Mahoney Prize

SIGCIS is happy to announce the inaugural call for submissions for the Mahoney Prize, a new article prize in the history of computing and information technology, broadly conceived.
Call for submissions at http://www.sigcis.org/mahoneyprize
 The deadline for submission is April 15, 2015.

The Mahoney Prize recognizes an outstanding article in the history of computing and information technology, broadly conceived. The Mahoney Prize commemorates the late Princeton scholar Michael S. Mahoney, whose profound contributions to the history of computing came from his many articles and book chapters. The prize consists of a $500 award and a certificate. For the inaugural 2015 prize, articles published in the preceding three years (2012, 2013, and 2014) are eligible for nomination. The Mahoney Prize is awarded by the Special Interest Group in Computers, Information, and Society (SIGCIS) and is presented during the annual meeting of our parent group, the Society for the History of Technology.

The deadline for submission (electronic submissions preferred) to all three Prize Committee members is April 15, 2015. For more information, please contact the 2015 Mahoney Prize Committee Chair Prof. Jennifer Light, jslight@mit.edu.
