On May 20, 1970, a one-day seminar was held for Congressional members and staff. The papers given at this seminar and included in the proceedings are: (1) "Understanding Information Systems" by J. D. Aron, (2) "Computer Applications in Political Science" by Kenneth Janda, (3) "Who's the Master of Your Information System?" by Marvin Kornbluh, (4) "Communications and Future Information Systems" by Louis Feldner, (5) "Communications, Computers and the Enhancement of Social Intelligence" by Andrew J. Lipinski, and (6) "Managing the Machine Society" by Robert L. Chartrand. The papers purposely covered a wide range of topics related to information systems--their use, their promises and their problems. The purpose of the seminar was to start an expanding dialogue between Congress and the computing and information system professions. Short biographical sketches of the speakers are appended. (NH)
