Abstract : Computer conferencing is a more powerful communication medium than electronic mail. The important difference is that computer conferencing provides structuring facilities on the data base of text documents, by putting text items into conferences and sub-discussions within a conference. This structuring will be essential to allow users to control and order the larger information flow which will occur in the future. A computerized teleconferencing system can be seen as being halfway between a conference and a very rapidly published newsletter. A typical user sits at his terminal once or twice a day.
