Mai, Karen Ah
A special subconference on Computer Networks featured a number of status reports from institutions represented at the planning meeting. Among the topics discussed were: the possibility of connecting the ARPA network to Pacific network nodes, the use of satellites for international data transmission, the implications of the broadcast mode of transmission, and the distinction between "experimental" and "operational" status. An interim organization for the distribution of information and reports relating to the Pacific experiment was also established. (SK)
