Subject: Development of Chronological Terms


A nonprofit Alliance for the Advancement of Technology (AAT) is 
pursuing development
of a metric-time standard, the Integrated Chronological Applications 
System (ICAS),
that is based on a premise that learning to use a system of metric 
time is similar
to learning a second language. Uses of ICAS are integrated relative 
the use of various
ICAS or non-ICAS measures in large part via the use of term sets. 
Certain guidelines
and options for the development of various term sets are described in 
the ICAS standard.
AAT ICAS in Brief version 6.01 is available in both HTML and PDF versions from
AAT ICAS Itinica on the aatideas web at via Internet.

As the technology is emerging, the term sets in ICAS version 6.01 are 
not fully delimited.
In addition, term sets for users of metric time in languages other than English
may also be developed.
