Introduction and Summary
Four parallel workshops were held in conjunction with the Symposium on the second and fourth days, two hours each afternoon. The purpose of these four workshops was to provide opportunity for all participants to talk informally in small groups and to answer the same general questions: Computers and new display technology are changing the human operator’s role toward that of a monitor or supervisor. What is, or what should be, the nature of this new role ? In view of this new role, what should be the priorities for research ? What implementation problems are foreseen ? What new institutional or interdisciplinary arrangements are advisable ? On the fifth and final afternoon the chairmen of the four workshop groups gave reports of their groups’ deliberations and recommendations, and a plenary discussion was held.
