Abstract : Communications between a human and a computer are of great significance to on-line operations afforded by time-sharing systems. However, the facility for direct and indirect communications between individual users and time-sharing systems object programs will expand the range of useful applications of such systems. This paper describes a number of applications being investigated in the ARPA-SDC time-sharing system that involve variations on group communication with a computer system and indicates operational design considerations necessary to implement such general communication capabilities in a timesharing system.
