Hazan of the Singer Company as well as other active Washington area Computer Society members. Welcoming remarks were given by Dr. Ruth M.

The keynote address, "Minicomputers – A Challenge in the 70's", was presented by Kenneth Olsen, President of the Digital Equipment Corporation. Speakers and panel members were chosen to represent a broad perspective of the field.
