The Institute of Computing Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (ICT) was founded in 1956. It is the first academic establishment to specialize in comprehensive research on computer science and technology in China. The ICT has successfully built China’s first general-purpose digital computer and now has turned itself into a research and development base for high-performance computer technology. It is also the place where China’s first general-purpose CPU chip was born in Loongson. The ICT is the cradle for China’s computer undertaking. The ICT has nurtured hundreds of earliest computer professionals in China because of this growth. The ICT successively turned off many academic institutions, such as the Institute of Microelectronics, the Computing Center, the Institute of Software, the Computer Network Information Center, etc. by the development of science and technology and are affiliated to the Chinese Academy of Sciences, as well as high-tech companies, such as Lenovo and Dawning. The ICT has scored a remarkable success in scientific research and in creating scientific and technological achievements over the past 50 years. The first organization to accomplish the undertakings obtaining 664 scientific and technological achievements in total and won altogether 192 awards by the end of 2009. Among these, 37 are national-level awards and 155 are ministry-level awards. Following the principles of “fundamental, strategic, and advanced research”, taking the goal of “ascending the international forward position, being concerned about the nation’s economy and the people’s livelihood, and leading China’s information industry” as its duty, and advocating the culture of “innovation, realistic approach, unity, and high efficiency”, the ICT is striving to be a world’s top academic institution. ICT has always attached great importance to the academic exchange and cooperation with the international science and technology communities and has established chains of scientific and technological cooperation and exchanged many well-known universities, institutions and hi-tech enterprises from all parts of the world. ICT sends over 150 persons oversea every year, and has hosted many international conferences including ISCA08 and ICDCS08. The team of excellent overseas scholars are the main people who has a significant influence on Chinas computer graduate education through the “Dragon-Star Program”. The graduate courses are given in China by overseas Chinese eminent professors. Close cooperation with enterprises such as AMD and ST-Micro has spread up progress in research projects such as Dawning and Godson which helped in ICT to upgrade the level of its results. Since its first enrollment of postgraduates in 1960 and up to the autumn of 2010, the ICT has fostered 839 Ph D-degree students and 1544 master-degree students for the country. At present, the number of postgraduates enrolled at the ICT reach 1068, among which 442 are doctoral candidates and 626 are masters candidates, and besides there are 32 postdoctors at the station. The ICT has the largest number of doctoral candidates with computer-related majors in China. The ICT has obtained a series of accomplishments in professional training as a result of 50 years’ hard work. The main things of ICT are: A key training base for doctoral candidates in the first-level discipline of “computer science and technology”. The key education-base of the Chinese Academy of Sciences for doctoral candidates, It was authorized by the State to be a postdoctoral station, It has a state authorization who award masters degrees to those with equivalent graduate and post-graduate education. The ICT was awarded the title of “Outstanding Institution in the Management of Academic Degree and Postgraduate Education of China”, by the Degree Office of the State Council and the Ministry of Education in 1999. 4 PhD dissertations had been selected to be the “National Excellent PhD Dissertations” by the end of 2010.
