Abstract

A discussion is currently under way at IIASA about the most promising uses for the computer communication network now being developed here. This paper is a contribution to that discussion. As such, it proposes a new form of computer-mediated group interaction intended to assist geographically scattered groups of scientists in performing truly collaborative research. We shall refer to such interaction as CAITR (Computer Assistance for International Team Research). CAITR does not yet exist, but its components do (hardware and software, team research strategies, etc.). In the author's opinion, IIASA has a unique opportunity to assemble these components into a new research tool of value not only for IIASA and its collaborators but for the world scientific community as a whole.
