strictly enforced. Traditional paper presenters should plan to speak for 20 minutes and address questions from the SIGCIS community for 5-10 minutes. Participants in the dissertation and works-in-progress workshops will each have 5 to 10 minutes to introduce the material, leaving the bulk of time available for discussion. Dissertation and works-in-progress participants will also need to supply the draft for discussion by October 1, 2009 for inclusion in the electronic program for the workshop.
