Parker, Lorne A., Comp.; Riccomini, Betsy, Comp.
The aim of the conference on University Applications of Satellite/Cable Technology was to stimulate discussion among universities, industry, and government on the possibilities of satellite and cable technology in the future. Twenty-six presentations were made covering the following topics: the current status of satellite/cable technology; the needs of higher education, public service, and research which can be met by communications technology; the role of government in satellite/cable communications; the economics of satellite/cable systems; and designs and innovations in communications technology. Nine of the articles describe specific experiments and demonstration projects in satellite/cable communications in higher education. (CH)
