The system described was effective in obtaining a complete record of the discussions which arose during a week-long symposium with over 300 participants. Each individual wrote a publishable summary of his question or comment on a special numbered card immediately after speaking. This not only provided an accurate report but greatly facilitated preparation for publication.
