The Special Interest Group for Computing, Information, and Society (SIGCIS)
serves as a foundation for the community development efforts within the
history of computing. 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 site.
The Member Contributions area is intended to be a place for historians of
computing to post work that does not fit into traditional categories such as
the book or published journal article. Technical report series and similar
online venues are common in the sciences but rare in historical disciplines.
Member Contributions could include the following:

. Conference presentations that are not destined for publication in their
current form, but you feel merit broader consideration.  
. Works in progress, such as the drafts of book chapters or articles. 
. Material too lengthy or detailed to be included within a journal
publication, such as one finds in traditional technical report series.
. Masters' or Ph.D. theses.
. Review essays, reports on conferences or exhibitions, etc.

Though not peer reviewed, Member Contributions should meet normal academic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 secretary at sigcis.org. 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.
