Summary of Remarks at EDUCOM Fall Conference 1973.
The Chemistry Department at the University of California, San Diego, has 35 members, 20 of whom are experimentalists with either computers or plans to acquire one. Within the department there are turn-key systems connected to mini-computers or the department computer, an IBM 1800. There is little control over computers in the department and little standardization. The campus computer center is in debt, and there is political pressure to make greater use of this center. With a short supply of research dollars, it is important to utilize local existing facilities to the greatest extent efficiency allows. The objectives to be achieved are to promote the innovative use of computers in chemistry, to enhance turn-key systems to greater capabilities, to provide a consistent level of systems support--both with hardware and software, and to utilize the campus computer center whenever possible.
