The Handbook on Communication Services
|About|| This manual has been produced jointly between the InfoWin and NICE projects. |
It aims to guide you through the evolving information infrastructure and networks. For new and inexperienced users the objective is to provide advice and recommendations on best practice. In order to make life easier for participants in international research the EC had launched the SONAH project (Services on National Hosts) - a co-operative project whose aim was to produce a set of recommendations and services which enabled European research project participants to use electronic communications most efficiently. These recommendations have been maintained and updated by the two follow-up ACTS projects InfoWin (Information Window for ACTS and National Hosts) and NICE (National Host Interconnection Experiments). All recommendations are based are based on standardised formats, either legal or de facto. The recommendations have been developed for participants in ACTS (Advanced Communications Technology and Services), a Forth Framework Programme of the EC but the recommendations have an impact far beyond this particular target group and out to many different types of user groups.
