1 ISTITUTO DI SCIENZA E TECNOLOGIE DELLINFORMAZIONE A. FAEDO P. Maestrini October 2005
2 The Institute of Information Science and Technologies (ISTI) The Institute of Information Science and Technologies (ISTI) was constituted in 2002 as a result of a merger between the Istituto CNUCE (CNUCE-CNR) and the Istituto di Elaborazione dellInformazione (IEI-CNR). The Institute is located in the CNR Research Area of Pisa. ISTI is named in honour of Alessandro Faedo, former Rector of the University of Pisa and President of CNR, in recognition of his important contribution to the advancement of Information Science and Technologies in the Italian academic communities.
3 IEI and CNUCE IEI The beginnings of the Istituto di Elaborazione dell'Informazione (IEI) can be traced back to 1954 when Pisa University, on the advice of the Nobel laureate Enrico Fermi and financially backed by the provinces of Pisa, Lucca and Livorno decided to design and construct a computer intended entirely for scientific use, the first in Italy. The CSCE (Centre for Studies on Electronic Computing) was thus founded, and in 1961 the CEP - Pisan Electronic Computer - was inaugurated. In 1962 the CSCE became part of the Italian National Research Council, and in 1968 was renamed Istituto di Elaborazione dell'Informazione (IEI). CNUCE CNUCE was founded on 5th July 1965 as the National University Computing Centre with the goal of providing various university faculties with a valid computing support. In 1973 CNUCE became part of the National Research Council (CNR) under the Committee for Engineering and Architecture. Besides the necessary economic support for developing Computing Services which by then had become widespread in Italy, CNR also provided the CNUCE Institute with an appropriate framework to conduct research in Computer Science.

9 Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologie dellInformazione A. Faedo (ISTI-CNR) Research Organization Research Laboratories pursue a well-defined set of strongly related scientific objectives. The teams include permanent staff, visitors, post-doctoral fellows and doctoral students, with an average number of 10 members per Lab. Research Laboratories are largely self-financed and subject to periodical evaluation. Technology Centres are aimed at enhancing and exploiting the patrimony of competence existing at ISTI in specific areas. Typical activities are pre-competitive development, technology transfer and training. Technology Centers work in close collaboration with Research Laboratories, in order to foster the sharing of competence and the bi-directional flow of knowledge. Curiosity driven projects aim at exploring matters and at pursuing objectives that go beyond, and possibly anticipate, the national and international research programs. Projects are submitted by single or multiple research laboratories. The projects proposals are evaluated by the Scientific Council and funded by the Institute. Independent Research consists of free initiatives by individuals or small groups, aimed at widening and deepening their competence, at cultivating the spirit of diversity and at exploring interdisciplinary connections. The publication of innovative results and the open circulation of ideas within the scientific community are considered prime goals. Independent research is supported by ISTI under a funding scheme that rewards scientific production and privileges young researchers.
