Issue No. 01 - January (1978 vol. 11)
A. van Dam , Brown University
This issue of Computer is based on two workshops in distributed processing held at Brown University August 17-19, 1976, and August 3-5, 1977. Sponsored by the Army Research Office, the National Science Foundation, and the Office of Naval Research, the workshops attempted to define what distributed processing means and to develop a taxonomy of distributed processing applications and techniques. Achievements to date and outstanding research problems were examined in an attempt to find either commonality of problems and solutions or substantial differences.
