Foreword (This foreword is not part of American National Standard ____________ )

Under the direction of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) National Committee for Information Technology Standards (NCITS), the Technical Committee on Vocabulary, K5, prepared this American National Standard Dictionary of Information Technology (ANSDIT). The dictionary was developed by studying the use of terms throughout the field of information technology, including computers, data communications, data processing, text processing, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and related fields. The ANSDIT has been harmonized with ISO/IEC-2382, Information Technology Vocabulary (ITV), for which Technical Committee NCITS/K5 served as the technical advisory group for the American National Standards Institute.

Each term in the ANSDIT is a hypertext anchor. In each of the definitions, the first occurrence of a term (defined in the Introduction below) is a hotspot.

The material contained in this standard was produced by members of NCITS Technical Committee K5, who were:

Lionel A. Difford, Past International Representative
Eugene M. Dwyer, Project Editor; produced the document in HTML
Evie Gray, U.S. Department of Commerce, NTIA/ITS
Jimmy J. Logan, Infodynamics, Inc.
Roy P. Mullinax, Secretary; U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
Helmut E. Thiess, Chair
Joseph David Weigel, MTI
Saul A. Zaveler, Past Secretary; U.S. Department of the Air Force
