Welcome note
by the Director of FORTH-ICS

Welcome to the Web site of the Institute of Computer Science (ICS) of the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH).

The Institute of Computer Science has had a relatively long history and recognised tradition, since its establishment in 1983, in conducting basic and applied research, developing applications and products, providing services, and playing a leading role in Greece and internationally, in the fields of Information and Communication Technologies.

Activities of ICS cover important research and development areas, encompassing new perspectives, emerging fields of research and technological challenges worldwide.

In its continuing efforts to exploit its research activities and results, the Institute contributes significantly to the diffusion of modern Information and Communications Technologies in the public and private sectors. Thus, ICS acts as a catalyst for the development of the Information and Communication Technologies sector in Greece, and the creation of favourable conditions for the emergence of an Information Society acceptable by all citizens.

The continuous effort of improving the quality of our work has led FORTH-ICS in certifying our research activities alongside with products and services provided, according to the requirements set by ISO 9001 quality management standard
