Founded under the Establishment Decision No 246/CP, dated December 27, 1976 with the name of Institute of Computer Science and Cybernetics (ICSC). ICSC was renamed to Institute of Informatics (IOI) in 1989. In 1993, IOI merged with Centre for Systems and Management, and Centre of Applied Mathematics into the Institute of Information Technology (IOIT). IOIT belongs to Vietnamese Academy of Science and Technology (VAST).

IOIT is a leading national center for research and development on Information Technology (IT) in Vietnam.

  • Studies of basic problems of informatics, mathematical and technical aspects of IT, application of IT in socio-economic systems and industrial manufacturing processes.
  • Design and development of IT products, especially software.
  • Application of IT in different sectors of the economy.
  • Technology transfer in the IT area.
  • Technical consulting in IT projects.
  • IT training for scientific researchers.

In its R&D activities, IOIT has been conducting several national-level scientific projects. Many research papers written by IOIT staff have been published in leading computer science journals in Vietnam as well as in the world. The Institute has also sponsored, hosted and co-organized many International and National scientific conferences in ICT area. From 2001 to 2006, 25 books in IT were written by IOIT researchers and published, 211 articles and 328 scientific reports were presented in different National and International conferences / workshops on IT.
