        Subject: Mahoney Prize for a published article in history of computing/IT


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 US $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 Wednesday 15 April, 2015. For more 
information, please visit http://www.sigcis.org/mahoneyprize or contact
