Computerized Conferencing and Communications Center Reports

The Electronic Information Exchange System (EIES) is a particular design of a computerized conferencing system intended to allow both the facilitation of scientific and technical communications and experimentation and research into human information-communication processes. To meet the first objective EIES offers functional components of messaging, conferencing, notebooks and bulletins for its users. To meet the second objective EIES allows for the tailoring of interfaces by individuals and groups, and the incorporation of special processing and interconnect options to other computer and information systems.

EIES is designed as a research tool or laboratory without walls in order to allow information scientists ...

Computerized Conferencing and Communications Center Reports

This booklet is an introduction to the use of EIES, Electronic Information Exchange System. EIES (pronounced "eyes") is a very powerful computerized system that allows you to communicate with others on the system in a number of different ways. The intent of this booklet is to teach you the simpler parts of the system and to make you comfortable with using the one-page User's Guide For Electronic Information Exchange System. Later on, as you gain more experience with EIES, you may want to learn some of the more advanced features and tricks. EIES has been designed so that you ...


Programming Language Requirements For Human Communication Structures Or Computer Conferencing, Computerized Conferencing & Communications Center, Peter Gordon Anderson Jan 1977

Programming Language Requirements For Human Communication Structures Or Computer Conferencing, Computerized Conferencing & Communications Center, Peter Gordon Anderson

Computerized Conferencing and Communications Center Reports

Our overall goal is to be able, simply and quickly, to construct computer conferencing systems for new requirements, applications, and even experimental ideas or fantasies. One way to view this requirement is as the creation of a highly parameterized conferencing system itself. Our view, however, is that of a programming language; i.e., an integrated notational system for the specification of communication structures and the associated actions or computation to be taken by the computer system hosting the structure.

A communication structure consists of a group of people (and storage devices) each endowed with some characteristics, and some means of ...
