The International Computer Science Institute is an independent,
nonprofit basic research institute affiliated with the University of
California campus in Berkeley, California. ICSI was started in 1986
and inaugurated in 1988 as a joint project of the Computer Science
Division of UC Berkeley and the GMD - Research Center for Information
Technology GmbH in Germany. Since then, Institute collaborations
within the University have broadened (for instance with the EE
Division as well as other departments, such as Linguistics). The
Institute also receives support from a range of international
collaborations, US Federal grants, and direct industrial sponsorship.
Throughout these changes, the Institute has maintained its commitment
to a pre-competitive research program. The goal of the Institute
continues to be the creation of synergy between world-leading
researchers in computer science and engineering. This goal is best
achieved by creating an open, international environment for both
academic and industrial researchers.

The particular areas of concentration have varied over time, but are
always chosen for their fundamental importance and their compatibility
with the strengths of the Institute staff and the affiliated UC
Berkeley faculty. ICSI currently has a major focus on two areas:
Internet research, including Internet architecture, related
theoretical questions, and network services and applications; and
Human Centered Computational Intelligence (HCCI), focusing primarily
on natural speech and language processing. Other interests of
Institute scientists spawn smaller collaborative efforts (such as
continuing work in theoretical computer science, and bioinformatics),
which in some cases will ultimately lead to larger projects.
