An interesting conference which among other things prints the Organization of the National Joint Computer Conference resolution. It also includes a paper by Eckert "Univac-Larc, the next step in computer design". The Larc, while technically viable, was very expensive to make, and only 2 were ever installed - one at Lawrence Livermore Laboratory and the second at the US Navy Research and Development Center. The effort was a response to IBM's "Stretch" transistorized supercomputer.
