> CFP: Special Issue of Personal & Ubiquitous Computing on Histories of Ubicomp
> Editors: Jofish Kaye, Yahoo Labs, and Molly Wright Steenson, University of Wisconsin-Madison
> As ubiquitous computing has grown as a field, so too have the narratives around both ubicomp’s origins and how those origins impact its futures. In this special issue of Personal & Ubiquitous Computing, we seek to articulate those multiple voices and histories reflecting these multiple origins, each of which has a story to tell about the history of ubiquitous computing. These histories reside in multiple fields, from computer science and informatics, to history of science and STS, to design and urban planning—to name a few—as well as ubicomp’s new instantiations, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), smart cities, the architecture of the cloud, and mobile computing. 
> For this special issue, topics include but are not limited to:
> Histories of ubiquitous computing technologies
> Studies and histories of corporations, individuals and organizations influential in the growth of ubiquitous computing
> The influence of ubiquitous computing technologies
> Studies of networks of ubicomp researchers
> Comparative, historical studies of ubicomp applications & environments
> Lesser known players in the field of ubicomp
> Histories of information environments
> Ubicomp in architecture and urbanism
> Ubicomp and user experience
> Ubicomp and art 
> Ubicomp and critical design 
> Ubicomp and cybernetics
> Ubicomp, gender and diversity
