SIGCSE celebrates the 50th anniversary of its founding in 2018, an event that will be celebrated throughout the year. In 1968, a group of computing educators met at the Fall Joint Computer Conference (FJCC) in Las Vegas to write and sign a petition that eventually led to the creation of SIGCSE. Elliot Irving Organick (1925 -- 1985) is credited with being the driving force behind the group.
