HOME > Objectives
- to advance and spread computer, information and related technologies among professionals
- to promote mutual relationships among the members
- to promote international technical exchange and collaboration and
- to provide the members with the opportunities to present their research results in computer and information sciences.
Starting with about 500 member initially, the Institute has made a remarkable expansion over the last 41 years and has (as of March, 2014) 33,000 individual, 142 special, and 276 institutional members.
The Institute has been actively seeking international affiliation. The Institute became a regular member of IFIP in 1979, established cooperative relationships with the ACM, IEEE, IEEE Computer Institute, IPSJ, IEICE-ISS and KOCSEA.
Societies and Special Interest Groups ; The Institute has 5 Societies and 14 Special Interest Groups(SIGs). Activities in each Society and SIG include holding international and domestic conferences, running varies seminars, and publishing newsletters and proceedings.

Four branches of the Institute have been established to promote regional characteristics and to maintain regional balance nationwide. These are the Honam and Cheju Branch, Youngnam Branch, Choongchung Branch, and Kangwon Branch.
The Institute publishes two Journals, an Engilsh Journal, and a Communications. The Journal, which aims at publishing new and innovative research results, is published in two categories: Journal JOK, a monthly publication, covers Computer Systems and Theory, Softwares and Applications, DataBases, Information Networking. Journal KTCP, a monthly publication, covers Computing Practices. [Go to Journal Homepage] The English Journal published quarterly is Journal of Computing Science and Engineering(JCSE). The Communications is a monthly publication which carries articles on technological trends and announcement of the Institute.
The Institute holds conferences twice a year-the Fall conferences in university and the Korea Computer Congress in other areas. The conference programs include technical sessions, invited lectures, tutorials, and panel sessions. Regular general assembly meeting are also held during the Fall conferences.
To encourage collaboration with domestic information technology industry, the Institute sponsors an annual Information Industry Review Symposium. It also holds an annual workshop jointly with the Korean Computer Scientists and Engineers Association in America(KOCSEA) to exchange technical information and to import advanced information technology from abroad.
The Institute holds a National Olympiad in Informatics annually and participates in the International Olympiad in Informatics sponsored by UNESCO, which is a well-respected programming competition for personal computers. Through these activities, the Institute is trying to lead computer science education in high schools and help build public understanding of computer and information technologies.
Other regular activities of the Institute include sponsoring the Outstanding Student Paper Contest in Information Science , National PC Programming Competition, and various other activities. Besides, many research projects funded by the Government and the industry are initiated and performed by members through the Institute.
