Automated International Information Networks; Systems Design Concepts, Goal-Setting and Priorities. FID/TM Panel at the ASIS Meeting in San Francisco, 2 October, 1969.
An invitation to participate in this panel discussion was sent to official representatives of organizations which had an expressed interest in information networks. Since some of the represented international bodies had started preliminary planning for network communication, the discussion was centered around systems design concepts. However, as some groups were still at a policy-making stage focus was also placed on goal-setting through formalized methods known as "the systems analysis approach." The panelists' comments on crude goal-setting and ranked priorities for systems design concepts are included as Appendices 3-7. The theme paper: "Systems Design Concepts for Automated International Information Networks," by K. Samuelson was circulated to all the panelists, this served to bring terminology consistency into the discussion. (NH)
