[SIGCIS-Members] Call for "paper"

…just wanted to add that I made the very same experience when studying electrical engineering in the mid 1980’s at RWTH Aachen in Germany. I also vaguely remember that one of the written exams had to be done by ‚pen and paper‘ programming. 
So I wonder how long this method was practiced and how long the period of retention for written exams lasts in Germany — but with a little luck you may find materials from generations of students in the examination office’s archives of technical universities… ;-)

Best, Claus
