We are pleased to present these Proceedings of the fifth Sawtooth Software conference, held in Sun Valley, Idaho, in July, 1992.
These papers, which illustrate today's wide use of PC's in interviewing and sophisticatred analysis techniques, sparked lively discussion, challenges, and questions. Each presentation was followed by a prepared discussant, who helped foster audience participation by offering contrasting or complementary views. Many discussants chose to include their comments in this volume. We hope these Proceedings and the resulting interchange of ideas will form the basis for further research, papers, and meetings.
The papers and discussant comments are in the words of the authors; only light copy editing was performed. We thank all participants for their contributions to the advancement of the theory and practice of PC-based interviewing and analysis.
