Proceedings of the ASIS Workshop on Computer Composition.
Landau, Robert M., Ed.
The objectives of this workshop were: (1) To provide assistance in the exploration of the technological and related issues, which include the latest techniques, methods for employment, equipment and benefits to be obtained from the application of computer-controlled typesetting and photographic composition; (2) To provide an opportunity for representatives of the various interest groups to meet and discuss papers prepared in advance by the participants on the most important issues in this field and (3) To provide a record of the proceedings for the broader use by the scientific community. The 45 participants of this two-day conference are listed. The gathering provided a unique opportunity for invited industry leaders to discuss computer composition among themselves. The material is presented in chronological order. The paper by Arthur F. Gardiner, "The Future Isn't What it Used to Be" is considered the challenge paper. The eleven prepared papers are followed by a "Statement of Problem Areas." The panel discussions, summary of the workshop and a bibliography are included. The index is arranged so that what was said by whom on what subject can be easily located. (Author/NH)
