        Review of Electronic Digital Computers Joint AIEE-IRE Computer Conference - Papers and Discussions presented at the Joint AIEE-IRE Computer Conference Philadelphia PA December 10-12 1951

      New York: American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1952. First Edition. Wraps. Very Good. First Edition. 114 pages. 8 1/4 x 11 inches. Publisher's tan printed wrappers. Text illustrations. Previous owner's name (Joseph D. Chapline, Jr.) inked on front wrapper. Minor discoloration to front wrapper in a few places. Several pages in the rear lightly creased, a bit of edgewear. Wraps. The first joint AIEE-IRE Computer conference, conducted with the assistance of the newly created Association for Computing Machinery. The purpose of the conference was "to assess the adequacy of the designs of present working high-speed digital computers in order to point out the direction which computer design should go, to make comptuers best for the jobs that they have been doing and for the jobs that they will have to do" (from MacWilliam's keynote speech). 18 papers were delivered, including "The UNIVAC System" by Eckert, "Performance of the UNIVAC System" by McPherson, "The Burroughs Laboratory Computer" by Hoberg, "The ORDVAC" by Meagher, "The operation and Logic of the Mark III Electronic Calculator in View of Operating Experience" by Poorte, "The EDSAC Computer" by Wilkes, and many others. There is also an article by Felker on "The Transistor as a Digital Computer Component" - the transistor was invented in 1948 at Bell Labs and was only just starting to be incorporated into military and civilian applications. Joseph D. Chapline, Jr. was a research associate in mathematics at the Moore School of Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. He worked on the differential analyzer during World War II, solving exterior ballistics equations and working on servo system stability problems. From 1947 to 1955 (when this conference proceeding was published) he was in charge of the Technical Information Department of the Eckert-Mauchly Division of Remington Rand, where he supervised production of technical literature on the UNIVAC. He was also one of two people in charge of the Registration portion of the conference's local arrangements committee. Origins of Cyberspace 740.1 (p. 398).
