3rd IFIP WG9.7 Working Conference on History of Nordic Computing, Stockholm 18 – 20 October 2010

 The Third IFIP WG 9.7 Working Conference on History of Nordic Computing will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, 18-20 October 2010. The first and second conferences on the history of Nordic computing, organized in Trondheim (2003) and Turku (2007) respectively, were very successful and acquired a great deal of interest from information and communication technology (ICT) professionals and academics as well as from historians of technology. Therefore, these conferences will now be followed by a third one, which will take place in Stockholm, October 2010. The conference will also honour the successful completion of a project on Swedish ICT history. Called “From Computing Machines to IT”, the Swedish Computer Society initiated the project with the support of the Division of History of Science and Technology at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the National Museum of Science and Technology.

The conference is organized as an activity within IFIP’s Working Group 9.7 (History of Computing) of its Technical Committee 9 (Relationship between Computers and Society). It is sponsored and organised jointly by the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences at Stockholm University and the Swedish Computer Society. Sponsorship is being sought also from Nordic private companies.
