    The purpose of the workshop, held January 18–19, 1973, — to bring together persons from the two rather disjoint disciplines of Computer Architecture and Design and Implementation of Operating Systems — was achieved. It is fair to say that no more than one-half of the (62) attendees were known to any other attendee prior to the workshop. This is most uncommon for a workshop env... View full abstract»

    In this paper we attempt to define some of Jewel's needs for data collection and data communications and some of our approaches to satisfying these needs. In order to make this discussion meaningful, we first describe the company to the extent necessary to make our applications understandable. Then we discuss our data processing applications to indicate how we have solved some difficult problems. View full abstract»

    State-of-the-art design of communication networks is characterized by the ubiquitous appearance of computer technology. All significant message-switching systems designed in the last ten years have used stored program processor controlled switching. Sophisticated terminals are also using small computers, and are otherwise dominated by the use of digital electronics. The telecommunications technolo... View full abstract»

    The widespread use of minicomputers in widely diverse applications has resulted in the need for many peripheral devices to allow user communication with the machine. Data passing from the computer to the operator may be in the form of paper tape, punch cards, line printer listing, voice output, and video display to name but a few. Many applications require that the computer output be in a “... View full abstract»
