CALL FOR PAPERS

Michael Mahoney And The Histories of Computing(s)

SIGCIS History of Computing Workshop in Memory of Michael S. Mahoney

Sunday, October 18, 2009, Hilton Hotel, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

The Society for the History of Technology's Special Interest Group for 
Computers, Information and Society (SIGCIS - www.sigcis.org) welcomes 
submissions for "Michael Mahoney And The Histories of Computing(s)," a 
daylong workshop on the history of computing in memory of historian 
Michael S. Mahoney. In keeping with Mahoney's broad historical 
perspective, we encourage submissions not only about computers 
themselves but also about the technologies and knowledge systems into 
which computers have been embedded as well as the societies in which 
they are used. Contributions directly related to Mahoney's work are 
welcome but not required.

The keynote speaker, William Aspray, will discuss Mahoney's contribution 
to the development of the history of computing.

The workshop will be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA on Sunday, 
October 18, 2009. It will occur on the final day of the annual SHOT 
meeting with sessions in the morning and afternoon.

SHOT has reserved that day for SIG events and therefore the workshop 
will not overlap scheduled sessions and most other SHOT functions. It 
will be held at the same site as the SHOT meeting.

SIGCIS encourages scholars of all levels and affiliations to participate.

Organized sessions and individual papers are both welcome. In keeping 
with the conference theme contributions that address historiographic 
issues or situate work within a particular history of computing are 
particularly welcome. Individual contributions can fit one of a variety 
of formats.

1. Traditional 20 to 25-minute presentations followed by a question and 
answer session with the SIGCIS community. In this case a one-page 
abstract (maximum 400 words) will be reviewed and included in the 
electronic conference program. Abstracts should address the paper's 
topic, argument, evidence used, and contribution to the existing 
literature. A full version of the paper should be sent to the session 
commentator at least a week prior to the meeting.

2. Dissertation proposals. We hope to include a dissertations in 
progress session, in which individuals will present their ongoing 
dissertation work and seek feedback from the history of computing 
community. In this case submit an abstract of your dissertation 
proposal. The full proposal will be included in the electronic 
conference program if accepted. Participants will be encouraged to read 
this prior to the session. You will have five to ten minutes to 
introduce the material, leaving the bulk of time available for discussion.

3. Works in progress. This is your chance to receive informal and expert 
discussion of draft dissertation chapters, journal articles, or book 
chapters. Submit a one-page abstract (maximum 400 words) including 
discussion of the current state of the work and any specific kinds of 
feedback you are seeking. If your proposal is accepted you will need to 
supply the draft for discussion by 1 October for inclusion in the 
electronic program for the workshop. You will have five to ten minutes 
to introduce the material, leaving the bulk of time available for 
discussion.

4. Proposals in other formats are also welcome. For example round table 
discussions, demonstrations of software of interest to historians of 
computing, or "author meets critics" sessions.

SHOT presenters are encouraged to apply but must present material 
significantly different from that presented in the main conference program.

Submission Procedures

Individual submissions should be made at 
http://www.sigcis.org/?q=workshop09a, and must include:

    1. an abstract or dissertation proposal as described above. Paste 
this text into the web submission form.

titles of the presenters, organizer, chair and commentator (if applicable)

    2. a one-page description (maximum 400 words) of the session that

    3. an abstract for each presenter in the form described above

    4. for the each presenter and other participants (including
