Abstract : This document describes the InfoMall concept, how it is employed by Northeast Parallel Architectures Center (NPAC) as a technology transfer program, and how it could be used by Rome Laboratory and by the United States Air Force Materiel Command (US AFMC). A description of the Electronic InfoMall" system, built on the World Wide Web (WWW) as a pilot project for Rome Laboratory, is also given as are experiences building WWW systems for academia, commerce, and industry. It should be emphasized that this document is primarily a description of the potential uses of the InfoMall concept and the human interactive processes involved in InfoMall, and is not primarily about the HPCC technologies that make the InfoMall process work. These technologies are well described elsewhere, although we summarize their main features in this document.
