1. Institute of Computer Science and Technology ICST is the national key research institute in applied computer technology. Founded in 1983, ICST has been committing to the application of computer sciences and technologies to printing and publishing industries, including computer graphics and image process, Chinese information processing, network and database technologies etc. With comprehensive and systematic research works for over two decades, ICST made world-leading computer technological innovations and first-class IT application breakthroughs in the industries. As the result of the works, several technological revolutions in the printing and publishing industries has been successfully achieved and 5 National Awards of Science and Technology granted for ICST. There are two premier research centers as the affiliation of ICST: National Engineering Research Center on New Technology in E-Publishing and Center of Chinese Character Font Design.
In 21st century, responding to the trend of networking and digitalization of information technology, a number of research areas have initiated, including network publishing, digital audio and video, and information security technology.
2. International Computer Science Institute - Berkeley, California The International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) is a leading center for research in computer science and one of the few independent, non-profit research institutes in the United States. With its unique focus on international collaboration, ICSI brings together experts from around the world in areas such as computer networking, speech and language processing, bioinformatics, computer architecture, computer vision, and artificial intelligence. This is accomplished through active international visitor programs in which researchers from abroad visit ICSI to work with staff scientists and their networks of academic, government, and industrial partners.
3. LEAD Computer Science Institute Stanford University's Office of Science Outreach (OSO) encourages and assists Stanford faculty to engage in science outreach -- organized activities targeted at our nation's youth, school teachers, and general public that will increase their interest, understanding, and involvement in math, science, and engineering.
Reporting to Stanford's Dean of Research, the OSO serves faculty throughout the University by assisting them in creating outreach project ideas and proposals, identifying potential partners for them (both within Stanford as well as K-14 schools, science museums, etc), and facilitating information and resource sharing among all of the University's science outreach programs. In addition, the OSO directs several programs in which Stanford faculty and their students can participate. These include:
- An 8-week summer research fellowship program for science teachers
- RISE, a 7-week summer internship program for high school students
- Academic-year research internships for Foothill College students
- Events and programs for undergraduates from other colleges to learn about research in Stanford labs
- Visits to the Stanford campus by K-12 student groups
- Participation in the Bay Area Science Festival
4. SRI InternationalSRI International is an independent, nonprofit research institute conducting client-sponsored research and development for government agencies, commercial businesses, foundations, and other organizations. SRI also brings its innovations to the marketplace by licensing its intellectual property and creating new ventures.
SRI was founded as Stanford Research Institute in 1946 by a group of West Coast industrialists and Stanford University. SRI formally separated from the University in 1970, and we changed our name to SRI International in 1977. For 65 years, our strengths have been our staff's world-leading expertise and passion for working with clients on important challenges. SRI is well known for its legacy of innovations in communications and networks, computing, economic development and science and technology policy, education, energy and the environment, engineering systems, pharmaceuticals and health sciences, homeland security and national defense, materials and structures, and robotics.
