Abstract : The report describes the research results of the Concomp Project: Research in the Conversational Use of Computers, for the period 1 July to December 1968. Topics include: modifications to the IBM 360/67 central computing facility; expansions of the Data Concentrator (the programmable data communications interface to the 360/67 designed and constructed at the University of Michigan); implementation of the Touch-Tone telephone as a general terminal using the audio response unit; further developments of MAD/1; the development of display file routines for use in communicating between the DEC 338 and the IBM 360/67; and the development of a General Network Service System (GENESES) to provide a framework (both theoretical and practical) within which various network types--queueing networks, electrical networks, flow networks, etc.--may be described and analyzed graphically in a conversational manner.
