This paper is a short introduction to computerized conferencing and the first in a series of documents prepared by IIASA's Survey Project with the cooperation of the Computer Services Department on the topic of using IIASA's computer to communicate. Unlike others in the series, this paper is not a cookbook on its subject, but rather an overview for people unfamiliar with the technology. It presents computerized conferencing's main characteristics, a few representative applications and basic references. For specific details on how to use computerized conferencing facilities, we refer the reader to other papers in this series, to Computer Services or to the author.
