The Jerusalem Conference on Information Technology (August, 1971). Proceedings.
Jerusalem Economic Conference (Israel).
The motivation for organizing the meeting was to search for ways to advance information technology in Israel and to explore avenues for its export. As a result of the very early introduction of electronic computers to Israel and the subsequent active use and development of computers by the government, commercial and educational sectors, Israel's experiences had exceeded those of most other small or developing countries. At the same time the problems encountered by Israel during the growth of its information technology and the uses to which its computer systems were put were similar to those of nations now considering use of information technology. The conference's sequence of invited presentations guaranteed that certain key issues affecting computer impact on development would be stated by experts. The six sessions of the conference considered the following subjects: (1) Technical Overview, (2) International Cooperation, (3) Management of Computer Resources, (4) Shared Resources, (5) Symposium - Education and (6) Symposium - Israel Computer Use and Development. This Proceedings is intended as a source document with which to begin active correspondence with the men and women put to use for the good of mankind. (Volume II is available as LI 003204).
