> The attached call for papers is for a special issue of the IEEE IT Professional magazine.  This issue seeks to provide an overview of significant contributions that the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has made to IT. We’re looking for high-quality contributions from industry, government, and businesses that are familiar with the work that NIST has undertaken over the last 40 years or so.  The 40 year number is not a hard deadline.  If there is a great paper for a technology from 60+ years ago, that would be considered.  The submission deadline is August 1, 2013.
>  
> Some past articles are found in NIST Special Publication 958, "A Century of Excellence in Measurements, Standards, and Technology - A Chronicle of Selected NBS/NIST Publications, 1901 - 2000".  The IT topics are very limited but include:
>  
> ASCII (started in the 1960s)
> DES (started in the 1970s)
> FORTRAN (started in the 1960s)
> IGES (started in the 1970s)
> SEAC (started in the late 1940s)
>  
> The first four topics in the above list were standardized by INCITS (X3).
>  
> My thought is that this would also be an opportunity to highlight significant INCITS standardization accomplishments where NIST has played a key role.  To that end, it would be great if this call could be distributed to the INCITS community.  Please forward this information to the INCITS community.
