    • J.4: Search for extraterrestrial intelligence; Organizers: K. I. Kellermann (FRG) and N. S. Kardashev (USSR), Chairman: K. I Kellermann

      "Ten papers were presented in session J.4 on the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI). Following a review of the problem and relevant technology by B. M. Oliver (USA), Oliver and S. Gulkis (USA) reviewed the plans for the NASA-Ames targeted search, and the NASA-JPL cell sky search respectively. J. Tarter (USA), F. Drake (USA) and R. Wielebinski (F. R. Germany) then described their observation of nearby stars and galaxies using several novel techniques. In other papers the problems of optimum frequencies and signal signatures were discussed. The Session was one of the two most widely attended sessions of Commission J (over 150 participants); this reflects the growing world-wide interest in SETI and the rapidly improving technology which now makes meaningful searches possible."
