Welcome to the Web site of CSI, Chennai Chapter!
The seed for the Computer Society of India (CSI) was first sown in the year 1965 with a handful of IT enthusiasts who were a computer user group and felt the need to organize their activities. They also wanted to share their knowledge and exchange ideas on what they felt was a fast emerging sector. Today the CSI takes pride in being the largest and most professionally managed association of and for IT professionals in India. The purposes of the Society are scientific and educational directed towards the advancement of the theory and practice of computer science & IT.
In a span of less than 4 decades, the organisation has grown to an evitable size of 30,000 strong members consisting of professionals with varied backgrounds including Software developers, Scientists, Academicians, Project Managers, CIO’s, CTO’s & IT vendors to just name a few. It has spread its branches all over the country. Currently rooted firmly at 62 different locations, CSI has plans of opening many more chapters & activity centers in smaller towns and cities of the country. The idea is to spread the knowledge, and provide opportunities to as many interested as possible.
:: The CSI Vision: IT for Masses
Keeping in mind the interest of the IT professionals & computer users, CSI works towards, making the profession an area of choice amongst all sections of the society. The promotion of Information Technology as a profession is the top priority of CSI today. To fulfill this objective, the CSI regularly organizes conferences, conventions, lectures and gives various awards. And at the same time it also ensures that regular training and skill updating are organised for the IT professionals. CSI also works towards a global approach, by seeking out alliances with organizations overseas who may be willing to come forward and participate in such activities. CSI also helps governments in formulating IT strategy & planning. .

From the Chairman’s Desk
It is great to be a part of the country’s first IT professionals’ Society – Computer Society of India. I am doubly happy to be the Chairman of this Chennai Chapter for this year.
This year we are planning to increase our activities by holding more no. of meetings and seminars and make our chapter stronger.
We are also trying to do away with paper invites and send only email invitations. Besides, the details will be published in our website. Hence please do visit our website and check for the meeting updates.
we plan to have an International Conference on Software Engineering by the Division II of the CSI headed by Mr. H.R. Mohan during Dec 17-19, 2009 at Chennai. This conference comes back to Chennai after 12 years. It is also proposed to have a session during the conf. to felicitate Prof. H.N.Mahabala, the past president, CSI & past chairman, CSI Chennai who will be completing 75 years in Dec 2009.
We also have a couple of International Conferences during December 2009 by some of the student chapters.
Apart from the model examinations for the Plus two students , we plan to conduct an “eye opener” for the plus two students who are aspiring for the engineering courses after their +2.
As a combined force, we can achieve wonders and make our chapter take its rightful place in the comity of Societies.
I appreciate our fellow member Mr. S. Krishnamorthy for sparing his valuable time to maintain the chapter’s web site and continuously updating the events and activities.
Thank You all,
With best regards
