Women in Computing History

In keeping with the tradition of documenting women's history through oral histories, the Women in (the) Computing History mailing list hopes to augment traditional resources of women's history and histories of computing by being a repository for women's own stories throughout the history of computing. The mailing list wishes to include all women in computing, not just those formally schooled in the computing sciences. To subscribe to Women in (the) Computing History, send an e-mail to:

witch-request @ niestu.com and insert in the subject line of the menage: subscribe.

Pioneer lady at the 1996 IFIP World Computer Congress

The second Pioneer Day of the 1996 IFIP World Computer Congress was held at the National Convention Center in Canberra, Australia, on Sept. 6, 1996. Pioneer Day celebrations were initiated at the Hamburg World Computer Congress in 1994 following the establishment of Working Group 9.7 (History of Computing), whose scope of work includes the planning for each biannual Pioneer Day. Though unwritten, the intent of these Pioneer Days at the World Computer Congresses is to provide an opportunity for the sponsoring national computer society to recognize and honor local pioneers.
