May 2008 Conference Call
History Committee Conference Call, May 22, 2008, 4:00-5:10 PM Eastern Time
Participants: Mary Hall, Carol Hutchins, Mike Mahoney, Len Shustek, Rick Snodgrass,
and David S. Wise
- SIG Issues
Mary reported on various activities, including
- There were some questions from SIGMicro about how to do interviews. The nascent
(and as yet incomplete) SIG FAQ should address these.
- There were some emails about a SIGUCCS history project.
We chose some interviewers to contact.
We went through many of the action items and discussed them, closing
most of them.
A few of note.
- Given the SHOT Award, in cooperation with CHM, there is no need for a separate
ACM History Award.
- Mike will check with the editorial board about any additional interactions with ACM,
such as putting this journal on the member signup.
Dates for future CCs.
We agreed to finalize the following fall dates and consider the following spring dates.
Oct 16 but likely to be replaced by face2face.
November 20 late because of PubsBd slosh
