Abstract

The Happenings department reports on events -- past, present, and future -- that are of particular interest to the history of computing. Of primary importance are recent meetings that are of historical significance. Few meetings concentrate solely on history, but many contain sessions that can be recorded in this department. Organizers of historical sessions and meetings are urged to appoint a person with the specific responsibility of writing a report and submitting it to this department. They are further encouraged to tape-record sessions and to create a photographic record that can be deposited with one of the computer archival establishments, such as the Charles Babbage Institute, the Computer Museum, or the Smithsonian Institution. Conference planners are specifically referred to Appendix B, Conference Organization, in ";History of Programming Languages";[Richard L. Wexelblat (ed., Academic Press, New York, 1981], for a description of the preliminary steps that may be taken to obtain and record historical materials presented in a conference setting. This department will also present news and notices of forthcoming activities that are of historical value. These may include conferences, exhibits, projects, awards, publications, and general memorabilia. Contributions should consist of a brief description of the activity, highlighting its specific relevance. Finally, this department will contain citations of prominent dates in the history of computing. Readers are welcome to submit suggestions. These must include the day, month, and year of the event, and should be accompanied by a statement of the source used for verification.
