Wedemeyer, Dan J., Ed.
These 40 papers were selected on the basis of their contribution to building an effective knowledge base for professionals facing the Pacific telecommunications challenge. A foreword, a list of conference organizations and sponsors, and 13 session summaries precede the papers, which are organized generally by topic: (1) local and national development needs: infrastructures, satellites, and terrestrial facilities (business applications, user needs for telecommunications and communication infrastructure, including political and social and economic aspects); (2) Pacific regional and international infrastructure, satellite and surface systems (business requirements, user needs in the Pacific, institutional infrastructures and constraints in the Pacific, and Pacific satellite/terrestrial systems); (3) international systems and problems (geostationary arc, transborder data flow, information technology transfer and evolution of telecommunications policy in industrialized, Pacific-basin countries, international telecommunications standards, and the Johoka Shakai/information society). Most papers include abstracts and references. (LMM)
