As a result of meetings with Computer Institutions in Hungary and Czechoslovakia, it has become clear that there exists a concrete opportunity to establish the basis of a Computer Network available as a direct communication resource to IIASA Scientists.

That there is a need for Data Communication facilities has become increasingly obvious, as a direct result of the difficulties experienced in exchanging information between IIASA and the NMOs, and between the NMOs themselves.

In accordance with the aims of the project to improve and facilitate cooperation between IIASA and Home Institutions a proposal for a preliminary computer network has been drawn~ up, which will enable IIASA projects to make pilot studies in cooperation with remote centres. It will also provide the necessary experience to expand and improve such communication. The latter is important to the decentralization of IIASA research and to the widening of its sphere of influence.

The proposal is one for joint participation with the Computer and Automation Institute in Budapest, and the United Nations Computing Research Centre in Bratislava. The costs would be shared equally between all three participants, and each would supply computer time and the necessary man power.
