INSTITUTE FOR COMPUTER SCIENCES AND TECHNOLOGY

Computer technology is one of the most exciting and dynamic technology
developments over the past 40 years. No longer the exclusive tools of scientists
and engineers, computers are now common in our offices, factories, and schools.
The rapid pace of technology change makes planning and implementing computer
applications increasingly complex.

The Institute for Computer Sciences and Technology (ICST) at the National Bureau
of Standards (NBS), serves government and industry by providing standards, tests
methods, and technical assistance to advance new uses of computer technology and
to spur productivity advancement.

ICST carries out technical programs that help organizations select and use new
technology for improved productivity and service delivery. Products include
technology forecasts, workshops and seminars, and selection guides to aid in
planning for the use of new technology. The development of national and
international computer standards is an especially important activity. Here, ICST
plans a key role in fostering standards by supporting the voluntary standards
process and developing tests and test methods for new standards. Uniform
international standards help to preserve the competitive position of the U.S.
computer industry and to expand the market for computer products and services.
Users need standards to link off-the-shelf commercial products of different
manufacturers and to make full use of staff training and skills.

To carry out its programs, ICST works with a broad spectrum of organizations
including Federal, State and local governments, industry computer users and
manufacturers, research organizations, and voluntary standards groups.
