The ACM History Committee is holding an ACM SIG Heritage Workshop at the Charles Babbage Institute, University of Minnesota (Minneapolis) on May 20-21, 2019 to educate, assist, and build community for those involved with ACM SIG archiving or other documentation/history projects (such as oral history), or those with ideas/plans for a future project.

The SIG Heritage Workshop program will explore ACM Records, will focus on best practices in paper and digital archiving, and will include short presentations/discussion by participants. The ACM will provide travel support (air, lodging, meals) for accepted applicants.

Example Projects from SIGGRAPH

SIGGRAPH Project examples include a large ongoing digital preservation project with its (Annual Conference’s) Art Show Archives, and smaller projects to collect and scan all (non-born digital) Conference Course Notes, and record major awardees (Coons Award) discussing their work. In addition, the SIGGRAPH Pioneers group, led by Mary Whitton and Joan Collins have initiated major archiving efforts in conjunction with the Charles Babbage Institute Archives.
