Abstract : The Distributed Object Computation Testbed (DOCT) has two principal goals: the demonstration of an object computation environment that supports distributed processing of large archived data sets and the demonstration of support for electronic submission and processing of complex documents and patent applications for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The infrastructure that is being integrated to create this testbed includes archival storage systems, databases, an object computation system, document management systems, and intelligent agents that support the patent application workflow. The resulting technologies should also apply to the information needs of other agencies, such as the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Department of Energy, and the Department of Defense.
