Issue No.11 - November (1978 vol.11)
This year COMPCON Fall was devoted for the first time almost wholly to a single theme, computer communications and networks. The attendance of 450 at three preconference tutorials and 935 at the three-day conference itself demonstrated the strong interest communications is arousing. The field is growing rapidly?one participant reported that his department had expanded from 20 to 120 in the past year?but the shortage of experienced personnel seems to be inhibiting the growth that some companies would like to see.
