PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
On September
19and
20 I
attended
a
DECUS
European Seminarin Edinburgh,
Scotland.
I am happy to
report
that the
meeting
was
considered
a success
by
all.
There
were
about
150atten
dees,
with
liberal
representation
by
DEC.
John
Oldfield,
the
Arrangements
Chairman, did
a fine job in
providing
excellent
accommodations
for
the meeting
at
the
Un
iversity
of
Edinburgh.
The
meeting
was
run
a
long
the!
nes
of
the
,A,mericcn
meetings
with appl
i
cation
papers
and
PDP-S
and
PDP-9 workshops. Most
of
the
papers
this time were
about
work
done
on
the
PDP-S,
since
this
is
the
dominent product line
in Europe,
but
indica
tions
are
the
PDP-9
and
PDP-l 0 papers will
be
forthcoming
next
time.
John
Hall, the
Papers
Chairman,
had his hands full
trying
to
fit a
large
number
of
papers
into
a crowded
agenda.
Herethings
differed
from
the
American
meetings in
that
all
papers
weredistributed
previous
to the
sessions.
Attendees were
thus
given
a
chance to read the paper, and the
oral presentation
was limited
to
five or
ten
minutes, and
in some
cases, not
at
all.
At
the
end
of
each
session
the
authors
came
forward
to
answer
questions
from
the
audience.
The sessions
were
run in
parallel,
and
this met
with
some
disapproval
from
attendees.
Since
many
were interested
in
all
papers,
it
was recommended
that
future
meetings
be
longer with no
parallel
sessions.
It
was
also
decided to
continuewith
one
meeting
per
year
in Europe
because
international
travelrestrictions
are
severe
in some
countries.
My
trip
was made possible
by
a
recent
decision
of
the
Executive
Board
to provide
funds
from
the
DECUS
treasury
to
enable
the
DECUS
President
toattendthe
European
meeting
each year,
and
to
en
a b
I
e
the
European Chairman
to
attend one
American
meeting
per
year.
Itis
clearly evident that
this
has
been
a wise
decision.
The American
and
European DECUS
organizationsare getting
large andvigorous,
and
we simply must
maintainclose
ties.
From
thequality ofthe
papers
presented,
I wouldsay
that there
is
I
tt
Ie
di
fference between
the
workers on
both
sides
of
the
Atlantic.
With
the
rapid
growth
of
membership in Europe
it
is
becoming
clear that
we
need
a
Secretary
there.
Just
recently,
DEC
approved
the
hiring
of
a
DECUS
Secretary
for Europe. She will
be
headquartered
in
the
Regional
DEC
office
in
Geneva.
