Dear all:

I want to draw your attention to the upcoming symposium on the "History of Informatics in Latin America and the Caribbean" and encourage you to consider submitting papers.  At present not much is published on the history of computing in Latin America and the Caribbean, but this symposium (and the growing number of scholars in this part of the world who are interested in computer history) suggests that this is starting to change.

The symposium is part of the Latin American Conference on Informatics, "the most important Latin American forum in which scientists, professionals and students exchange ideas and share the results of their investigations and experiences in information technology and communications." This is the first time that the conference has included a history track. The paper submission deadline is June 7, 2010.  Acceptance notifications will be sent out by August 9, 2010 and final papers are due September 6, 2010.

More information about the symposium is available here:

Please forward to others who might be interested.
