In addition to the venues already mentioned, I would also add the events and associated special journal issues organized by the Commission for the History and Philosophy of Computing (HAPOC): http://hapoc.org

A technical computer science history would certainly be in scope there. The commission organizes regular conferences on history of computing and symposia on history of programming and there is a typically special journal issue for full papers after the events.

The next one is a Symposium on the History and Philosophy of Programming, which happens to have a deadline for submissions of extended abstracts on 18 March: https://www.shift-society.org/hapop5/

Subject: [SIGCIS-Members] Venues for technical history?

I'm interested in writing on technical computer science history topics (e.g. programming language history) and I'm trying to identify venues for short-form/article length publications. The focus would be on the engineering decisions and impact, rather than the social or business impact, which I understand is "out of scope" for many of the typical historical journals.

Does this community have any recommendations?
