Hello everyone - 

With our annual SIGCIS Workshop less than 2 weeks away (on Sunday November 9), I would like to draw your attention to updates to the Workshop program at http://www.sigcis.org/workshop14.  

We have posted papers for the two “Works in Progress” sessions - the first from 11-12:30, and the second from 4:30-6.  For these sessions to succeed, we now need those of you who plan to attend these sessions to read the papers (linked from the program at http://www.sigcis.org/workshop14) and come ready to discuss them with the authors.  The authors will have only 5 minutes to introduce and frame their work, so it is really important that the audience does its homework.  This year our “homework” actually haas the feel of required reading for the future of our field: we have a fascinating variety of papers on subjects such as women in computing, computer literacy education, technology transfer, the IT workforce, and information visualization.  Even if you cannot join us in Dearborn, you will learn a lot from these papers - and I am sure that the authors would appreciate receiving comments or suggestions by email.

As always, please let me know if you have questions about the workshop.  

Related, you can find the program for the entire SHOT conference at http://www.historyoftechnology.org/media/dearborn/2014_SHOT_Program.pdf.  It is exciting to see so many papers and sessions that deal with computers, information, and society!

All the best,

Andy Russell
Chair, SIGCIS 2014 Workshop
