The reality of national computer networking for higher education : proceedings of the 1978 EDUCOM fall conference by Educom( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contributors to this book present a comprehensive view of the current status, prospects, and problems of computer networking in higher education, examining networking from the perspectives of both computer users and network suppliers. In the opening chapter, William F. Miller discusses the role that computer networking is likely to play in higher education. He notes that a national network often can provide specialized services more cost-effectively than can individual institutions and is able to offer a wider variety of services than is available at any single computer center. In succeeding chapters, Ronald Segal reports the results of an extensive research project on networking that included the simulation of a national network serying higher education and research; Paul Heller describes the early experiences of the EDUNET network; and Robert Scott discusses important facets of the EDUNET Business Plan. In the concluding chapters, William Massy, Tad Pinkerton, and Barry Berman review conference workshops in three broad areas: policy issues in networking, facilitating services for networking, and network resources

Proceedings of the NREN Workshop, Monterey, California, September 16-18, 1992 by Inc., New York, NY Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A summary is presented of the deliberations of a workshop devoted to the National Research and Education Network (NREN). It also includes policy papers from 18 organizations that broadly represent NREN constituencies in government, education, and industry. The NREN is one of the major components of the High-Performance Computing Act of 1991 (Public Law 102-194). In the Act, Congress posed six questions about NREN policy, and asked for answers by December 1992. The workshop was held to develop informed commentary on the major issues of the congressional questions. Conclusions about the major issues that were widely shared are as follows: (1) the act and the program of the current administration are important first steps in network establishment; (2) the NREN should facilitate development of a national information infrastructure and provide tools for research and demonstrations of technology; (3) NREN should be a national network program supported by the communications infrastructure of the country; and (4) the NREN should be a truly national program with partners in industry, government, and higher education. Specific recommendations are made for policy questions, and other issues are developed. Two charts and four tables illustrate the discussion. Appendix A contains the 18 position papers from industry, universities, and interested bodies. Appendix B lists workshop participants. (SLD)

Further developing a theme that has characterized several recent educom conferences, the 1974 educom Fall Conference focused on "Computing and Networks in Higher Education." Included in the conference program were papers and discussions on approaches to solving the organizational and financial problems of networking used in both the United States and Canada. The specific topical sections were: (1) national computing policies, (2) integrating catv and computing instruction, (3) computers and the learning process, (4) networking for instruction, (5) management of systems and institutions, and (6) communication and innovation.

Proceedings of the educom 1974 Spring Conference are edited and collected under four topic headings related to questions of ever-tightening budgets and relationships between public institutions of higher education and state coordinating or governing boards. Aspects covered include the development of state-wide resources-sharing arrangements; the ways in which computing can be delivered; resource allocation within an institution; and computing for instruction. Addresses and papers are gathered into 21 subcategories of these four themes. Names and addresses of all conference participants are included in an appendix. (Sk)
