About the Institute
Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics (GIC) is the leading informatics organization of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. It was founded in 1957 as a Computational Center of the Academy of Science of Ukraine on the base of the computer lab which had developed the 1st Soviet computer in 1950. It was among the very first computers in the World.
Founder and the first director of GIC academician Victor Glushkov (1923-1983) is world-wide recognized as a pioneer of the computer era (IEEE Computer Pioneer Award for digital automation of computer architecture).
GIC has major experience in development of the legal and technological components of the information society policy in Ukraine. Besides, GIC is involved in the preparation of materials for high level international collaboration in the information society area.
