ACM History Committee

This project is developing resources and providing support and training for SIG Historians to document and preserve the activities, artifacts, and archives of their SIGs. 

The first event the History Committee organized to specifically target “SIG historians” was the workshop in May 2019 ( and described in this blog entry.

Attendees included representatives of 11 different SIGs, 6 History Committee members, 2 fellowship winners, 2 others with project responsibility and 2 Babbage staff.  As follow-up, the subcommittee is developing a white paper to outline next steps in the SIG Heritage project, including a resource website using WordPress and the ACM theme.
