The Ukraine figures prominently in three articles in this issue. The first is based on the 1969 Annual Meeting of the Ukrainian SSR Academy, at which the subject of economic cybernetics was discussed. The work of the Academy's various economic institutes is outlined, summarizing some of the highlights of research in mathematical economics and control systems. The second article on the Ukraine discusses achievements and problems of computer systems in the Republic, particularly industrial applications for process control. The final article is a popularized description of the automatic computer design system developed at the Kiev Institute of Cybernetics. Also featured are photographs and description of the Ruta-110D, the first Soviet disc memory unit on display in Moscow at the Exhibition of National Economic Achievements. Other articles on computer activity analyze the dispute that is currently raging in Polish technical circles and on the system of computer centers in Romania. With this issue, [Soviet Cybernetics Review] initiates a bimonthly publication policy.
