Abstract : The following test was undertaken to develop a more comprehensive understanding of the procedural issues and data structure issues surrounding a conference-floor data interchange undertaken by DATA DEVELOPMENT and the CTN at the CALS EXPO '90 in Dallas, Texas. Previous experiences with CALS data outside the CTN arena suggested that DATA DEVELOPMENT was CALS ready. A sample technical publications tape generated by DATA DEVELOPMENT was brought over to the CTN booth at CALS EXPO '90 for a 'walk-in' evaluation. The 'walk-in' test produced unexpected results. For reasons not immediately apparent, the majority of the data were not being transferred successfully. Since the hardware platform and the show environment was somewhat less than optimum for conducting an in-depth test, it was decided that a more comprehensive test should be undertaken on the CTN Raster Test Bed at the CTNO/LLNL. Since the CALS initiative is intended to develop a system independent data interchange strategy, a very important aspect of the test was to determine the reason why some systems were apparently able to interpret the transfer data and other systems were not.
