Simulation and Gaming Project for Inter-Institutional Computer Networking. Volume I.
Emery, James C.; And Others
The Simulation and Gaming Project for Inter-Institutional Computer Networking is a joint effort on the part of EDUCOM and 18 participating institutions to investigate the role that computing networks might play in higher education and research. Central to the project is the development of a computer simulation model of a possible national network, composed of the participating institutions, in which services can be exchanged through a market medium. This is a report on the results of the first year of the three year study. Included in this phase were the development of representational concepts, the design and implementation of the basic simulation model, the collection of data from the participating institutions, and the conduct of some preliminary experiments using the model. Later emphasis will be on using the model for a comprehensive investigation into the organizational implications of a network, the conditions necessary for a successful network, and the likely problem areas that must be monitored.
