More information

Academic Computer Centre CYFRONET AGH was established 40 years ago, in 1973. Foundation of the Centre was given by the Krakow University Rectors’ College members, which in 1971 put forward a proposal to the state authorities to purchase a modern, large and multi-access computer for the Krakow scientific community and create the inter-university computer centre. Formally, the Centre was established on March 23, 1973 by the Minister of Science and Higher Education under the name Community Computational Centre CYFRONET-KRAKOW. Under this name the Centre operated until 1992, when it was renamed to the Academic Computer Centre CYFRONET-KRAKOW. Another name change took place in December 1998. ACK CYFRONET-KRAKOW converted to the Academic Computer Centre CYFRONET of the University of Science and Technology (ACK CYFRONET AGH). The Centre, which is organizationally and financially an autonomous unit of the AGH-UST in Krakow, is now one of the largest supercomputing and networking centers in Poland.
